@Libdems – A Party on the rise…

by robstickland on 31 July, 2016

Things we’ve heard before: The Libdem’s are finished, heading for extinction… You won’t be surprised to hear, but I disagree.

Referendum Positives…

The Liberal Democrat’s have gained Sherborne Rural constituency seat from the Tories for Dorset County Council. This is a great result, not just for Matt, Dorset Libdems etc. but a great result for the Liberal Democrats in the West and wider afield, to prove what we can do if we use resources wisely and really […]
