Welcome to the online home of the South Norfolk Liberal Democrats

"The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty , equality and community and in which no-one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity. We champion the freedom, dignity and well being of individuals. We acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents to the full. We aim to disperse power, to foster diversity and to nurture creativity. We believe that the role of the state is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions which affect their lives."

From the Preamble to the Liberal Democrat Party Constitution.

    As the former Business Secretary I can't not intervene at this decisive moment in British politics.

    In a speech this week I condemned the Tories and Labour for turning their backs on the economy, and explained that the Liberal Democrats are the only real party of business.

    You don't have to take my word for it. Today the Lib Dems were endorsed by none other than The Economist. And a letter in the Financial Times from prominent tech figures also backs us.

    Azi Ahmed, who stood for the Conservative Party at the last election, introduced Vince Cable who gave a speech on the economy and Brexit in London today.

    Azi grew up in Oldham and served in the Territorial Army, contesting Rochdale for the Conservatives in the 2015 general election. She was deputy chairman of the London Conservative Women's Organisation. She decided to join the Liberal Democrats recently after meeting party leader Tim Farron.

    The Liberal Democrats have compiled the list of the biggest blunders of the Battle for Number 10 and the questions that May and Corbyn have failed to answer.

    Jeremy Corbyn:

    • Corbyn committed a whole new £3bn+ a year unfreezing working age benefits. There's nothing in his manifesto costings to uprate benefits. How is he paying for it?
    • He didn't answer the question on why someone who is worried about Brexit should vote for Labour over the Liberal Democrats.
    • Labour could have voted for unilateral rights for EU citizens to stay in the UK. They didn't. They voted for Article 50. Why didn't he stand up for the 3m EU citizens that call the UK their home?

    Increasingly people are saying that the Liberal Democrats are now the only genuinely pro-business party. Over fifty business leaders recently signed a letter to The Times endorsing the Lib Dems1 and the party has published a manifesto specifically aimed at entrepreneurs (you can read that here).

    And one business sector more than any other is turning to the Liberal Democrats - the Tech community - reflecting a passionate commitment to free trade, freedom of movement and an open, inclusive and tolerant society.

    The Tories seem to think - if we ignore any difficult question - we don't have to tell the public the truth. If they cannot tell us even the most basic things why should we trust them at all.

    Theresa May seems to be hiding their real agenda from the public.

    The Tories cannot tell us anything about their plans and they are doing it on purpose. They hope to secure a colossal majority and then to take the country for a ride. We cannot let this happen - our schools, hospitals and social care are at risk
