    Exeter Liberal Democrats are fielding 13 candidates in 12 wards this year to increase our representation on Exeter City Council.

    Priory ward has two vacancies due the resignation of a Labour Councillor

    After internal discussions, we decided not to stand this year in Newtown and St Leonards. Local resident Jemima Moore is standing as an independent in the ward in response to the closure of the Clifton Hill Leisure Centre and selling off green spaces. Jemima said: "I am incredibly thankful to Kevin Mitchell, Vanessa Newcombe and all Exeter Liberal Democrats (especially Sandy Chenore) who have supported our work in protecting Clifton Hill throughout and have made the honorable decision to back my campaign by not standing a candidate in Newtown and St Leonard's." We recommend Liberal Democrat supporters vote on this occasion for Jemima Moore https://www.facebook.com/JemimaMooreECCIndependent

    I'd like to wish all of our Sikh members, supporters and candidates a Happy Vaisakhi.

    I know that today is a very special day for you as you celebrate not only the year that Sikhism was born as a collective faith, the anniversary of the founding of the Khalsa (the collective name given to Sikhs who've been baptised), but also the start of the Sikh New Year.

    We're now fighting TWO elections. Together, we're going to deliver the best results in both elections that we've had in years!
    On 2nd May we need to gain more councils and councillors across England. On 23rd May, we want to elect a Liberal Democrat MEP in every part of the country.

    Our local election campaign is well underway. But we've got a lot to do to ensure our European Election campaign gets off to a flying start too.

    The time he campaigned for Roy Moore in Alabama. When nine women had come forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct.

    Fortunately, Moore lost the seat to Democrat challenger Doug Jones. Which is good, because much like Farage himself, Moore's kind of the worst.

    Brexit latest

    Brexit is still paralysing government and parliament. But I think a significant corner has been turned with the decision of the European Council to extend the timetable for Brexit until Halloween on Oct 31st.

    The sense of drama and crisis has abated somewhat, now that Brexit Day is no longer imminent.

    It's our job to win big for fellow Remainers across the country in these European elections.

    Last night Theresa May met with EU leaders and, in a dashing blow to her plans, was forced to agree to extend Article 50 to October 31st, with the ability to review at the end of June.

    She's still doing the hokey-cokey and dancing around the issue but as a result, it's clear European elections are incredibly likely this Spring.

    These past few months have been nothing short of a national humiliation.

    For nearly 3 years, the government has used a wafer thin referendum majority to sow division in our towns, our cities and even in our families.

    But those who seek to divide us will never win. We demand better than Brexit.

    Labour and the Conservatives are fighting amongst themselves, and they have taken their eye off the ball when it comes to local services.

    Vince Cable kickstarted our local election campaign today in Yeovil.

    And what a place to get the ball rolling.

    After the last lot of elections in 2015, the Liberal Democrat group was the largest on South Somerset District Council.

    South Somerset is just one of many councils up for election this year which last elected councillors in 2015.

    Last night, the People's Vote option got more support from MPs than any other option.

    When MPs get the chance to vote on it again, I want to make sure it passes with a majority.

    We've asked you to help us by contacting MPs to persuade them to back a People's Vote in the past.

    You responded in your thousands.
