Buckingham Liberal Democrats

    It was fun and games for the first meeting of the new unitary council on 15 July, but there was bad news for the climate change crisis.

    Councillors had to meet virtually because of Covid-19, and the meeting began half an hour late because of inevitable technical problems - not a good start and the technical problems continued throughout. It's not helped either by having 200 councillors taking part - that number is set to reduce to 147 after next May's elections, but it's still too many for all to get a chance to participate properly.
    Anyway, as a shadow portfolio holder it was possible for me to ask some questions about what is happening with Covid-19 in Buckinghamshire, especially about care homes and about Test, Track and Trace. So that was useful, but it was frustrating for other opposition members who did not get to ask their questions or make their points.

    Since this article was written, the work on the brick pavers which Mohammad Fayyaz has been campaigning for, has been done. I hear complaints all the time about the state of our roads here in Chesham: the lack of drain maintenance causing floods, the potholes, the streetlights not working and so on.

    Article: Aug 2, 2020

    As leadership voting opened this week POLITICO sent both contenders 'quick-fire' questions including " Should the UK rejoin the EU?"

    On that Ed replied: "I'll always believe our best place is in the EU, but our job now is to convince the country of that. If the opportunity ever arises for us to rejoin, and we can take the public with us, I'll be at the frontline of that fight."

    By Wendy Chamberlain MP

    As the Liberal Democrat spokesperson for political and constitutional reform, the whole focus of my approach is trying to demonstrate the positive change which reforms can have. Our arguments are often too theoretical. They fail to meet people where they're at. If we cannot couch the case for a different voting system in terms of how it impacts people's lives, then I think we will continue to preach to the converted only.

    A complaint has been made about Layla Moran's campaign's use of data gathering tools ('Cookies') in their official website.

    The Party has considered carefully and has taken representations from the Campaign.

    The party's found that a technical breach had occurred in relation to the specific consents relating to these Cookies.

    What are the Liberal Democrats calling for?

    We're calling on the Government to grant indefinite leave to remain in the UK - the right to stay - to all foreign nationals currently working in the NHS and social care, and their families.

    How many people from other countries work in the NHS and social care?

    Throughout this crisis, the Government's communications have been an utter disaster.

    Yet more mistakes reveal how necessary it is for an inquiry to be launched now

    To announce a regional lockdown of millions of people not only just hours before it's enforced, but with no clarity on the new rules coming into place, is beyond comprehension.
