Vote Aglionby Lib Dem

Welcome to the website of Carlisle Liberal Democrats and our Parliamentary candidate Julia Aglionby, here to work for you and to offer solutions to the problems facing our city and our communities.

Julia is an experienced political peace-maker. She has an impressive track record reconciling polarised groups of farmers to secure livelihood-saving agreements, and getting cross-party agreement on political issues that matter to Cumbria. Her forthright honesty and integrity earn her respect with people whatever their views and interests, and allows her to seek out the effective 'middle ground' that everyone can agree on.

The Country's Best Interest

We face a parliament where the two major parties have extreme views-far more extreme views than the majority of people they claim to represent. We need people like Julia working in Parliament with politicians to find the middle ground, reach decisions and deliver actions that are in the United Kingdom's best interest.

General Election 2019 - How will it be remembered?

The United Kingdom is at a crossroads. How we got here is an important lesson when we look back on history. Right now, we needed our representative in Parliament to represent Country first. That means the people of Great Britain, together. We need people like Julia with integrity and skills that bring people together.

Vote for Julia Aglionby this Thursday to make this a point at which our futures improved.

Vote Aglionby LibDem this Thursday.

Climate Change causes Flooding

Events in South Yorkshire this week will have brought back bitter memories to many Carlisle residents. As in our own city, the floods this week were caused by intense rain falling on the saturated and impermeable ground in the wider river catchments. There is clear evidence that the high rainfall events experienced in South Yorkshire this week and in Cumbria in 2015 are a result of climate change.

Better, more affordable and greener transport for Carlisle

"As MP for Carlisle, I will work for better, affordable and greener public transport throughout Carlisle and to Newcastle and the West Coast." Carlisle is fortunate to have good rail links along the west coast mainline but our cross-country services to Newcastle and Leeds, and the coastal service, are not fit for purpose.

Democracy in Action

In 2016 there was a small majority for leave but no plan how to make that happen. 3.5 years later, there is no agreement on how that can be achieved which would secure our peace and prosperity. We have a stalemate between two options; Boris' Deal - a hard Brexit - or staying in the EU and reforming it from within.
