  • People's Vote campaign in Slough High Street 26 Jan 19
    Article: May 4, 2019

    'The Liberal Democrats have launched their European election campaign with an "unambiguous" pledge to stop Brexit.' This is how the BBC described the launch of the Lib Dem campaign for the European elections on 23 May.

    The Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable said a "people's vote" was the only way to end the Brexit "paralysis". The massive gains for the Lib Dems in the local elections across the country on Thurs 2 May confirmed the Lib Dems as the leading party campaigning to stop Brexit.

    We can't match this wonderful Lib Dem poster for a joint team, but as light relief from Brexit, let's look at the names of some Slough Lib Dem candidates. We have Robert Plimmer's way of promoting his colleague Matthew Taylor in Cippenham Meadows: "Matthew is Taylor made for Cippenham Meadows".

    Who should promote the Lib Dem campaign to reverse the Council's massive hike in charges for sports pitches in the parks of Slough. Well, of course, father and daughter Lib Dem candidates Rod and Niccola Parkes in Upton, and Haymill & Lynch Hill, respectively.

    A team of Lib Dem students led by Damayanti Chatterjee from Upton delivered a Focus leaflet promoting Niccola Parkes, Lib Dem candidate in Haymill & Lynch Hill, and her Dad, Rod Parkes, Lib Dem candidate in Upton. (The photo shows Damayanti & Rod in the centre).

    The Focus leaflet highlights the Lib Dem call for Slough Borough Council to join others across the country that have declared a Climate Emergency, and start planning for Slough to be carbon neutral by 2030. A public health approach to tackling air pollution is important. The Lib Dems also call for an audit of progress towards meeting the 2009 motion from former Lib Dem councillor Robert Plimmer calling for Slough Council itself to go carbon neutral by 2020.

    "With the Tory Government underfunding vital local services like policing and health, and the twin threats of Brexit and climate change, it is crucial to elect some councillors in May with new ideas for making the most of the resources that are available", says Matthew Taylor, Lib Dem candidate for Cippenham Meadows. Matthew continued, "As an architect, and keen runner, I would be well placed to promote Slough Lib Dems' new thinking.

    "Things need to change in Slough. Lib Dems demand better health, housing, environmental, police and other services than residents are currently getting from the combination of the Tory Government, and a Labour-run Council." This is the message from Matthew Taylor, Lib Dem candidate for Cippenham Meadows as he launched the Liberal Democrats' campaign document for the May 2019 local elections to Slough Borough Council.

    "The Lib Dems have been right to consistently demand better funding for the NHS" says Matthew Taylor. The Lib Dems' longstanding demands for better funding and joined-up policies for the NHS & Social Care include the public health services covered by local councils that are vital for reducing levels of ill-health. Tory Government failures on social care funding contribute to "bed-blocking" and create even worse problems for the NHS.

    Many people are appalled that a highly intelligent and hard-working politician like Dominic Grieve is facing deselection by his local Tory party - in our neighbouring constituency of South Bucks.

    The move against Dominic Grieve was led by the person who stood against him for UKIP in the 2017 election, but who has now entered the Tory party. Mr Grieve appears to have lost the confidence of his local Tory party because he put the interests of the country before those of the Conservative Party. He works with others across parties to promote the right of the people to be asked whether they accept the Brexit deal, or would prefer to remain in the EU.

  • Slough Lib Dems with the People's Vote Brexitometer
    Article: Mar 28, 2019

    Slough Lib Dems are calling for the Council to join those across the UK that have declared a climate emergency and are urgently developing action plans to go carbon neutral by 2030.

    Josephine Hanney says:

    "The steps needed to go carbon neutral, and tackle the increasingly recognised problems of air pollution, are strengthened through collaboration with other EU countries. Pollution and climate change do not recognise national borders. The EU is currently responsible for ensuring the government complies with air quality legislation, but this would be lost after Brexit.

    Article: Mar 27, 2019

    Slough Lib Dems demand the Council should join the increasing number of councils across the UK that are declaring a 'Climate Emergency' in their area. Climate change is the single greatest threat to our future way of life. It is even more of a threat for the residents of Slough because the town has the youngest population of any large urban area in the UK.

  • Slough Lib Dems at People's Vote March-March 2019
    Article: Mar 24, 2019

    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.

    One man was conspicous by his absence. Alongside the chants for a Peopl's Vote, and an Exit from Brexit, the cry also went up: "Where's Jeremy Corbyn?"

Exit from Brexit, with the Lib Dems and Jo Swinson!
