Welcome to Hounslow Liberal Democrats

Tom Brake

Want the inside track on the Brexit Deal? Want to know how the Brexit battle is shaping up in Parliament?

Come to Chiswick Town Hall on October 1st 2018 to hear Tom Brake MP, the Liberal Democrat spokesperson on Brexit, talk candidly about the Brexit Deal. Tom will be joined by Nacho Morais, Chair of West London for Europe, who will talk about campaigning in West London and the People's Votemarch scheduled for October 20th 2018, on a panel session followed by a Q&A. Given the 'Brexit Deal' - or worse a 'No Deal' - could reach Parliament in mid October, this event is perfectly timed for those concerned by Brexit to get a fresh insight into what is really happening.

Doors open 19.00. Panel Session starts circa 19.30.

RSVP

Entry is FREE, but if you can please make a donation towards the event costs.

£5 will help pay for the cost of the event. £10 would allow us to continue our campaigns against Brexit.

Donate on the night or in advance here: https://hounslowlibdems.org.uk/en/donate

We look forward to seeing you.

    The Prime Minister has spent 18 months putting together a compromise Brexit deal that doesn't deliver on what the Brexiteers promised and pleases no one.

    Theresa May is making a mess out of Brexit and her deal is a national humiliation.

    She doesn't have the support of her backbenchers, or of the DUP. Fifteen government ministers have now resigned over Brexit.

    On Tuesday night, thanks to Lib Dem MPs, the Government lost on a Finance Bill for the first time in 41 years. We won a vote on a cross-party amendment that demonstrates to the Government that a majority of MPs are opposed to no deal.

    It goes some way to taking no deal off the table, but it's crucial we remove it as an option full stop.

    We will not stand idly by while the Conservatives destroy our economy, our NHS, our peace and security.

    No deal Brexit could mean road closures and gridlock at Portsmouth International Port. Three times as many lorries could pass through, causing disruption and pollution.

    The Government is trying to force Theresa May's Brexit deal through Parliament - it's not working.

    This is yet another display of Government incompetence. It's taking a 'Dad's Army' approach to no deal preparations.

    Across the UK, we are asking teams to head out onto the doorsteps and campaign for a final say on the weekend of 12/13th January, just a few days before Parliament votes on Theresa May's disastrous deal.

    It is clear Brexit is a national embarrassment and the Conservatives are making an absolute mess of it.

    The past few years have seen the worst refugee crisis since the Second World war, as conflict in places like Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan and Eritrea have forced many thousands of refugees to flee for their lives.

    Just 239 of these refugees have attempted to cross the Channel and find refuge in Britain this winter.

    As we enter 2019, time is ticking down on Brexit, and with it the whole future of the country.

    The history books will look back on these coming three months as critical.
    It is almost unbelievable that Parliament is waiting a further week to return!

    After two long years of negotiation, the Prime Minister has brought back a Brexit deal that satisfies no-one. Her reaction is to try to scare people with the prospect of a 'No Deal' Brexit. In reality, that can't happen unless she decides it should.

    So the only way forward - now - for the country and the Prime Minister is for the public to have the final say, and the option to Remain.

    It's a campaign we Liberal Democrats started more than two years ago. Now millions of people have joined us in demanding a better future than Brexit Britain has to offer.

    And the power of the millions who have signed petitions, lobbied their MP, or marched on Parliament - 700,000 of them just this year - is beginning to bear fruit. A People's Vote has moved from being a possibility to being a probability.

    But only if we keep the pressure up. If we succeed, 2019 will be a year remembered not because we harmed our country with Brexit, but because we - the people - stood up and stopped it.

    And if we do that, our Parliament and Government can once again deal with big issues like climate change, rising crime, the social care crisis, homelessness and housing supply, all of which have been neglected because of Brexit.

    Enjoy your New Year celebrations and then let's get out there in 2019 and win the fight for a People's Vote and a brighter future for Britain.

    We've passed an amendment in the Lords so that people in care are only deprived of their liberty when it is necessary to prevent them from harm.

    People in care deserve their freedom too. That's why we've ensured that their freedom is only restricted when they're at risk to themselves.

    Vulnerable people deserve protection - and the government has a duty to protect them.

    This Christmas, I have worked with St Giles Trust to learn more about the gang culture which is fuelling knife crime and tragically costing young people their lives. St Giles works directly with those affected, providing education, mentoring and support to fill the void into which gangs otherwise slip.

    In the film, I discuss the causes of knife crime with Liam, a St Giles Project Co-ordinator. And we hear the incredibly brave voice of Sophie Kafeero whose own son, Derick, was killed last year - now she is campaigning with her local MP, Ed Davey, to take knives off the street.

    As we sit down to our Christmas festivities, I hope the film helps to remind us of those who have lost someone; who have an empty chair at their Christmas table. And helping charities like St Giles is one way we can make a difference.
