We are a band of dedicated individuals pledged to keep liberal, democratic values flourishing locally, nationally and internationally; to promote greater equality, environmentalism and to fight for the people of Dudley, Stourbridge and Halesowen. We care about community-based local politics, and we work hard to get individual Liberal Democrats elected to all levels of Government, with a focus on Dudley Council especially. Our aim is to keep in touch with the local communities through residents' surveys and by distributing our local "Focus" leaflets, not just at election time but all year round.

    How the Party is run, by, and on behalf of, every member is fundamental to how successful we are at delivering our liberal vision of Britain.

    The 2019 General Election Review (the Thornhill Review) set out how we must change in order to succeed at future elections. Since its publication, in many areas we have made strides, but there is still much to do.

    Our campaign has already got off to a flying start in the by-election caused by Owen Paterson's disgrace.

    The local party had already made impressive progress in this May's local elections. They secured a clear second place and created many marginal Conservative-Liberal Democrat wards.

    Now we have a brilliant opportunity to turbo-charge that growth in our support and to see just how angry voters are about sleaze and sewage. Ed Davey is already on his third visit there.

    The Liberal Democrats have always understood that thriving businesses and motivated entrepreneurs are central to our communities, innovation, quality of life and international standing we all want.

    It was the Liberal Democrats who pioneered wind power generation, foresaw the banking crisis, and are today prepared to work to rebuild the trading environment damaged by Brexit and the pandemic.

    "Hong Kong now faces unprecedented and fundamental crisis since its establishment as a free trade port. The worst event which had taken place was the Japanese occupation. The Japanese turned this once flourishing, special and vibrant place into an abyss. The Operation Armour, which directs all life-saving materials for the post-war Hong Kong, was based on a mutual trust and support and a special bond traversing blood and racial differences. It is no exaggeration that the people of Hong Kong owes something to Her Majesty. After delving into the history of WWII Hong Kong, I can say it fundamentally changed my view and I am feeling I have some special duty as one of the British Nationals.

    We got a bit wet during the march last saturday in Glasgow...

    But... we`re

    Back Home in the dry now!

    Fatima and I left Glasgow this morning to drive, with our caravan, back home to Nottinghamshire. Nice dry day for packing up and driving for six hours! Listening to the radio 4 news at lunchtime and then watching the TV news when back home, the draft agreeement for COP26 really looks a pretty tame affair. Lots of nice words hoping for this and urging that and calling for the other, but precious little in the way of hard ACTION.

    On Monday 20th September, at Autumn Conference, party members amended a key passage of the Preamble to the Party Constitution, to reject prejudice and discrimination on the grounds of non-religious belief or caste.

    Previously, the Preamble recognised religious belief but not non-religious belief.

    The passage, in the second paragraph of the Preamble, now reads: "Upholding these values of individual and social justice, we reject all prejudice and discrimination based upon race, ethnicity, caste, heritage, class, religion or belief, age, disability, sex, gender or sexual orientation and oppose all forms of entrenched privilege and inequality."
