    "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 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.

    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?"

    Today is the day for the People's Vote March in London demanding a vote on the Brexit deal, with an option to Remain. Slough Lib Dems will be there.

    But for a campaigner from Swansea, Ed Sides, today is the final stage of his 200 miles walk from Swansea to London to highlight the People's Vote March. Slough Lib Dem Matthew Taylor, who is also Chair of Slough for Europe, joined Ed on the section from Slough station to West Drayton (see photo).

    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.

    Matthew Taylor and Robert Plimmer took up the challenge Windsor's Lord Chris Fox issued to all Lib Dem groups to campaign for improvements to their town centres.

    The challenge came as Lord Fox, the Lib Dem's parliamentary spokesperson for Business, Enterprise and Industrial Strategy, spoke at the end of the Lib Dem conference debate on Sunday on a policy motion: Town Centres Fit for the Future.

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