In a letter published in the Slough Express on 28 May, Sukh Dhillon, Lib Dem candidate in Upton Ward in the elections in May, explained the severity of the financial crisis facing Slough's Labour-run Council, and how the irresponsible response of the Tory councillors also failed Slough residents:
Following hersensational by-election victory over the Tories, Sarah Green (see left), the new Lib Dem MP for Chesham and Amersham, said in her acceptance speech, that the Lib Dems:
"Will continue the work of holding this [Tory] Government to account for letting Covid rip through the care homes. We will speak up for the three million people excluded from financial support throughout the pandemic and we will challenge BorisJohnson to be far more ambitious in tackling climate change, supporting our frontline workers and backing our small businesses."
People looking after their loved ones too often feel forgotten. Lib Dem leader, Ed Davey said:
Yesterday, I spent some time meeting with a wonderful group of unpaid carers.
We had been brought together by Carers UK and a number of other carers' organisations as part of Carers Week, so they could share their experiences directly with me and we could discuss what changes might make their lives better.
We must rebuild as a fairer, greener and more caring country in the aftermath of Covid.
Boris Johnson has utterly failed to deliver an ambitious programme, said Ed Davey MP, Lib Dem leader.
So it is crushingly disappointing thatthe Government's plans will fail on so many grounds- still failing small businesses and the self-employed, still not rising properly to the climate challenge and still ignoring millions of people caring for loved ones at home.
"As a victim of knife crime myself, I fully agree with Slough Lib Dems Sukh Dhillon and Jo Hanney that we need to adopt innovative approaches to tackle crime more effectively." This was the message from John Howson, Lib Dem Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner candidate, when he visited Slough on 23rd April.
Sukh Dhillon says, "On the important issues of foodbanks, I'm pleased to be one of the Slough Lib Dem candidates who have pledged our support to the work aimed at ending the need for#foodbanks in our community.
