Our Values

Hounslow Borough Elections Manifesto 2014 cover

"The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no-one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity. We champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals …We believe that the role of the state is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions which affect their lives…We believe that each generation is responsible for the fate of our planet and, by safeguarding the balance of nature and the environment, for the long term continuity of life in all its forms."

Full preamble to the party's constitution

LOCAL: London Borough of Hounslow



European Union and our international approach

The Liberal Democrats pride ourselves on being Britain's most internationalist party. We are committed to the preservation and promotion of Britain's place in Europe and the wider world. Through the work of our active International Office, we are active at European level and beyond and we strive to cultivate strong and supportive relationships with our sister liberal parties around the world.
