    Lichfield District Council - Stowe Ward Results

    Well done Jeyan Anketell, agent Michael Pettingale and their small but hardworking team on achieving a 19% share of the voting. LD did not stand in this ward in 2015 or 2011 or indeed 2007 council elections. This was a determined effort with leaflet, canvassing and some good press/website for a ward with little LD campaigning history this century!

    Liberal Democrat Council candidate Jeyan Anketell has slammed the Conservative government and Conservative Staffordshire County Council for the catastrophic state of public services in Lichfield and Burntwood.

    He says;

    "There is a third by-election in Lichfield in Stowe on 22 February and I urge residents to vote Lib Dem. We have the policies to invest in our public services - and these are sensible and properly funded.

    Trump's decision to scrap US participation in the Iran nuclear deal is reckless and short-sighted.

    The deal is far from perfect, but it is better to work with our partners to make changes than to pull out altogether and risk heightened tensions in the Middle East.

    Trump's careless actions serve as another reminder of the enormous value of our EU partners.

    Thank you! Thank you for everything that gave us the best election night in some years.

    We took control of four councils: Richmond & Kingston in London, Three Rivers District in Hertfordshire, and South Cambridgeshire District.

    We also had a great increase in the net councillors across England, +75, just behind Labour on +79. The Tories had -33, with UKIP -123.
