GE2017: A voice for science and engineering

Scientific co-operation across Europe has helped all our lives, it’s helping us cure disease, expand the boundaries of our knowledge and increase our understanding of our home planet and beyond.

Brexit puts all that at risk

The Liberal Democrats are a pro-science party with evidence- based policies. They are the real opposition to the Conservative Brexit Government and the only party fighting for a Britain that is open, tolerant and united.
