Nick in Brighton on Sunday

Local Liberal Democrats have been attending their Party’s Autumn Conference ‎in Brighton this week in the wake of a number of local government by-election victories across the country.

Policy discussions have centred on the party’s determination to give the country a further say on the terms of the proposed Brexit deal; as well as to oppose segregating children at age 11 and the return of secondary modern schools.
There has also been a push from leading Lib Dems in the South East to raise the plight of commuters suffering terribly at the hands of Southern Rail.
Speaking to the Observer on Monday, Hastings & Rye Liberal Democrat Chair Nick Perry said,
‘I have been very encouraged to attend this Conference with a number of our new members and with a growing realisation that there is a real and important job for us to do in the centre ground of politics. Particularly given what is happening in the other parties. The country absolutely needs a decent opposition to Mrs May’s government. Local Liberal Democrats are ready and willing to play their part.’
