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.

    Owen Patterson has resigned in a cloud of Tory sleaze. He's handed us a golden opportunity to send a message to this Conservative government - but we need to grab it now.

    The Lib Dems are in the best possible position to compete with the Tories. We are the clear alternative to the Tory vote.

    This by-election is a chance to embarrass the Tories in what was one of their safest seats.

    The 2019 General Election Review (the Thornhill Review) set out how we must change in order to succeed at future elections. Since its publication, in many areas we have made strides, but there is still much to do.

    Conservative MPs just voted to prevent Owen Paterson from being suspended despite abusing his position.

    It's clear that Boris Johnson believes that he and his colleagues shouldn't have to face the consequences of their actions. His Government has laid the groundwork for a crony committee of Conservatives to protect each other from the consequences of sleaze.

    We're calling out Conservative MPs that voted in favour of dumping sewage into rivers.

    Rivers should be safe for swimming, fishing and sustaining wildlife. They are a precious source of drinking water for some. So why are they filled with raw sewage and human waste, destroying them for decades to come?
