    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.

    Welcome to the 'Twelve Lies of Brexit', where we will be unwrapping the biggest porkies told by senior Leave politicians.

    Let's start with the obvious:

    1. The lie on the side of a bus

    Perhaps the most famous of the Brexit lies, Boris Johnson championed an outlandish, fraudulent promise on the side of his Vote Leave bus in 2016.

    Today we stand together as a global community to mark World AIDS Day.

    AIDS is a global health challenge and there are currently more than 100,000 people living with HIV in the UK.

    As a nation, we have made great strides in minimising the physical, psychological and societal impact of HIV. And thanks to the hard work of researchers, our understanding of HIV has grown significantly.

    New analysis has revealed how much UK police rely on vital EU crime-fighting measures.
    Yet Boris Johnson's reckless Brexit plans threaten to cut the UK off.

    Over the past five years, UK police forces and prosecutors have used the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) to arrest over 6,600 criminal fugitives.

    Boris Johnson's interview with LBC exposed yet again how Boris Johnson can't be trusted and is simply not fit for the office of Prime Minister.

    Whether it was on nurses, hospitals or Brexit, Johnson spent an hour lying through his teeth. We've highlighted ten of his mistruths...

    1. 50,000 new nurses

    Johnson continues to peddle the Tory fantasy that they will recruit 50,000 new nurses. He clearly can't do basic maths when 19,000 of this figure is comprised by nurses who already work in the NHS.

    Too many people feel unsafe in their own homes and walking down their local streets. So many communities feel exposed and vulnerable.

    The Conservatives' cuts to police numbers have contributed to a rise in violence and decimated community policing. 47% of people say they never see police foot patrols, up from 30% in 2014-15.

Lewis North has been chosen to be your Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Meon Valley at the next election.
Having grown up here, gone to local schools, and worked in local businesses, Lewis knows how to not only protect our local area, but allow it to develop and flourish.

Lewis, who is 28 years old, grew up in Meon Valley, attended local schools, and has worked for local farms and businesses.
He has lived, worked and studied in Belgium, Germany, Canada and the UK. He now works as an environmental policy advisor for the Environment Agency.


Lewis says, "I love this area and I will fight to give local people the representation they deserve in parliament. For too long our constituency has been neglected by the Conservatives. We need a fresh start and a fresh local face to get things moving forward."
