News from the local Liberal Democrats

    Article: May 2, 2020

    The UK government has a majority of 80 seats, but it is a popular misconception that this reflects the wishes of majority of the nation. In fact the majority did not vote Conservative in December 2019.

    The grotesque results of the "first past the post" (FPTP) system meant that they gained an extra 48 seats on a 1.3% increase in vote share. As revealed by the Electoral Reform Society's Report ("Voters Left Voiceless") published in March 2020, over 22 million votes (70.8%) were ignored because they went to non-elected candidates or were surplus to what the elected candidate needed.

    Article: May 1, 2020

    Mark Titterington, the former Conservative Councillor for the Holmer Green area has joined the Liberal Democrats.

    In a message, he wrote:

    "We are living in a time of profound social, economic, and environmental change which is impacting upon the lives of everyone. To have embarked therefore on the folly of Brexit in such times, and without anywhere near enough preparation in the run up to and following the 2016 referendum, was reckless in the extreme. The fact that this was done to solve a mainly internal problem in the Conservative party was doubly irresponsible.

  • No HS2
    Article: Apr 15, 2020

    On 15 April the Government gave formal approval for construction work on the HS2 rail project to begin despite the current "lockdown". Boris Johnson approved the decision to build the rail link back in February after a report into its cost, notwithstanding that the report noted that it is massively over budget, estimated to exceed a cost of £100 billion and will be up to 5 years behind schedule. What we did not know in February, but is patently obvious now, is that the country will be burdened with extraordinary debt as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown.

    Article: Mar 8, 2020

    Every year on 8 March - International Women's Day - people around the world mark this occasion in a wide variety of ways. It is a day for celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender equality. This year's theme, " Each for Equal", is drawn from a notion of 'Collective Individualism'. We are all parts of a whole. Our individual actions, conversations, behaviours and attitudes can have an impact on our larger society. Collectively, we can make change happen, and help to create a gender equal world. What's that about?
