    Tamworth Tories take Town for a ride as it is announced The Hole in our Town Centre off Gungate is up for sale.

    Despite working with the developer "closely" for over 8 years, the developers have thrown in the towel and decided to sell. Tamworth Tories should immediately designate land for social housing and stop the developer profiting. How much have they ripped us all off for parking in the last 8 years let alone "land banking".

  • Paul Ray - 2015 Election
    Article: May 3, 2019

    Congratulations to Paul Ray and Helen for their re-election in Lichfield district council and East Staffordshire borough council elections.

    Across the patch thanks to our other candidates, no fewer than 27 of them, for their courage and hard work, in a number of cases getting very close to election in seats long held by other parties. Miles Trent was especially unfortunate to miss out on winning a district council seat by just 7 votes!

    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.

    Quoted in Lichfield Live, Paul Ray, who is standing in Chadsmead Ward in the Lichfiled District Council Election on Thursday, said that a vote for the Liberal Democrats is a way to stand up for "disgracefully underfunded" public services.

    He said the Conservatives had shown they were not capable of creating a system that protects key services.

    London is a liberal city. Over 250 languages are spoken in the capital, making it the most linguistically diverse city in the world. As host to one of the largest Pride events in Europe and the biggest carnival outside Rio, London and its residents celebrate diversity and embrace difference.

    London is also a Remain city. It is home to a third of all the EU citizens living in the UK and every sector in the capital - from hoteliers to health-workers, builders to bankers - relies on EU migrants to thrive.

    Congratulations to Jane Dodds and the Welsh Lib Dems for the brilliant result in Brecon and Radnorshire! Thank you to everyone of you who helped, both by appearing in the constituency to knock on doors and deliver leaflets, and for those who phoned, helped with admin tasks from a distance too. Jane is already showing that she will be an exceptional MP, joining Jo Swinson's parliamentary party.

    There are plenty of similarities between Boris Johnson and Donald Trump. They say imitation is the highest form of flattery - maybe it's Johnson's way of sucking up for that trade deal. Which probably makes him the only person in the country looking forward to chlorinated chicken.

    In fact, in a speech a while, Trump said "they call [Johnson] Britain Trump and people are saying that's a good thing. They like me over there."*

    People are fed up of seeing politicians arguing for things that put their party's interest above the country. We have to come together to prevent Boris Johnson crashing us out the EU without a deal. I'm proud of the work that the Liberal Democrats have done with MPs from all parties and none to make stopping Brexit a real possibility.

    Coming straight off the back of the Brecon and Radnorshire campaign, we launched our election campaign for Sheffield Hallam at the weekend, with more than 100 people who joined us to knock on doors, deliver leaflets, and help with clerical work in the office.

    It seems like promising Lib Dem by-elections are like buses - you wait for a long time and then two come along at once!

    In just eleven weeks, however, our country faces an immediate crisis: crashing out of the EU without any deal. The most cavalier and catastrophic of Brexits: putting at risk hundreds of thousands of jobs , public services including our NHS , and even our national security.

    So in this moment of national emergency, I stand ready to work with anyone to stop Boris Johnson and his hard-line Brexit government.
