    Speaking in reference to last night's horrific events in the Borough, Lib Dem leader Tim Farron said;

    "My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families, and I would like to pay tribute to the emergency services for their professional response in such terrible circumstances.

    The terrorists kill us because they hate us and what we stand for. They hate our democracy and our freedom. We refuse to let them win. We must respond with a vigorous commitment to our democracy.

    Lib Dems' Penny for NHS would raise £14.9million for the NHS and Social Care in Windsor & Maidenhead

    In their first major manifesto commitment of the election campaign, the Liberal Democrats have announced they would plug funding gaps for the NHS and social care by putting a penny on Income Tax.

    The tax would raise an additional £14.9 million for The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead, with an extra £10million for the NHS and £4.9million for social care each year.

    This is the party's flagship spending commitment and its first major policy announcement for the election. The Liberal Democrats' manifesto will also set out a 'five-point recovery plan' for NHS and social care services.

    At least 70% of Brits would happily pay an extra 1p of Income Tax in every pound if that money was guaranteed to go to the NHS, an ITV poll found last October.

  • Lib dems Fastest Growing Party
    Article: Apr 18, 2017

    The Liberal Democrats have gained 1000 new members since Theresa May announced a snap General Election.

    In the first hour following the announcement the party saw a surge in membership as people flocked to support the party and change the direction of the country away from the Conservatives' disastrous hard Brexit.

    Membership of the party has boomed and the number of members is the highest of this Century.

    President of the Liberal Democrats, Sal Brinton, said:

    "This is a time when liberals must stand together, and people across the country are doing just that.

    "The surge in our membership proves that the Liberal Democrats are seen as the real opposition to this Conservative Brexit Government.

    "While Theresa May is seeking to divide the country, the Liberal Democrats are the only party fighting to keep Britain Open, Tolerant and United."
