People have moved from Labour, the Conservatives, Change UK and some people who have never been a member of a political party are joining us. They want to make a real difference and take a stand!

Polls suggest that we have secured one MEP in the South West. The same Polls say we need a few more votes to switch another seat from the Brexit Party to the LibDems. Remember that opinion polls are just that – expressions of opinion. If those who wish to Remain do not bother to vote, then the polls will not tell the correct story.

CLIMATE CHANGE - opinion piece by Gillian Calvin Thomas of the Swanage LibDems.
It is said that Nero fiddled whilst watching Rome burn. Have we been turning a blind eye as our planet begins to burn? Having seen the news of extreme weathers experienced by people across the world – yes, I believe we have. To limit global warming we will need a near total renewable power system by 2050 to limit global warming to 1.5C. That is just to limit it.
Your responses to NHS concerns were gather by a recent Knock and Drop leaflet survey
The LibDem Team spent time talking to residents of Swanage and asked them what their main issues were.
