Where We Stand

Where We Stand, and Why We are Needed

The Liberal Party first came together as a nationally organised and constituted political party in 1877, although in practical (but rather disorganised) terms it had been in existence long before then. It has its origins in the Whig Party and can thus trace its origins back to the seventeenth century.

The Liberal Party was frequently the principle party of Government in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These governments were radical, reformist and far sighted, they backed the masses against the classes, swept away vested interest and privilege, and secured increased rights and freedoms for the people.

Policies

Liberal Party policy is agreed on by party members at the annual assembly. The statements included here contain the Liberal Party’s agreed policy on a wide range of issues, from indlvidual freedom to taxation, health and the environment.

Views of a YLC

When will politicians learn? Politicians ‘promise the earth’ and then do not even attempt to deliver. Most politicians try to say what the public want to hear. Thus they all become the same. The logic of these two approaches is “there is no point in voting”. Let me lay out some Liberal ideas. You judge if they are different.

Charles Bradlaugh

Charles Bradlaugh was a leading classical Liberal, atheist and republican, opposed socialism and Marx, and promoted universal suffrage, trade unionism and campaigned for birth control and family planning. He was a controversial figure, but the electors of Northampton supported him with great enthusiasm.

COP26 - Global emissions

The Liberal Party welcomes the final agreement of the COP26 summit in Glasgow but notes that it has failed to deliver the immediate cuts to global emissions need to prevent global temperature change of more than 1.5C.

Whilst we support steps to reduce the use of coal as a fuel, the trajectory of climate change without further reductions in greenhouse gas emissions still leaves the world facing a bleak future along with many coastal and island states.

The Liberal Party fully recognises that governments in the developed world have pressing economic and social commitments during the current Covid pandemic, but they must double their efforts to promote green technology at home and assist developing countries to do likewise.

To this end the failure of the developed world to deliver on promises of financial aid to vulnerable countries is a gross economic injustice.

When the world convenes for COP27 in Egypt in one years’ time efforts to tackle climate change will necessitate further steep cuts in global emissions to stay on track for a sustainable and inhabitable planet.
