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 […]

“Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!”

Posted on: 25th September 2019

PM Johnson is imprisoned in his own web of deceit. His Government dragged unwillingly back to Parliament today to face uncomfortable scrutiny. Guilty of misleading the Queen, of acting unlawfully, of lying to Parliament and frustrating parliamentary democracy. PM Johnson, his Commons’ Leader, Mr Rees-Mogg, and Attorney General, Mr Cox, should “consider their positions” and […]

Value “wellbeing” – not wealth

Posted on: 18th September 2019

I strongly welcome Jo Swinson’s promise to put “Wellbeing” budgets at the heart of the annual Budget. We’re too obsessed with GDP and wealth. I’ve long supported this policy. We should shout about it. Of course the Government should regularly assess how its actions affect happiness. Measuring just monetary value misses the point of life. […]
