Hastings and Rye Lib Dems

Working hard for you

We are now in the run up to an election

There are critical issues that have not been properly dealt with for years

  • Childhood is being blighted for 30% of children who are growing up in absolute poverty and 40% of children who are growing up in relative poverty.
  • The inequality of wealth is getting worse and worse with billionaires having doubled their wealth in the last 10 years, while the standard of living of ordinary citizens is largely static or declining
  • We need to do more than pay lip service to Green issues - the future of our children and grandchildren depend on it.
  • The concentration of power (and money) in central government reduces the relevance of local government and that leads to very poor decision making.
  • All of this is leading to the collapse of many of the civil services that we all rely on: NHS, Legal services, schools, Social services etc, etc, etc,
  • and the erosion of our faith in the democratic process that is supposed to represent our views, but so often doesn't.

The Tories have been a failed government for years, no matter how good and hard-working individuals might be, they are tainted by association with a failing government, whose policies have brought Britain to the brink. They have long since ceased to be the one nation party which is why many former Tory voters have turned to the LibDems.
