  • People's Vote March, London March 23rd 2019
    Article: Oct 18, 2019

    With Johnson doing all he can to force his so-called "new deal" through Parliament tomorrow, despite experts' warnings that his hastily compromised version of May's thrice-defeated deal is even worse and will spell total disaster for the UK (aside, that is, from the handful of wealthy Johnson cronies who stand to benefit at the expense of the rest of us British citizens), tomorrow's People's Vote March in London is set to be the most important one yet.

    The Liberal Democrats' Wealden parliamentary candidate Chris Bowers has slammed Conservative MP Nus Ghani for using parliamentary allowances to fund an environmental leaflet that he calls "greenwash electioneering".

    Chris Bowers, who is likely to be the leading challenger to Ms Ghani at the next general election, says the Conservative MP has seemingly used taxpayers' money for advance election publicity disguised as public information.

    The NHS is haemorrhaging "hundreds of thousands of pounds in Wealden" through interest payments on debt, according to figures unearthed by the Liberal Democrats.

    The figures from the Department for Health and Social Care, uncovered by a Liberal Democrat Freedom of Information request, revealed over £600 million worth of interest on outstanding debt was paid nationally by NHS trusts to the Department for Health and Social Care in the last five years.

    Chris Bowers has been named as Wealden Liberal Democrats' parliamentary candidate and will stand in the general election that looks increasingly likely to occur either later this year or early next. And with Chris' candidacy comes the very real possibility of Wealden gaining a LibDem MP (and its first ever non-Tory MP).

    It's EU Elections Day today and the sun is shining so please do get out and vote! With Farage's Brexit "Party" still ahead in the polls, it's absolutely vital that Remainers and all those in favour of a People's Vote on the final deal turn out and unite to vote for the Remain Party in their region that has the best chance. In our region, the South-East, latest polls show that the LibDems are now best placed to take an extra seat from the Brexit Party and that a vote for Change UK would unfortunately be a vote wasted (they would need over 7% to get a single seat and are nowhere near that).
