The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.

We champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals, we acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents to the full. We aim to disperse power, to foster diversity and to nurture creativity.

We believe that the role of the state is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions which affect their lives.

We believe the UK is better off in the EU, and we will fight the next election on a clear and unequivocal promise to restore British prosperity and role in the world, with the United Kingdom in the European Union, not out.

If you agree with us, why not join us today.

      "Johnson's Brexit lies have caused huge damage to our public services already."

      Boris's lie on the side of a bus was an even bigger whopper than we thought. Not only does Brexit not mean an extra £350 million a week for the NHS...

      In reality, it means £350 million a week less.

      And that's before we've even left.

      The economy usually features heavily in election discourse.

      But this time the two main parties have opted for silly economics instead. It's either pursuing a Brexit that we know will damage the economy or a reckless spending plan we can't afford.

      But you can't fool business. Over 60 business leaders have named us as the 'only party who have set out a credible plan for future prosperity'.

      "Almost the only people who think Johnson a nice guy are those who do not know him."

      It's a statement made by Max Hastings, Johnson's former boss at the Telegraph. He's not the only person who has worked with Boris Johnson who has gone public with their criticisms.

      Here's a collection of quotes from his Conservative colleagues:

      This Thursday marks one of the most important elections in a generation. If Boris Johnson wins a majority, he will push through his disastrous Brexit plan. He will also plunge us headfirst into some of the most extreme economic policies in decades.

      This won't just ruin Christmas, like forgetting the stuffing or not taking your stockings down before lighting the fire. It will be disastrous for our country for decades to come.

      "We are the only party standing up for Remainers."

      Every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to stop Boris and stop Brexit.

      The more Liberal Democrat MPs we have in Parliament, the stronger our hand will be in stopping Johnson's catastrophic Brexit plans. We have legislation ready to go to secure a People's Vote with the option to stay in the EU.

      Each of them are driving populist, nationalist and authoritarian values. It's no surprise that Boris Johnson, Nigel Farage and Donald Trump have such a special relationship.

      Their unholy alliance has the potential to risk Britain's future. With the three of them working together to stitch up of our democracy, it's important that we stop Boris in his attempt to creep back into No. 10.

      What a year we've had!

      2019 has been a record year for membership. People from all parties and none have joined our campaign to stop Brexit.

      We deserve better than two old parties who take our country for granted.

      We won the Brecon and Radnorshire Parliamentary by-election in the summer, cutting Boris Johnson's majority.

      Our country and our businesses deserve better than a choice between a hard Brexit under Johnson or the hard left under Corbyn.

      Both parties would damage businesses through their plans to end free movement and deprive our fast-growing businesses of the talent they need to compete globally.

      The Liberal Democrats are the natural party of business, with a clear plan to stop Brexit, save free movement and focus on addressing the real issues facing our economy.

      We will build a brighter future by securing the UK's place as a global research powerhouse, supporting our entrepreneurs, and creating good jobs in new and growing industries.

      If you weren't already convinced, here are just a few things Johnson would do to Britain if he manages to stay in No. 10 and why we must stop him.
