    Slough Lib Dems joined Lib Dems and others from across the country in yesterday's million+ march to Parliament demanding a People's Vote on the Brexit deal, with an option to Remain.

    Over the last 2 years a combination of Slough's Labour Council and the Tory Government and Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner have increased Slough's council tax bill by 8.6%.

    It was an above-inflation 4.7% in 2018/19, and on top of that a further above-inflation 3.9% rise in 2019/20.

    The Tory Government's under-funding of the police and social care is a key reason for the above-inflation increases. The Tory Government could have found the money to avoid cuts and under-funding in recent years. But the police and social care were not sufficient priority for the Tory Ministers.

    At the Lib Dem's spring conference in York, Dr Vince Cable joked grumbles about regulations from Rome on straight roads etc contributed to Rexit, from which it took York 700 years to recover.

    For months Slough Lib Dems have campaigned for a People's Vote on the final EU deal, with an option to Remain in the EU. This is the best and quickest way to end the Brexit chaos.

    Back in October local Lib Dem campaigners like Matthew Taylor and Jo Hanney (pictured in Langley) found when they provided shoppers with an opportunity to have their say on Brexit, local residents strongly backed a People's Vote, with an option to Remain in the EU.

    Excessive one-party control of local councils too often leads to them ignoring sensible points made by anybody else.

    Slough Lib Dem campaigner Jo Hanney highlighted this problem in a letter in the Express on Fri 1st March about the Labour-run Slough Council, and the Tory-run Windsor and Maidenhead Council. She promised in the local elections in May the Lib Dems, and others, would be trying to reduce the one-party excessive rule of each council.

    The case for better public services and a People's Vote on Brexit are closely linked.

    Article: Feb 1, 2019

    Robert Plimmer, Chair of Slough Lib Dems, is proposing ways to make progress in dealing with Slough's housing crisis.

    The severe housing shortage in Slough has many causes, including the long-standing Tory policies that have reduced the stock of social housing available, and the actions of Slough Labour party.
