  • Sir Ed Davey MP with Plymouth Liberal Democrats Sima Davarian and Hugh Janes (Caroline Voaden)
    Article: Feb 28, 2018

    Sima Davarian and Hugh Janes were among a number of Plymouth Liberal Democrats who supported the South Hams local party's annual dinner to hear Sir Ed Davey MP, former Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change. Sir Ed was upbeat about the current position for green energy and had signed a number of contracts before leaving office that meant the good work of the LibDems in Coalition could continue. Offshore windfarms have exceeded expectations in the energy they provide and it's low cost. At current rates, electricity from wind is about half the price of that predicted from Hinckley C Nuclear Power Station. As the life of wind turbines has increased dramatically this great source of energy is going to be supplying us with power for some time. Gratitude for Sir Ed's far-sightedness as a Minister was widely expressed.

    For us to achieve our goals as a country requires a strong economy, pulling out of one the largest single markets risks everything, I believe people should have the right to u-turn (not just Theresa May!) when it's comes to Brexit. That's why I'm voting Lib-Dem. - Ryan, Stoke

    The Liberal Democrat manifesto launched this week, here are some of the highlights of how it would benefit the people of Plymouth.


    The Liberal Democrats promise an additional £6 billion a year to the NHS and social care, £1 billion of this is earmarked for mental health. Waiting times for mental health care will be made to match those for physical health care. The Liberal Democrats would give an extra £9.6 million to social care in Plymouth, with a cap on the amount elderly people have to pay. This will be funded by adding 1p to income tax. These measures are widely supported by many health care heads and professional bodies and will help deliver complete healthcare for Plymouth.

  • Article: May 5, 2017

    The Liberal Democrats in Plymouth have seen a surge in new members over the last eleven months and especially in the past two weeks.

    New member Connor Clarke said: "I joined the Lib Dems because they are unashamed in pro-EU, tolerant and internationalist outward-looking politics. Whilst Tories push for a Hard Brexit and Labour captiulate to it, only the Lib Dems can offer the effective opposition this country needs."
