This election is a once in a generation opportunity to reshape our politics, and give hope to the millions of people who want a fairer, brighter future.
That's why, today, we have launched our campaign slogan: Stop Brexit. Build a brighter future.
Our children are not getting the education they deserve.
The Conservatives are cutting school funding to the bone, failing our children. Schools are struggling to afford basic supplies and teachers are being put under impossible pressure.
The Liberal Democrats will build a brighter future for our children. We will give teachers the resources they need to teach and pupils need to learn.
There is an awful lot of fake news and fake indignation coming out of Labour Party central office at the moment about our alleged position over the #NHS. Here's what we REALLY want for the future of our National Health Service.
Local campaigner Jon Nicholas will challenge Conor Burns in the next general election.
Jon first moved to Bournemouth over 30 years ago, and since then his work has taken him all over the world. He is now living in Bournemouth with his family and works in conflict resolution and development projects focused on reducing extremism, visiting communities across the UK.
This weekend (27th - 29th September) Bournemouth Liberal Democrats will be finalising the selection of our two parliamentary candidates for the general election which can now only be weeks away.
Party members in Bournemouth West and Bournemouth East have been invited to constituency meetings to quiz their parliamentary hopefuls and to find out more about the campaign that lies ahead.
We will be announcing our succesful candidates as soon as their selection and approval has been confirmed.
Tories don't understand the urgency of the school funding crisis.
Responding to this evening’s announcement on schools funding by Boris Johnson, Liberal Democrat Shadow Education Secretary Layla Moran MP said:
“The Tories don't understand the urgency of the school funding crisis. All credit to the parents and teachers who took to the streets to make the Government do its homework on schools funding. But as schools must wait until 2020 to see any new cash, it doesn’t get full marks.
Like millions of people right across the United Kingdom, we at Bournemouth Liberal Democrats are outraged at Boris Johnson's move to prorogue Parliament. We will be joining forces with Dorset for Europe and campaigners from other political parties to make our views known this Saturday, 31st August at 11am in Bournemouth Square.

Responding to Boris Johnson’s announcement that he will ask the Migration Advisory Committee to review “an Australian-style points based system” for immigration, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs Spokesperson Ed Davey said:
“The likes of Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage like to talk about an ‘Australian-style’ immigration system because it sounds tough. But as with most things Johnson says, it’s actually completely meaningless.
Bournemouth Liberal Democrats are delighted to congratulate Jo Swinson on becoming the new leader of the Liberal Democrats.
