Welcome to the Swindon Liberal Democrats

Our 2019 local manifesto for Swindon.

  • South West Lib Dem campaign launch
    Article: May 7, 2019

    Speaking at the Liberal Democrats South West of England European Campaign launch in Bristol today (Tuesday May 7 2019), Liberal Democrat European Parliamentary spokesperson, Wera Hobhouse MP for Bath said:

    "Vote Liberal Democrat: Stop Brexit. That's the clear message of the Lib Dem European election campaign in the South West and across the country. Looking at Thursday's amazing local council election results, that's clearly what many South West voters want. They know Brexit is a national embarrassment and an economic, social and environmental disaster.

    I have lived all my life in the centre of Swindon serving as a councillor for the past 34 years. The success of our town is down to its wonderful position making it a great place for both business and people. Alas what has happened in recent years has been the failure by successive Council administrations to understand the importance of a thriving, cultural and welcoming town centre. Instead we have witnessed the donut effect where new shopping centres and investment out of town have became a policy leaving a hole in the centre where lack of investment, decay of our heritage matched by increasing empty shops have become the norm. This has to stop. All our neighbouring authorities have shown the way from Bristol, Reading, Bath, Cheltenham and Gloucester by removing politics, working together with an agreed plan supported by their residents.

    A Message from our Jamie Taylor our candidate for Wroughton and Wichelstowe following the backing of Rod Bluh:

    Hello, I'm Jamie Taylor I grew up and went to school in Wroughton.

    I share the Lib Dems commitment to listening to residents, working together to find practical solutions and being positive force for our village.

    I hate that current politicians put party before country and just shout abuse at each other. There is too much of that nationally right now and it is also going on locally.

    Sadly this is something we have even seen in our village with our MP Robert Buckland not backing the Wroughton Neighbourhood Plan. Which was given the go ahead by 87% in a referendum in 2016, but sadly Robert and the Conservatives party have not respected the will of the people.

    I will work pragmatic with anyone who has the desire to improve our community and does the best for our village. I will ensure that I don't judge someone by the colour of their rosette but instead by the content of their character.

    With this I am proud to have the following endorsement from Rod Bluh, leader of Swindon Borough Council from 2006 - 2013:

    "I have known Jamie Taylor for many years since he was a teenager. He grew up in Wroughton and is now committed to serving the local community. His interest in and commitment to public service is rare in one so young. I have no hesitation in asking you to support Jamie on the 2nd of May. I think he will make an excellent Councillor."

    If you vote Lib Dem this time in Wroughton you will get me, a local person raised and educated here. A person who is proud of our village and will fight to keep it a village and stop us from being swallowed by Swindon.

    You will also have a councillor who will work, listen to you and make sure your concerns are heard and acted on where it counts.

    Standing for election to Swindon Borough Council on May 2nd, 2019.

    Jamie Taylor - Wroughton

    I am thoroughly excited to get the opportunity to stand for council for our village, my family moving here when I was 5. I was lucky enough to go to Wroughton Infant's, Junior's and Ridgeway Secondary School.

  • Queen's Park in Swindon
    Article: Apr 16, 2019

    Recent news that the South Swindon Parish officers are looking at the policy of saving money by keeping Queen's Park and Town Gardens open 24 hours have met with complete opposition by your Parish councillors Toby Robson and Stan Pajak.

    Stan who is also the chair of the Queen's Park community council says "This would be crazy and open up the parks to all sorts of abuse and vandalism not to mention the danger of people staggering home at night through Queen's Park and falling in the lake. Both parks are special to the people of Swindon as green escapes and part of our heritage opening through them through the night cannot be allowed to happen."
