  • Brexitomter in Langley shows strong support for a People's Vote
    Article: Oct 27, 2018

    Langley shoppers gave strong support to a People's Vote on the Brexit deal when asked their opinion by local Lib Dems on the morning of Sat 27 Oct. In the afternoon the team will move on from the Harrow Market to test opinions of shoppers on Farnham Rd.

    The Lib Dem team used a Brexitomter to give residents the chance to vote on 4 questions. Overwhelmingly people thought Brexit was not going well, and that there should be a People's Vote on the Deal. Most people also thought Brexit would be bad for the NHS and for the economy.

  • Some of the Lib Dems on People's Vote march Oct 2018
    Article: Oct 24, 2018

    Slough Lib Dems joined about 700,000 other people in marching through London on Sat 20 Oct calling for the people to be allowed a vote on whether to accept the final Brexit deal, or reject it and remain in the EU.

    The march was noisy and good-humoured, but also determined that the Brexit process that was started by a vote of the people should be concluded one way or the other by the many UK citizens having a vote on the final deal, and not left to the few politicians in Parliament to decide. On Sat 27 Oct Slough Lib Dems will be taking the campaign to the Harrow Market, in Langley from 11.00-12.30, and Farnham Road from 1.30-3.00. Email for more details, or come along and join in. We shall be asking residents how well they think Brexit is going, and whether they think there should be a People's Vote on the deal.

    Today, an estimated 700,000 people marched on the streets of London, calling for a people's vote on Brexit.

    That makes it the biggest protest since the Iraq War.

    Slough Lib Dems are campaigning for the people to make the final decision on Brexit, and not the politicians. A recent article in the Slough Express on 17 Aug showed Slough was one of the constiuencies that seems to have changed its mind about Brexit and would now vote to remain in the EU.

    Lib Dem Robert Plimmer is delighted to have stormed ahead of the Tories into second place in Cippenham Meadows in the recent elections to Slough Council. In his Lib Dem Focus newsletter Robert thanks all those residents who supported the Lib Dem campaign.

    In his Thank-you Focus Robert also highlights the Lib Dem support for the NHS. Nationally the Lib Dems have consistently been calling for extra funding to support vital NHS services.

    Slough Lib Dems congratulate the NHS on 70 years of providing free healthcare for UK residents.

    The Lib Dems have campaigned for years for the NHS to get extra funding through a one penny increase in the rate of income tax. Robert Plimmer welcomes extra NHS funding recently announced by the Tory Government. But, experts said there are still massive gaps in Tory plans. No extra was announced for vital training of new nurses etc, or for social care, or for vital public health services that help prevent ill-health.

    Over the last five weeks, hundreds of Liberal Democrat activists have been hard at work campaigning in Lewisham East, for our fantastic candidate, Lucy Salek.

    And last night, their hard work was rewarded - we quadrupled our share of the vote and delivered a 19% swing against Labour - the largest swing against a Labour opposition since 1983.

    Article: May 6, 2018

    Lib Dem campaigner Robert Plimmer has been continuing to campaign alongside residents in his Cippenham Meadows ward and across Slough.

    In letters to the local papers published on 27 April Robert highlighted his campaign to get action to deal with the 12 utility boxes he had identified in Cippenham Meadows with exposed contents due to damaged or missing cabinet doors. Robert reported the utility boxes to Slough Borough Council because of the health and safety issues. As a result, the Council have issued notices requesting emergency repairs by Virgin Media.

    Article: May 4, 2018

    After a successful Lib Dem campaign Robert Plimmer increased his share of the vote in Cippenham Meadows by 50% in the Slough Council election on Thursday 3 May.

    This increase in Robert's support was enough for him to overtake the Tory candidate and storm into second place.

    Many residents said how much they appreciate the hard work Robert does in Cippenham throughout the year. This is often based on Robert and his Lib Dem Focus team listening to the concerns of the local community, and also developing positive policies on issues such as health and housing for the whole of Slough.
