Miles Trent

Miles Trent candidate for the Lichfield City North division in the May 2021 Staffordshire County Council Election

Miles Trent has been an active and dedicated Councillor on Lichfield City Council for the last two years, working hard on local issues, and ensuring that the controlling Tory group is held to account for its decisions. Miles has lived in North Lichfield for the last 7 years. He works as a criminal lawyer for an independent public body which investigates alleged miscarriages of justice. Miles is passionate about preserving a strong, effective and efficient public sector. He would be an articulate and persuasive voice for local people at County Council level.

"I intend to speak up for Lichfield people at county level, ensuring that residents' views are taken seriously and acted upon, and building on our track record of year-round work as Lichfield city councillors. At this time of national crisis, it is more important than ever to hold the controlling Tory group to account for its decisions.

As a Lib Dem county councillor I would also promote positive ideas of fairness and equal opportunity, alongside a greener more sustainable future for the UK."

    A Tale of Two Countries

    New Zealand

    In mid February 3 people from the same family in Auckland developed Covid, probably from transmission at the airport. A small community outbreak followed. (One hopes it remains small; there has been no recent community transmission).

    Just days later the government of New Zealand set up the independent continuous review group having appreciated advice from previous groups earlier in the pandemic. The 5 person group will meet twice each month through till June 2022. The NZ Government says, "Independent reviews of our contact tracing systems and the implementation of our testing strategy provided useful advice and recommendations. Implementation of those recommendations has left us better protected and better prepared."
