Burton & Uttoxeter Liberal Democrats

Adam Wain

Adam Wain, Our Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Burton & Uttoxeter

Adam was born in Burton hospital, grew up in the Burton area and has lived in Barton, Outwoods and Winshill. After University he moved a short distance into Derbyshire to be closer to work, where he remains to this day, but his roots remain in the Burton area and he feels privileged to be a candidate here and to have the chance to represent the people of Burton and Uttoxeter. He currently lives with his wife and their three children, two of whom are in the sixth form of their local state secondary school and the other attends a local sixth form college.

Adam works as an IT professional for a multinational company where he currently manages global software development for one of their divisions. In this role he works with people of many nationalities and appreciates the benefits of diversity and international collaboration. He understands the need to give our children a world class education, so our country continues to prosper in the global economy.

A passionate European, Adam campaigned hard for remain in the referendum. He believes the Conservative party will use Brexit to get rid of many of the workers' rights and environmental protections that we all take for granted in the EU. Their eagerness to sign a trade deal with the US also threatens the future of our cherished NHS and the quality and safety of our food. Adam fully supports the Liberal Democrats' policy on Brexit and the right of people to make the final decision on whether we remain or leave the EU.

Adam has been a committed liberal all his life. He believes that people should be free to live and express themselves as individuals without fear of discrimination, but that society also has a responsibility to promote fairness and to look after its most vulnerable members. He also recognises the climate crisis as the biggest threat to our continued wellbeing and fully supports the Liberal Democrats strong plans to put the UK at the forefront of global action.

Stop Brexit. Build a brighter future.

    Not good news for the Lib Dems nationally. Though the vote share rose from 7.4% to 11.5%, sadly the number of Lib Dem MPs fell by one, Jo Swinson's seat, compared to the situation after the 2017 election.

    But locally the outcome was better. In Tamworth our vote share slightly increased, and more than doubled in Burton and Lichfield. In the latter Paul Ray's vote share rose to 10.8%.

    Take a look at the Institute for Fiscal Studies Director Paul Johnson's comments on the three manifestos at

    https://www.ifs.org.uk/election/2019/manifestos

    He is highly critical of both the Conservative and Labour manifestos. Some telling excerpts:

    "The implication of the Conservative manifesto is that they believe most aspects of public policy are just fine as they are. Little in the way of changes to tax, spending, welfare or anything else. Yes, there are some spending increases for health and education already promised, but essentially nothing new in the manifesto.

    Labour, by contrast, want to change everything. Their vision is of a state with a far greater role than anything we have seen for more than 40 years. They would tax and spend more than ever before.................

    Brexit is making the staffing crisis at University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust even worse, the Liberal Democrats have warned.

    Figures published by the Liberal Democrats reveal that 44 EU staff working at our local trust have already left the health service this year including eight nurses and midwives.

    In the three years since the Brexit vote, 158 NHS staff from the EU have left the local trust.

    Staff departures from University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust are part of a worrying national trend: over 3,250 NHS staff from the EU have left the health service so far this year, including 1,116 nurses. The data, based on responses to Freedom of Information requests across 50 NHS hospital trusts, reveals that:

    Local air quality in East Staffordshire is still below international standards according to a major report just issued by ESBC. East Staffordshire Liberal Democrats want to up the Council's game responding to this pollution which is damaging public health. A replacement modern digital system of monitoring should be used to make real time checks to pollution levels at the times and locations where children and other pedestrians are crossing roads to go to school or work, and when children are in school playgrounds. The old style diffusion tube system relied on now only measures average pollution over 2-4 weeks, not the real time peak levels to which pedestrians are exposed.

    Things are moving on the regeneration of Burton town centre. Last Wednesday I attended a briefing on the plans to start by re-paving of Station Street, followed by the addition of trees and street furniture. After that, there will be a regeneration of the town centre and beyond, and it feels great that it's all starting to happen now
