The Liberal Party in Lincolnshire exists to build a liberal society in which every citizen shall possess liberty, property and security and none shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity. Its chief care is for the rights and opportunities of the individual and in all spheres it sets freedom first.

Within Lincolnshire we support local Town and Parish Councillors and County and District Councils. We believe in the community need for the City of Lincoln to be made a unitary authority and for the remaining areas to be split into Lindsey Kestevan and Holland with strengthened districts and town councils this makes for a more viable arrangement and also resonates more with the community.  We also would like to see far more support for public transport and less dependence on road traffic which creates  levels of dependency despite its convenience and should not be the sole method of transport.   Our Coastal Communities particularly need good infrastructure and there needs to be a rail link across the humber connecting Barton on Humber with Hull and a reconnection of Louth to the rail network.  If we don't want our country landscape to be populated by bags, cans and plastic bottles we need to take action now to set the environmental bar to our personal action and have that reflected in our policies for schools, youth clubs, colleges and universities so that students realise that individual action means taking personal responsibility for litter and what we consume.

Cllr Charles Shaw explains why the Liberal Democrats are losing members grounded in real service to their local communities. These people are Councillors and activists who have seen the need to go back to supporting their community. These are Local Lincs Liberals. 

The video above quite simply shows the rudeness and arrogance of Mr Nick Clegg of The Lib Dems when speaking to Cllr Steve Radford as President of The Liberal Party on Andrew Neil's Television programe

and Cllr Radfords polite continuation.  The Manx video below shows how great democracy can be achieved whatever the size of your country.

LINCOLNSHIRE LIBERAL MEETING

 

The next meeting of Lincolnshire Liberals will be in central Lincoln on 17th July 2020 subject to the Coronavirus regulations and will be held on a skype type platform if necessary.  This will be following the Liberal Party Summer Assembly of 4th July on the internet platform.  We are all working to support the end to the Lockdown.

Cllr Charles Shaw speaks out on the Coronavirus

Anticipating the widely awaited Liberal Party policy statement on post the pandemic Charles Shaw has made it clear that we can have no fear of standing up for peoples views on the pandemic.  The Post Covid 19 period must not be used as an excuse for silencing those who feel that London precautions were wrongly applied to the provinces and we should get back to normality as soon as practicable. 

Lincolnshire Liberals are proud to supply video content from across the political spectrum which supports our views and/or entertains website viewers.  There are great people in most political parties and all are entitle to a view but naturally we think that Local Lincolnshire Liberals are the best having an independent view and that centralist collectivist parties are not the answer if we are to ensure local equality and fairness.

 

Lincolnshire Liberals respect the right to self determination and support the implementation of the result of the 2016 referendum, however, unlike the Liberal Democrats encourage open debate amongst all members on the EU and other political issues and have leave and remain members. This applies to other areas such as the Environment, Transport, Education and on how we can build a fair society recognising that Freedom and Security are not always the same.

Northern Ireland 

Assembly The Party

notes with concern that the Stormont Assembly has not sat for 33 months. 

Northern Ireland has been left in a state of limbo by assembly members 

and the party urges all elected members to

consider their responsibili5es to the province and to show leadership and maturity. The power sharing arrangement 

ensured a forum for debate and a visible

 sign that the province has returned to 

stability after decades of con´Čéict

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No to Fracking in the UK

Fracking and Subterranean earth tremors 

The Liberal Party notes the continued series of

 earth tremors in the vicinity of 

drilling site at Preston New Road in Lancashire

The party reiterates its support for the termination of fracking in the Uk. The party

believes that government support 

would be better directed to local 
renewable energy schemes and the long-term development of storage technology.

Hong Kong

 

the Liberal party records that The transfer of sovereignty over Hong Kong,[1][2][3] commonly known as the handover of Hong Kong  occurred at midnight on 1 July 1997, when the United Kingdom ended administration for the colony of Hong Kong and passed control of the territory to ChinaHong Kong became a special administrative region and continues to maintain governing and economic systems separate from those of mainland China.
 
We deplore increasing attempts by the People's Republic of China to undermine the rights and liberties assured in that transfer agreement
 
We deplore the build up of troops along the Hong Kong border designed to intimidate the population of Hong Kong.
 
Therefore with immediate effect the UK government should declare all UK citizens at the time of transfer  1st July 1997 should be given automatic right to live in the UK, unless they had been subject to serious criminal convictions

Skellingthorpe Surgery

The Liberal Party notes with dismay the decision to close the Skellingthorpe GP Surgery and the complicity of the NHS commissioning in this process and call upon the GP's to hand the surgery over as a gift to the Skellingthorpe Local Council for use as Community Consulting rooms and othe needed facilities.  This reduction in services based on a complete misunderstanding and lack of care and interest in small town and village communities is happening too often across Lincolnshire.
