Keep the UK in the Single Market

Winchester_EU_KingAlf_noslogan.png

The Conservative Government seems intent on a hard Brexit and on stopping parliament having a say on triggering 'Article 50'. So much for 'taking back control'!  

The Winchester and Chandler's Ford Liberal Democrats are standing up for those of us who want to ensure our relationship with Europe is as close as possible. We'll be asking people to sign a petition to keep the UK in the single market on Winchester High Street on Saturday morning but you can also sign it on this website: Keep the UK in the Single Market Petition


Safety Pin Campaign

 The local Liberal Democrat team recently took to Winchester High Street to publicise the national Safety Pin Campaign.

The campaign stems from the fact that since the EU referendum there has been a significant rise in racism and xenophobia in Britain. EU Nationals, immigrants and refugees have suffered racist abuse. 

The safety pin campaign aims to send a clear but simple message to anyone who feels threatened or ill at ease anywhere in public.

Wearing a safety pin says:

  • I want you to feel both safe and welcome
  • I am here to offer help and support
  • I am prepared to stand up against racism
  • I will not tolerate intolerance

The team spoke to dozens of residents and handed out lots of pins, local Councillor Jackie Porter Said; "It was great to see so much support for this initiative. The Liberal Democrats are an open, tolerant and united party. As part of campaigns like this we are fighting for an open, tolerate and united Britain."
