Welcome!

Welcome to Stafford and Stone Liberal Democrats' website. Here you will find up to date news and information - both local and national - all part of our pledge to 'keep in touch' throughout the year. We cover Stafford Borough and the parliamentary constituencies of Stafford and Stone.

The 2019 General Election is a once in a generation opportunity to reshape our politics, and give hope to the millions of people who want a fairer, brighter future. That's why we launched our 2019 campaign slogan: Stop Brexit. Build a brighter future.

This slogan reflects a positive forward-looking vision for the country. In their own ways, both the Conservatives under Boris Johnson and Labour under Jeremy Corbyn are stuck in the past, failing time and again to build a better future. Jo Swinson and the Liberal Democrats have an ambitious plan for the future of our country, where every person, every community and our planet can thrive.

This General Election is about the direction of our country for the next generation.

The Liberal Democrats are the strongest party of Remain and Alec Sandiford in Stone and Alex Wagner in Stafford are ready to fight to stop Brexit and ensure that we can build a brighter future for our United Kingdom.

    "This law needs to change. ITV needs to change."

    "The Liberal Democrats' position in this election and that of our leader is unique: Jo Swinson is the only leader of a national party fighting to stop Brexit.

    "Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn should not be allowed to sidestep debating the issue of Brexit with someone who wants to remain, and ITV should not give them the opportunity to do so.

    "That is why this is an incredibly disappointing verdict. Not just for the Liberal Democrats but also for democracy in this country, and for every Remainer who deserves to have a voice in this debate.

    1. To Stop Brexit

    Every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote stop the Brexit mess the that Conservatives and Labour have left us in.

    A Liberal Democrat government will Stop Brexit on day one. Then we'll use the £50 billion Remain Bonus to properly fund our public services and tackle inequality across the country.

    Britain just isn't working the way it should be. People feel disillusioned. The old parties have failed to provide find solutions for the problems we face. Britain desperately needs change.

    Johnson and Corbyn want to go backwards. Johnson dreams of empire, and Corbyn wishes it was the 70s.

    But Jo Swinson is planning the future.

    The UK should be leading the world in tackling the climate crisis, but the Tories are failing to address it.

    As part of our 'Plan for a Brighter Future', we will fight the climate crisis with all the ambition and urgency required.

    This is how we'll do it:

    1) Halve emissions by 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2045

    We need to protect our NHS. Under the Conservative government, it's struggling to cope with severe staff shortages, chronic under-funding and crumbling hospital buildings.

    All of these problems would be made much worse by a Tory or Labour Brexit that would end free movement and make it harder to attract nurses and doctors from the EU.

    I'm sure you've noticed. It's pretty hard not to.

    There's rather a lot of few new faces among our ranks.

    In recent months, the Liberal Democrats have welcomed more and more brilliant, progressive MPs into our ranks. MPs like Chuka Umunna and Luciana Berger have joined us from the Labour Party, while MPs like Sarah Wollaston and Sam Gyimah have joined us from the Conservatives.

    Brexit has already taken far longer and cost far more than anyone said it would. But this is just the beginning. New research has uncovered a shocking figure:

    Brexit will slash our economy by £50 billion over the next five years.

    Britain will be £50 billion worse off. That's money taken from our schools, our police and our communities. That's even more families having to use food banks. That's the NHS having to turn people away in their hour of need.

    We have already lost more than 5,000 EU nurses in the last two years.

    Day in, day out, millions of people are affected by mental health issues across the country. But when they ask for help, it's often not available.

    The NHS has been driven to crisis point by chronic underinvestment by the Tories. Their reckless pursuit of Brexit means we have already lost more than 5,000 EU nurses in the last two years.
