Welcome to the website of the Lichfield, Tamworth and Burton Liberal Democrats.

We cover all the east of Staffordshire including the three towns in our name, but also Burntwood, Uttoxeter and many villages, large and small. Three MPs 'represent' us at Westminster, all elected as Conservative though one has managed to lose the whip!

What guides us? The purpose of all our Lib Dem policies is 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.

That's all easy to say, even our three MPs might sign up to it, but not so easy to put in practice.

What's quite certain is that our government, their government are not delivering it at all.

So would Staffordshire like a change? And would you like to help us achieve that? This web site gives some insight into what we do. Contact us for further information or with offers of help.

    Odd how the Conservatives decided to take away a PR (proportional representation) voting system from us for the election of police, fire and crime commissioners. But now use one to choose their leader. Another example of you obey our rules but thse rules don't apply to us?

    Sticking with FPTP (first past the post) for our national elections keeps us in good company. Of the countries of Europe, only Belarus, that beacon of democracy, uses it.

    Following the resignation of Prime Minister Johnson today, local Liberal Democrats commented on the national political scene.

    "To be honest, it's a big relief," said Paul Ray, Lichfield District and City Councillor. "We seem to have spent the past three years or so listening to ever more improbable promises which we knew were never to be fulfilled. In addition, the constant U-turns and reversals have exposed the lack of honesty from the government, and it's been going on for far too long."

    Each year, thousands of grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings and family friends step up to support a child who is unable to live with their birth parents. They deserve more support.

    Yesterday, I introduced the Kinship Care Bill in the House of Commons. This bill calls on the Government to provide all friends and relatives who look after a child who cannot live with their birth parents with an allowance of at least £137 a week: the same level as for foster carers.
