This Friday, 30 November, a group of pro-EU Warley residents will meet with our local MP, John Spellar, who is "undeclared" regarding the issue of Brexit and it will be interesting to hear his views, and let him understand how worried we are over our future relationship with the EU.
Sandwell Lib Dems cordially invite you to our Christmas get together.
It will be great to meet socially over some good food and a glass (or two) of something enlivening.
Some of us have been to the Old Dresser Café after doing a stint on the Brexitometer on Bearwood High Street and will be able to vouch for the quality of the food.
Over the last Bank Holiday weekend, some of us joined forces with EU in Walsall where we used a “Brexitometer” to gauge people’s opinion on Brexit. You can see from the photos below, that even in Walsall (68% voted Leave), people are thinking again about the future direction of the country.
We are going to carrying out a similar exercise in Bearwood on Saturday 8 September, as our part of the Liberal Democrat Weekend of Action, just before this year’s party conference.
Bryan Manley-Green will be contesting the ward of Old Warley in the upcoming Sandwell Council elections on May 3rd. Here, Bryan sets out some of the key issues on which he will be standing.
Responding to the news that “blue British” passports will be made in France, Bryan Manley-Green, Lib Dem PPC for Warley said:
“Of course it’s sad that jobs may be lost due to this decision, but they’re not the first and certainly won’t be the last to go due to the referendum result. Looking inwardly can have major implications for our exporters and create many invisible barriers to trade.
“We shouldn’t forget that we expect other countries to buy our goods and services and it has to be a two way street, even for passports, especially if we want a good trade deal. De La Rue make passports for around 40 countries, so losing those contracts would jeopardise far more jobs than those already on the line. Of course, we could impose a tariff if we leave the EU, this would simply mean us all paying more for a passport – and many other things – especially if a trade war breaks out post-Brexit.
Sandwell Lib Dems will be holding a 'Lib Dem Pint' and meet-up on Monday 5th March at Tividale Football Club .
The officers and new committee will be there to answer any questions about the local party for new and existing members, along with general party-related discussion, and anything else that may crop up.
