Your local party

Rugby Liberal Democrats represent the Liberal Democrats within the parliamentary constituency of Rugby & Bulkington, as well as on Rugby Borough Council and Warwickshire County Council.

We are a broad mix of people from the local community, but we all share a passion for making our local community a better place.

We currently have 9 Rugby Borough Councillors and 1 Warwickshire County Councillor within the constituency. We are working hard to increase this number further.

If you are like us and want to improve your local area, you are an ideal person to work with us delivering a few leaflets, taking part in action days or even to consider becoming a candidate to be a Councilor. For more information see talk to us.

What we stand for

LD History Pic"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."

Liberal Democrat Federal Constitution

"We will always be a proud Liberal party: Defending individuals. Nurturing community. Protecting civil liberties. Championing the environment. Patriotic. Internationalist. And yes, always pro-European."

Rt Hon Ed Davey MP, Leader of the Liberal Democrats 2020 -

"If you think that our country is headed in the wrong direction and you want to change that, you need to act too.

Shouting at the television is not enough. You need to join us.

If you want an economy that works for people and for our planet.

If you want to build a richer, greener and safer future.

If you want to keep our family of nations united."

Rt Hon Jo Swinson MP and leader of the Liberal Democrats 2019-2020

"People who say they don't know what we stand for, or that we are irrelevant. Anyone who doubts the relevance of the Liberal Democrats should reflect on the three great disasters perpetrated by the two main parties in recent years: the war in Iraq; the banking crisis; now Brexit."

Sir Vince Cable MP and leader of the Liberal Democrats 2017-2019

"We are the party that sees the best in people, not the worst. We are the party that believes that the role of government is to help us to be the best that we can be, no matter who we are or what our background.

"That's why we will stand up for the individual against the state. lt is why we will stand up for the minority against the majority. And it is why we will stand up for the outsider against the establishment. We will see people as individuals not as opposing tribes, lined up against each other across borders. We will favour cooperation over isolation. We will stand up against the abuse of power, for entrepreneurship and individual endeavour. And we will see immigration as a blessing not a curse and value the contribution every single individual has to make to this beautiful country of ours."

Tim Farron MP and leader of the Liberal Democrats 2015-2017
