March 18th: the London Conference is a must!

The place for all London Liberal Democrats to be on the evening of March 18th is at the Polish Centre in King Street, Hammersmith! All party members are welcome to be a part of determining – and helping us take forward – what the Liberal Democrats will be doing throughout London over the coming months. With a General Election, Local Elections and European Elections all within the next year and a half there is a lot at stake for us – and for all Londoners too!

Our keynote conference speakers will include leading Liberal Democrats in London: Vince Cable MP, President of the Liberal Democrats Ros Scott, Sarah Ludford MEP and other London Euro Election candidates. So we will be talking about the economy, the party, Europe and a lot more….. Also, we are hoping to have a distinguished speaker from France, the Leader of our French sister party the Movement Democratic (Mo Dem) Monsieur François Beyrou. M. Beyrou stood in the French presidential election in 2008. We are awaiting his confirmation….

I hope that the conference will be inspiring, informative, highly participative, a good networking opportunity and an enjoyable evening out for all who attend. So I look forward to meeting you on the 18th!

Conference details are: the fringe programme starts at 3pm and the main conference starts at 6.20pm and finishes at 9.30pm. There will be drinks in the bar afterwards. Details also on Flock Together where you can offer / request lifts.

To reserve your tickets contact Flick Rea on [email protected] or telephone 020 7222 0134.

Jeremy Ambache is London Conference Chair. Lib Dem Voice welcomes submissions from any regional or state party wishing to advertise its conferences.

  • Beyrou would be a very interesting speaker if you get him. But why run an event from 3pm on a weekday?

  • Yes, not a good time for those of us at work…

    Press Release from : Liberal Democrat Friends of Poland, 9/03/09

    Event: a Launch Event (preceding the 2009 Liberal Democrat London

    Spring Conference)

    Date /Time: Wed March 18 3pm-5.15 pm (Conference 6- 9.30pm )

    Venue: POSK, King St Hammersmith (tube: Ravenscourt Park)

    London’s Liberal Democrats invite you to their first Friends of Poland Launch Event at Posk, Hammersmith, on Wednesday March 18th.

    First on the bill will be a session entitled “Poles, get involved.”. This will concentrate NOT on Party Politics, but on the many ways that Poles can get involved in and influence UK society, and the benefits that this can bring to the Polish community and the way it is viewed here.

    You will hear from people who have already done this in a number of ways, and this non-political opening session will be chaired by one of them, Dr Jan Mokrzycki, President of the UK’s Polish Federation

    Among later speakers will be the Mayor of Islington, Stefan Kasprczyk, the UK’s first Polish mayor, (see picture attached to this release).

    Stefan ,who is heavily engaged in fund raising for his Mayoral Charity, Islington Kids Afloat, said this week: “Poles who come to Britain have chosen to make the idea of a Europe open to all its citizens a reality, by living and working away from home. They deserve a voice in Brussels which promotes their aspirations by establishing a fair labour market.”

    “The Liberal Democrats are the only party who have consistently supported these aims, and who remain fully committed to the European ideal; so we are the natural choice for those seeking to build a better life for us all in a true European Community.”

    The programme will also include a talk from Liberal Democrat Euro-Candidate Dinti Batstone , (picture attached) who has just been interviewed on Radio Orla: you can tune into that on

    Dinti said this week: “The EU gives all European citizens political rights as well as economic ones. As an Italian citizen who has for many years benefited from EU freedom of movement, I want to encourage all London’s Europeans to make their voices heard on 4th June – it’s your London, your Europe, your vote!”.

    Those who are interested will also be able to take part (for half price, £5) in the London Region Liberal Democrat Spring Conference, which will be held at POSK immediately after the Friends of Poland launch. One of its star features will be a talk by Vince Cable MP, the Liberal Democrats’ Economic spokesman, whose analysis of the economic crisis has won international acclaim.

    PRESS RELEASE ENDS. For more information contact Councillor John Oakes, Community Involvement spokesman, Haringey Council, on 07973 223150
