    Lib Dem Councillor Peter Wexham, supported by Councillor Carole Mulroney, has been working with the local fishing industry and Government Departments to get further EU grants. These will provide better facilities and safer working conditions for local fishermen.

  • Lib Dem March for Europe
    Article: Sep 1, 2016

    Southend Lib Dems are joining the Lib Dem March for Europe this Saturday (3 September) in London and would welcome any supporters of the EU to join us.

    New member Charlie Grosvenor is helping to get a band from Southend. Speaking to the Southend Lib Dem website Charlie said, 'this decision is being made by the majority of people that voted that day, not the majority of those eligible to vote, and by no means the majority of British people...and now our ill conceived departure from the EU will be shepherded by someone not even duly elected to the office she holds. no shred of this referendum bodes well for democracy as a governing principle and will irrevocably impact not only those that voted against leaving, but our youngest citizens, borne into the EU, and were not even eligible to vote on their own future.'

  • Baroness Ludford

    Joining the Southend Lib Dems and giving a speech will be Baroness Ludford who is the Spokesperson for Europe for the party. She was recently an MEP for London from 2009-2014 and has been a member of the House of Lords since 1997.

    The aftermath of decision to leave the European Union has seen people run to the Liberal Democrats as the home of the pro-EU voter.

    Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron has pledged to run the next General Election campaign with EU Membership at the heart of the campaign.

    With the Labour Party tearing itself apart between the Parliamentary Party and the membership, and the Tories in their own leadership crisis, the Lib Dems have become the home of those who passionately believe in the UK being outward-looking, open and stronger in Europe.
