Bishopsworth

Bishopsworth is a 2 member ward in Bristol South Parliamentary Constituency. The last election in Bishopsworth was in May 2016 where the candidates were Mary Sykes and Garath Owen. The Liberal Democrats received 5.86% of the vote and we want to increase this in the next election. The next election will be in May 2021.

BREAKING: Lab & Green Cllrs refuse referendum

Today Labour and Green councillors joined forces to save the Mayor from the people of Bristol. The Liberal Democrat motion, to give the people of Bristol a referendum on the Mayoral system that was voted on today lost by 11 votes, after Labour & Green councillors voted against it (with some Green councillors abstaining), meaning the motion didn't pass.

The Liberal Democrats have been listening to local people, whose frustration is clear with the Mayor, his failures, and the lack of accountability and democracy in the Mayoral system. 77% of the people of Bristol feel the elected Mayor isn't improving the leadership of the city, and we feel they deserve the chance to scrap the Mayor if they want to.

While we want to offer a special thanks to the two Labour rebels that broke the Labour whip to vote for democracy and their residents, we are disappointed that Green councillors chose to vote against or abstain on the motion, even though their national party policy is to scrap directly elected mayors.
