Harrow Liberal Democrats are hugely concerned by the election of Donald Trump, as his campaign did not follow our values of working towards an open, tolerant and united society. We believe in a Britain and a world where everyone is valued and respected, rather than feeling scared and victimised, which is the unfortunate effect that Trump's campaign and election have had on too many people.
We would echo the words of Tim Farron in saying: "Liberal values of moderation, freedom, respect for the rule of law, openness and concern for one another can no longer be taken for granted. In the United States, those values were defeated. Never in my lifetime have those liberal values been so under threat, and never have they been more relevant and necessary. "
We will be doing everything we can to continue to promote our values in Harrow and abroad.
