There are 8 remaining Liberal Democrat MPs in Parliament following the General Election which saw a tidal wave moving against the party, these are listed below.

The first four of these (Mark Williams, Greg Mulholland, Tim Farron and John Pugh) are co-authors of the book, Liberal Democrats Do God, in which each talks about how their faith and their politics are connected.

A win for LDCF in the manifesto

content_Manifesto-Cover-2015_.jpg

This week the Liberal Democrats launched our 2015 manifesto. 

In the run up to the publication, LDCF have been calling for the manifesto to include the appointment of an Ambassador for Freedom of Religion or Belief.

This is in recognition of the fact that almost 75% of the world’s population live in countries with high levels of government restrictions on freedom of religion or belief - in many of these countries people are killed or tortured because of their faith.
