Our Manifesto

  • We need affordable housing close to public transport and amenities - we do not need large executive houses built on greenbelt land.
  • We need to encourage small retailers into the town centre - and deliver a credible plan for the towns market.
  • We will use the increase in your council tax to put 32 extra bobbies on the beat.
  • We will reintroduce free bulky waste collections to tackle fly tipping at source.
  • We will protect publicly funded local bus services - particularly in rural areas - and work with GMPTE to get additional trams and trains at peak times.
  • We will prioritise funding for youth services so that every young person in Rochdale can truly achieve their potential.

With your support, we can revitalise Rochdale.

    As I write this on Friday, I am about to set off for Brecon and Radnorshire, to help the brilliant Jane Dodds campaign in the by-election. It will be my third visit since the Recall petition first started. Make no bones about it, Jane is a brilliant candidate and our team there is outstanding, but we need more people to help over the next few weeks: we have a tough fight on our hands in a very rural seat. We need more people to help deliver leaflets, knock on doors and help with clerical work. Please, please, come and help. Postal votes land on doorsteps, and we need to call on postal voters this coming weekend, before many voters go on holiday.

    After a time-warp 6 week campaign, an 18 hour polling day marathon and an incredible win on 26 May, the sixteen of us went to Brussels in June to take up our new positions as MEPs. You might have heard about the furore we caused!

    I'm Benny, and I've been a Liberal Democrat since 2017 - but I never really had a chance to get particularly involved.

    That changed last week when I headed up to Brecon.

    I knew how important this by-election is going in - we can't afford to take it for granted. It's essential as many Liberal Democrats as possible head to Brecon and Radnorshire to support our candidate, Jane Dodds.

    In a time of political crisis, we have some good news, and an invitation to demand democracy.

    I want Proportional Representation

    We have signed the Good Systems Agreement, alongside other parties, organisations and public figures.

    Together we have achieved something that has never been done in the UK. We're securing broad consensus about the principles that define good voting systems. Most importantly, seats won in Parliament must closely reflect the votes cast. We have also agreed that the best voting system for the UK would ideally be determined by citizens. This could be done through an evidence-based, deliberative process, like a citizens' assembly.

    Here's the most important question in this leadership election; If Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn go head to head as the leaders of the Tories and Labour, both supporting Brexit, who should we choose who will stand out as the real alternative?

    For me, that leader is Jo Swinson.

    Let me tell you why.

    As our party's Brexit spokesperson, I've seen the reports; medicine shortages, small businesses crushed, our security at risk.
