    Brexit is a national embarrassment

    Brexit is a national embarrassment. The events of the last few weeks have proven that the government is in absolute chaos.

    The Prime Minister pulled her Brexit vote; but if that wasn't bad enough her MPs' leadership challenge also spoke volumes: Conservative MPs can change their minds, but the British people cannot!

    Earlier this year, we enjoyed our best council election results in 15 years. We snatched control of councils like South Cambridgeshire, Kingston-upon-Thames and Richmond upon Thames from the Conservatives. And in cities like Hull, Sunderland and Liverpool, we gained ground against complacent Labour councils who've taken their residents for granted.

    Next year over 9,000 council seats and the control of councils around the country will be in the balance. It's a huge chance to build on our successes and make more headlines for the Liberal Democrats.

    1. Thersa May rules out revoking Article 50

    The ECJ rules that No Brexit is an option but Theresa May blindly ploughs ahead with her broken deal. We were given the option to get out of this mess and Theresa May turned it down.

    Only by having a People's Vote will Theresa May listen and cancel Brexit before it's too late.

    After years of putting pressure on the Government, on Tuesday they agreed major concessions on the Tenant Fees Bill.

    We campaigned to:

    • significantly limit the fees that could be charged to a tenant by their landlord or lettings agent,
    • require a greater amount of transparency when deciding not to refund a holding deposit, and
    • limit the maximum security deposit a landlord can require to five weeks rent.

    At Full Council 28th November, Dacorum Borough Council unanimously backed an amended LibDem Motion and agreed a significant proposal to combat the effects of climate change. This Motion referenced the recent IPCC report urging action on climate change and required that the new local plan currently under consideration should have within it environmental protection and sustainability considerations.

    In proposing the Motion Liberal Democrat Cllr. Ron Tindall also welcomed the Conservative amendment on the proposal as this brought all parties together to face the threats to the planet:

  • Cllr Inga Lockington
    Article: Dec 13, 2018

    Leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable has said "Having seen the Conservative backbenches will not support her deal the Prime Minister must change course. Her deal is doomed to defeat in the Commons, so she should show real leadership by putting this question back to the public in a People's Vote. The EU is clear that there is no more negotiating to do, so it's this deal or No Brexit. That is the choice on which every voter should now have a final say - and Liberal Democrats will campaign vigorously for the UK to remain a full member of the EU."

  • SH Library Services
    Article: Dec 13, 2018

    The recent CIPFA's annual library survey has found that spending by local authorities on public libraries fell by £30m in 2017/18 and that 127 service points were closed down this year. This is in contrast to Bedford Borough who, under Mayor Dave Hodgson's leadership, have kept all of our libraries open.
