    Liberal Democrats in Lichfield, Burton and Tamworth constituencies started the new year refreshed and determined to do better in future elections.

    A well attended and lively members and supporters meeting in February discussed the recent General Election - both national and our own local campaigns.

    The meeting was led by Lichfield Councillor and GE candidate Paul Ray and East Staffordshire (Burton) Councillor Helen Hall. All three constituencies had increased their share of the vote but there was much to learn for us all. Views on the national campaign were to be passed onto the National Party review panel set up to learn from the 2019 General Election and the months leading up to it.

    Phil Bennion

    Phillip Bennion was County Councillor for Lichfield Rural East from 2002-05 and Lichfield District Councillor for Mease and Tame from 1999-2011. A farmer from Haunton, Phillip also served as MEP for the West Midlands from 2012-2014. From his time as a County Councillor one can see that he has a record of achieving change : 1) Worked with pressure group Tamworth Northern Alliance to get development north of Tamworth kicked out on grounds of inadequate road infrastructure 2) Campaigned successfully to get the decking to increase capacity at Tamworth station car park. 3) Instigated the adoption by Lichfield District of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) to mitigate flooding. 4) Helped introduce Direct Payments for Social Care giving the rural elderly a better chance of independent living. 5) Gained an increased frequency of buses for Mease Valley 6) Attended all Parish Council meetings in the area on a regular basis. To keep people in touch with all this he delivered regular Focus leaflets.

    Compare all this with the record of the local Tories. Tory Control at all levels of Government is bad for us. It's time to hold them to account
