Former Labour MP says “vote Liberal Democrat”

Posted on: 20th May 2019

A former Labour MP and good friend, Andrew Mackinlay, contacted me this evening to say he’s encouraging Labour supporters to vote Liberal Democrat in Thursday’s Euro poll. He gave me the following statement: Andrew Mackinlay, who was for 18 years the Labour Member of Parliament for Thurrock, has urged Labour Party Remain supporting members to […]

Euro elections – send a strong message – vote Liberal Democrat

Posted on: 17th May 2019

This election sees the strong return of the Liberal Democrats. It’s a golden opportunity – to send a strong message to Westminster. The UK is a country of lions led by donkeys. This Government has turned the UK into the world’s biggest laughingstock. The Conservatives have spent three years faffing and in-fighting. They offered multi-million £ ferry contracts to companies with no ferries. […]

Brexit – a deliberate ploy to avert attention from a climate of chaos?

Posted on: 9th May 2019

The 3 pro-Brexit Parties – Conservatives, Labour and UKIP – got their comeuppance from voters in last week’s local elections. Anti-Brexit Liberal Democrats did remarkably well, even in Leave voting areas. And anti-Brexit bed-fellows the Green Party also did very well. PM Theresa May concluded that voters were telling her to “just get on with […]

Young people – our climate conscience

Posted on: 6th May 2019

Really encouraged to meet students at Cape Cornwall School and at Mounts Bay Academy. All so very interested, engaged, committed. Our discussion? Climate Change. Many had gone on School “Strike” to protest that their parents and grandparents generations had let them down. Had left them a legacy which threatens their future and of thousands of species […]

Brexit – Putting our planet first – public meeting

Posted on: 25th April 2019

What will Brexit mean for our environment? Would the UK be better on its own? Or is it better to cooperate – on environmental protection and combating climate change – across Europe? These and other questions will be discussed at a further public meeting I’ve organised to take place on Wednesday 1st May. Arranged to […]

Talking of dividing people…

Posted on: 25th April 2019

…if the purpose of the Conservative Government’s policy on the EU was to divide people, promote division to the point of the break-up of families, growing intolerance and threats, the risk of the break-up of the UK and visceral disputes which will take at least a generation to heal, then it’s been a phenomenal success! […]

EU animal protections

Posted on: 11th April 2019

In November 2017 Conservative MPs voted against transposing EU animal protections into UK law. Following a public backlash the Conservatives promised to introduce their own law; to recognise animal sentience – that animals have feelings. We warned that Government needed these laws before our departure from the EU. But nothing’s happened. As well as removing […]

The Government’s three years of Brexit negotiations

Posted on: 11th April 2019

The Government’s three years of Brexit negotiations have produced trade deals with such global superpowers as the Faroe Islands (and a few others). We also now live in a polarised nation which has become the laughingstock of the world. Parliament appears incapable of making ‘meaningful’ decisions. Whatever your view on Brexit, it would be calamitous […]
