Grasping the Liberal moment – Brexit and beyond
Guest Speaker – Michael Meadowcroft
At the European Parliament elections the Liberal Democrats, for the first time in many decades, gained support on a long-established policy: support for British participation in a united Europe. We now have an immense opportunity, with both major parties in disarray, to build on that support. What are the other longstanding and uniquely Liberal policies for the country and for Yorkshire which can draw Liberal Democrat voters into being party activists?”
Michael Meadowcroft joined the Liberal Party in February 1958 . He has been an organiser and party officer at every level, and an elected Leeds City and West Yorkshire Metropolitan Councillor. He was the Liberal MP for Leeds West, 1983-87. He has written and lectured on Liberal history and Liberal philosophy.
