    On Tuesday, we learned that former Thatcham Liberal Democrat Mayor, Gary Johnson, has joined UKIP.

    Asked for his reaction as Chair of Newbury and West Berkshire Lib Dems, Tony Vickers told the Newbury Weekly News (NWN):

    "The news was no surprise to me. Gary resigned from the Liberal Democrats after the 2015 election and cited our policy on the EU as the reason. This shows more integrity than our MP, who seems happy to help implement UKIP's manifesto while at the same time admitting it will be worse for his country and his constituents than remaining in the EU - which he still believes in!

In the keynote speech given by Tom Brake MP he confirmed that the Liberal Democrats do not reject the referendum results but neverthess believe that the public should have the right to reject a deal if the government fails to achieve an acceptable result .

  • Winning Candidate Imogen Shepherd Dubey
    Article: Feb 20, 2017


    Thanks to all the NWB people who made phone calls in support of our Wokingham Borough Council by-election candidate. Having lost to the Conservative candidate by just 13 votes last May, Imogen won the seat last Friday with a thumping majority of 696!

    Imogen worked hard at going out to meet voters but the swing to us from the Tories shows that the tide is turning in our favour. We will watch the Stoke Central and Copeland parliamentary by-election results this week with interest. Contact Sue Farrant if you would like to help with those but don't know how.

    Directions
    The alleyway leading to the office is between 67 and 65 Kingsbridge Road, turn rt at the end. The lane is very dark, so bring a torch if you are walking, and come towards the light (!)) The light is on our building and is movement sensitive, so don't worry it you can't see it straight off.
