Welcome to the website of Staffordshire Moorlands Liberal Democrats


Staffordshire Moorlands is the most northerly and most attractive constituency in the West Midlands. It is formed by the majority of wards of Staffordshire Moorlands District, as well as the Newchapel ward of Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough.

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.

    The Liberal Democrats have selected Cllr Sarah Dyke as their candidate for the Somerton and Frome constituency.

    Sarah lives in the constituency and is from a Somerset farming family which can be traced back over 250 years to the local area. Sarah worked in the agricultural industry and is Portfolio Holder for the Environment on South Somerset District Council where she is spearheading rewilding programmes, investment in electric vehicle charging points and the council's zero-carbon targets.

    Liberal Democrats won right across the country in May's local elections with successes from the Scottish Highlands to Somerset, from Kingston-Upon-Thames to Kingston-Upon-Hull, from Powys to St Albans.

    Liberal Democrats elected 868 Councillors, a net gain of 224!

    We are winning again because we are listening to people. Because we hear their concerns and their frustration. Because we are standing up for our values, standing up for our communities, and fighting for a fair deal.

    We're winning

    What an amazing outcome from this May's local elections:

    • Three more Liberal Democrat majority councils, taking us back to where we were before going into Coalition in 2010;
    • A net gain of 224 councillors, making this the fourth set of net gains in a row, something we've not achieved since the Iraq war;
    • 19% vote share (the national equivalent vote share, i.e. what it would have been if there were elections everywhere); and
    • The lovely bonus of seeing our sister party in Northern Ireland, Alliance, gaining seats and votes to move up to such an impressive third place.

    Thank you

    With nominations now closed for the May elections, many thanks to everyone who has put in so much work to getting candidates approved, selected and safely nominated. From a first look at the numbers, we've seen a good increase in our candidate totals in Scotland and Wales, with the numbers broadly the same in England compared with last time.

    We now have a criminal Prime Minister.

    Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak have both been fined for breaking Covid laws. Laws they wrote, and you followed.

    While we made countless sacrifices to protect each other, they were partying in Downing Street. They think they're above the law.

    Neither of them are fit to hold office. If Boris Johnson won't resign, Conservative MPs must sack the Prime Minister.

    Life's been tough for lots of people over the past few years. And it's still tough. But with their trademark decency and strength, the British people are rising to the challenge. Raising families. Caring for others. And playing by the rules.

    Now more than ever, it's time for a fair deal.

    Yet with the rising cost of living, this Conservative Government is letting you down badly and taking you for granted.

    Our focus this year has been squarely on understanding the party's overall political direction, our target voters, and the role our policies can play in helping us to persuade people and win votes. This was the main focus of our in-person awayday at LDHQ at the end of February, and has underlain all our other discussions, with the aim of informing both our current policy development work, and its direction for the future.

    The Spring statement was a Sunak Swindle - hiking up people's taxes today while promising to cut them in future.

    Rishi Sunak is following Boris Johnson's lead by not being up front and honest with the country.

    Buried in the small print is a tax bombshell that will see the average family paying £1,600 more in taxes over the coming years.
