News relating to the UK, Europe and the World from Lib Dem HQ

This morning Liberal Democrat Leader Ed Davey has called on the Prime Minister Boris Johnson to resign, he said:

“Boris Johnson has broken the law and lied to Parliament and the country, and he must now go.

Enough is enough. Conservative MPs must stand up against sewage dumping!

We’re calling out Conservative MPs that voted in favour of dumping sewage into rivers.

Rivers should be safe for swimming, fishing and sustaining wildlife. They are a precious source of drinking water for some. So why are they filled with raw sewage and human waste, destroying them for decades to come?

Shockingly, water companies pumped polluting and harmful raw sewage into water sources over 400,000 times last year. The River Trust has revealed that more than half of England’s rivers are currently failing to pass cleanliness tests due to water companies’ actions.

Sarah Green and Lib Dems

Liberal Democrats are starting work on dismantling the Blue Wall following on from successful local elections in May.

Sarah Green produced a classic Liberal Democrat by-election win in the Chesham & Amersham constituency, overturning a Conservative majority of 16,223 to win with 56.7% of the vote, a majority of 8,028.

Prince Philip

Statement from Ed Davey, Leader of the Liberal Democrats

“Prince Philip dedicated his life to our country. We will always be grateful for his amazing service, not least the powerful legacy he leaves to millions of young people who have taken part in his unique Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.

“His quiet and steadfast counsel and support of The Queen, is perhaps his greatest if unquantifiable contribution to our nation’s history.

“At this sad time for millions, we should never forget Prince Philip was a much-loved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. So our thoughts must be with the whole Royal Family, but in particular with The Queen at this difficult time.”
