Liberal Democrats

After a disappointing show in the general election and with an experienced new leader determined to reverse the Party’s fortunes, the Lib Dems will be looking to 2017’s conference as a chance to turn themselves around and re-establish themselves as a stalwart parliamentary party of the British centre ground. With a Labour Party that now looks solidly committed to its leftward turn and a Conservative Party committed to hard Brexit, there is ample opportunity for the Liberal Democrats – under new leadership - to regain their influence and reposition themselves as pragmatic, competent kingmakers.
