Welcome to Congleton Liberal Democrats

If you want things to be different, really different, choose the party that is different - the Liberal Democrats. There is hope for a different future, a different way of doing things in Britain, if we're brave enough to make a fresh start. Change for real, change for good.

We stand for a stronger economy in a fairer society, helping every person to get on in life.

The Liberal Democrats are more competent than Labour on the economy and fairer than the Conservatives, the only true Party of the centre ground in British politics.

  • We are the only party who will put money into people's pockets with fair tax cuts, the only party to offer universal childcare and smaller classes in our primary schools, the only party who would use Gordon Brown's wasted billions to create thousands of jobs today by investing in homes, hospitals, schools and public transport to build the green economy of tomorrow, the only party that will rebuild the jobs, homes and hopes this recession has destroyed.

Our intention is that this website will be a useful resource for local people to find out more about the local Liberal Democrats and the campaigns we are running.

    I have had a good summer, meeting Liberal Democrat members all over the UK in 15 Q&A sessions. It has been great to listen to your ideas, and a pleasure to answer questions face-to-face about the future of our Party and the country.

    The tour has also been a welcome opportunity to outline my plans to place the Liberal Democrats at the centre of UK political life: a credible, effective Party of national and local government, and a voice of sanity on Europe and the economy.
