    The Lib Dems gained a record number of Council seats in May 2019, and had our best ever results in the elections to the European Parliament based on our campaign to Stop Brexit and tackle the Environmental Crisis.

    We will announce our new leader next week, and now is a great time to become a Lib Dem member or supporter. The photo shows some of the team campaigning for the Lib Dems in the recent local elections in Slough.

    Slough Lib Dems are celebrating their role in helping the Lib Dems elect 3 of the South East's 10 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). Catherine Bearder ( @catherinemep ) was re-elected, and is joined by @antonyhook and @JudithBuntingLD

    The local party delivered leaflets in many parts of Slough, but in the short time available could not get to every street: apologies to those who missed out on receiving one of our 'Stop Brexit' leaflets. Slough Lib Dems are now planning how to continue helping the campaign to keep the UK in the EU.

    Slough Lib Dems are continuing the campaign to get as many as people as possible to vote Lib Dem to show they want to Stop Brexit.

    Slough Lib Dem Jo Hanney says:

    "The Lib Dems have been campaigning for almost 3 years for a people's vote to let the British public decide if they want to accept the deal to leave the EU, or would rather remain in the EU. The Lib Dems are gaining increasing support in the European elections because we have been so clear we want a people's vote and will campaign in the referendum to remain in the EU."

    "We're campaigning together to stop Brexit and re-elect Catherine Bearder as our wonderful Lib Dem Member of the European Parliament for the South East", said Councillor Amy Tisi, newly elected Lib Dem councillor on the RBWM for Clewer East.

    Lib Dems from Windsor and Slough (and some of their children) joined forces on Saturday 11 May to campaign in Cippenham for the re-election of Catherine Bearder. She has been a Member of the European Parliament for the South East since 2009.

    '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.
