    'Reasonable grounds' Stop and Search: under Section 1 of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 ("PACE") and associated legislation (such as the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971), officers can stop and search someone if they have "reasonable grounds" to suspect that the person has "prohibited articles" (usually offensive weapons), stolen property or controlled drugs.

    Let's be clear. As we move into the new decade, away from the roller coaster ride that was the 2010s, the Liberal Democrats need to change, and fast.

    Most polls are placing us at 6-8%. On a good day, we might cheer at a 1% increase in our polling.

    We're a bit like the board of trustees of an organisation, therefore, and Saturday's meeting will be our next quarterly review, where we review progress in the federal party over the second quarter of the year against our overall plan.

    There are hundreds of thousands of people in the UK who do not identify as exclusively male or female. Sadly - like other members of the LGBT+ community - far too many of them experience discrimination, harassment and hate crimes. Many avoid being open about their identity for fear of how others will treat them.

    We have all heard too many heart-breaking stories from those who have lost their livelihoods overnight as a result of the coronavirus crisis and are entirely excluded from the Government's financial support measures.

    It is simply unacceptable that many individuals are ineligible for every kind of support.

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."
