    Dear Member,

    This is to let you know the details of our next AGM on Thursday 17th October 2019. The official notice with full details of where and when is available to members who click on this LINK.

    As always we welcome volunteers to the committee especially from the new members who've joined us during the latest LibDem surge.

We're a very welcoming group and even though the AGM has some formal stuff that has to be done, there will be time to meet and chat with fellow LibDems more informally.

  • Group of West Suffolk Liberal Democrats at the Pu It To The People March 23rd March 2019
    Article: Mar 24, 2019
    By John Derry

    Two double-decker buses left Bury St Edmunds terminus bound for the Put It To The People March in London on Saturday March 23rd. Aboard were a group of West Suffolk Liberal Democrats who were determined to make their voices heard and banners seen in the mass movement against the Brexit shambles. LibDem policy is to withdraw article 50 if there's no decision to extend the negotiations and no possibility of a further peoples vote on the deal. As they slowly moved from Hyde Park Corner to Parliament Square the crowd chanted for Mrs May to "give the people the final say" and some less flattering suggestions as to what the fate of Brexit should be! Many were also demanding Article 50 be revoked.

    Brexit petition crashes parliament.uk petition website

    The petition to revoke Article 50 really took off yesterday (Thursday) and reached 1,000,000 signatures - the fastest in history.

    https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/241584

    So many people wanted to sign that it crashed repeatedly as a result of so much traffic to the site. The petition, which was started a month ago, grew significantly overnight after Theresa May's widely-criticised speech on Downing Street.

    Revoke Article 50! Sign the petition now. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/241584
    It's already over 1.75 million and rising fast. West Suffolk signatories are down in the region of 1.28% of voters. Lets' push that figure up and send a clear message to Matt Hancock and Jo Churchill before the next "Meaningful Vote" on Tuesday. Our neighbours in South Cambridgeshire have reached over 4% and in Layla Moran's Oxford West and Abingdon well over 5% of the electorate have added their names.
