  • Cllr Barbara Carpenter
    Article: Aug 19, 2016
    By Luigi Gregori

    Persistence pays off. Andover Town Councillor Barbara Carpenter has been campaigning for Andover bus services for many years. One particular battle has been over a Sunday service to Basingstoke. This saga first started back in 2009.

    After five years, Barbara saw some initial success in 2014 when Stagecoach ran three Sunday buses for three weeks as a goodwill gesture. Unfortunately, this then reverted to a single one-way trip to Basingstoke involving a changeover at Overton. Roll on two more years to this July, and Stagecoach are now running four return buses every Sunday to Basingstoke.

    Your priorities form a balanced view on our future in Europe.

    The Bexit vote has left us with an uncertain future.

    Liberal Democrats firmly believe that as a country, we should have a place in the centre of Europe.

    But NO-ONE is offering any suggestions on what that might look like.

    We want to lead the debate on our future in Europe, based on what YOU think is important.

    Commenting on the high court ruling that NHS England can fund the pre-exposure prophylaxis (Prep) drug, Liberal Democrat Health Spokesperson Norman Lamb said:


    "The Liberal Democrats warmly welcome the Court's decision, which is a landmark moment in the fight against HIV. PrEP is a revolutionary treatment which has the potential to save thousands of lives, and it is absolutely right that this should be funded by NHS England.

    "I am now urging the Government and NHS England to work together to ensure that PrEP is made available to all individuals at the highest risk of infection without any further delay."

    Commenting on the decision of the Bank of England to cut interest rates to a record low, Liberal Democrat Treasury Spokesperson, Susan Kramer, said:

    "This is a necessary move by the Bank of England to help our economy as it reels from the impact of Brexit, but we cannot pretend this isn't a deeply worrying sign.

  • Tim Farron and Nick Clegg
    Article: Jul 27, 2016

    Liberal Democrat European Union spokesperson and former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has launched the first briefing paper of his Brexit Challenge project, which analyses the options facing the Government if it intends for Britain to retain significant access to the Single Market.

    While Single Market access is essential to the British economy, and retaining access remains the best of a series of bad options for the economy post-Brexit, it comes with significant challenges and trade-offs. The analysis shows that even if the Government were able to achieve concessions on freedom of movement, seeking to retain significant access to the Single Market would still mean adherence to its rules and regulations, while not having any control or influence over them. It also concludes that the biggest benefit of Single Market access is the removal of non-tariff barriers, such as shared rules and harmonised standards, as opposed to tariffs.
