Next budget – best chance to deliver

Posted on: 4th March 2020

Next week the Conservatives have a golden opportunity to prove they can keep their word – to “end austerity” – when they deliver their Budget. The Chancellor’s Budget statement is traditionally the moment a Government can give itself at least 2 days of favourable news coverage (until the reality of the small print is examined. […]

2020 – Offering the benefit of doubt…

Posted on: 30th December 2019

Let’s offer them the benefit of doubt in 2020⁄ If what’s promised is delivered, 2020 ought to be a year to look forward to… The Prime Minister promises to restore our NHS, boost our economy, resolve the social care crisis, leap towards zero carbon Britain, slash poverty and to invest in education, policing, vital infrastructure, […]

A “Golden Age”?!

Posted on: 19th December 2019

This Government wants to pass legislation to make sure it does what it says it will do. Evidently it doesn’t have much confidence in its own trustworthiness… But that’s what this Government has promised; to pass legislation to make sure it delivers money which it promised the NHS. Less than the NHS needs, but nevertheless […]

Unbowed, resilient – post election statement

Posted on: 14th December 2019

Once again the Conservative is swept in on a national tidal wave, while we are swept aside! Nonetheless, congratulations to Mr Thomas on his victory. A positive campaign – to build a brighter future We fought a positive campaign – for our children’s future. For an outward-looking, forward-looking and compassionate country. To heal the divisions, to bring […]

It’s Andrew George or the Conservative

Posted on: 22nd November 2019

If Andrew George doesn’t win we’ll have the same obedient Conservative representing us Westminster. Imagine how you’ll feel on 13th December if that happens. If the Conservative wins, it will probably mean five years of Johnson’s Tory party, supported by Mr Farage and the far right. There are fake stories on social media about future […]

This December election isn’t just about our future in Europe

Posted on: 6th November 2019

This December election isn’t just about our future in Europe. It’s about the shape of our country for decades to come. It’s about what kind of society we want to become. I’ll be running a positive campaign to restore decency and honesty to our politics. To build a brighter future. To combat those who want […]

Our Campaign Is Go!

Posted on: 6th November 2019

“For Jo Swinson to say she could do “a better job than” Boris Johnson – or Jeremy Corbyn for that matter – is setting the bar very low indeed. “This election isn’t just about our future in Europe. It’s about the shape of our country for the next generation. “The Conservatives want us to become […]

Tribalism won’t save our NHS from the Conservatives

Posted on: 25th October 2019

Strewth! Here we go again… Liberal Democrats DO NOT support the privatisation of the NHS and will fight Tory attempts to put profit before patient care. I spent long enough fighting a Labour Government which rolled out the red carpet for the private sector in the NHS and fighting the Tories during those awful Coalition […]

Passing the exploding blame parcel

Posted on: 11th October 2019

Who will blink first in the UK/EU game of blame-avoidance? The Conservative Government or the EU? The Johnson/Cummings Government maintains its artful bluster. But their bluff has been called. Their empty promises exposed. I doubt the EU will grant Johnson the prize he craves – freedom to blame everyone but himself. So, the EU is […]

Caretaker Government must be Plan A for Opposition Parties

Posted on: 7th October 2019

History will not be kind to the collection of opposition Parties and independent MPs if they allow the Cummings/Johnson Government to continue fibbing their way to 31st October. The parliamentary maths is clear. A majority of MPs want to stop the Conservatives. A vote of no confidence followed by the creation of a caretaker Government […]
