  • Peter Jones at Hyde Heath Fete, 13 May 2017

    Peter Jones, Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Chesham and Amersham visited the Hyde Heath village fete on Saturday 13th May. Together with his wife Katy, Peter met local business and community leaders.

    Peter was keen to highlight that his campaign is against the government which has been cutting services heavily and will take us towards a hard Brexit unless kept in check by a strong opposition. In the Chilterns the only real opposition are the Lib Dems, as evident from the recent county council elections.

    The Liberal Democrats are once again the only real challengers to the local Conservative hegemony after the recent elections to Buckinghamshire County Council. Liberal Democrats were the closest challengers to the Tories in eight of the nine seats in Chiltern District. The Liberal Democrats won more votes than Labour, UKIP and Green combined.
    Local district councillor and parliamentary candidate Peter Jones added ""For anyone wondering which other party is best placed to defeat the government in the general election, the answer is clear. Once again it is the Liberal Democrats that are the only real opposition. None of Labour, Green or UKIP can win here."
    "Labour's share of the vote went down, from 9.9% four years ago to 9.5%. UKIP's vote has collapsed, there is no longer any decent reason to vote UKIP. And as for the Greens, just 2.9% of the total vote is not going to improve. I urge all voters that are opposed to the government to unite behind the Liberal Democrats to send a message to the government".

    Conservative-led Bucks County Council operates a broken tendering system that must be fixed, to cut costs and not services.

    The Liberal Democrats are in favour of using the private sector and subcontracting where it works well for the public purse, while for the Conservative government, it is a political dogma regardless. Unfortunately, Conservative councillors have to toe the line, ending up cutting services and not cost.

    The Government's drive for a 'Hard Brexit' is likely to be the major issue of the General Election.

    The Liberal Democrats remain a proudly pro-European party. Following the referendum, we are setting out clear answers to some of the big questions and what we think should happen next.
