The Romsey and Southampton North Constituency stretches from Stockbridge in the north to Bassett and Swaything in the South. The principal settlement is Romsey, but also includes North Baddesley, Valley Park, Wellow, Somborne, and many more rural villages. (NOTE: The Boundary Commission have proposed changes to the constituency boundary that will take effect for the 202o general election)
The constituency has about 67,000 registered voters. The current Member of Parliament is Caroline Nokes (Conservative).
The last Liberal Democrat MP was Sandra Gidley (until 2010).
Local Liberal Democrats work hard for the community, and to the goal of electing a Liberal Democrat MP in the future.
This is really the only way of having power at Wesminster to change the way the UK is run: our MP again!
For those people who don't know it, here is part of the preamble to the Liberal Democrat's constitution.
"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.
We champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals, we acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents to the full. We aim to disperse power, to foster diversity and to nurture creativity. We believe that the role of the state is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions which affect their lives.
We look forward to a world in which all people share the same basic rights, in which they live together in peace and in which their different cultures will be able to develop freely. We believe that each generation is responsible for the fate of our planet and, by safeguarding the balance of nature and the environment, for the long term continuity of life in all its forms.
Upholding these values of individual and social justice, we reject all prejudice and discrimination based upon race, colour, religion, age, disability, sex or sexual orientation and oppose all forms of entrenched privilege and inequality"
If that statement describes your own beliefs, if you feel uneaasy about an increasingly intolerant world, if you have the inclination and energy to do something about it, why not sign up and join us?
