Hastings & Rye LibDems 

Vote with your Heart


The election is on the 4th July 

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.

Help Guy to build the LibDem voice for the future - we need volunteers, money and supporters.

Revised Local Constitution

Some technical rather than substantive changes to the current local party constitution (see link here) are proposed just to ensure consistency with the 'Model Local Party Constitution', attached to the LibDem Constitution for England, as is required. The main change is for Article 7.2 (b) to be amended to include a reference for an independent report to be provided when the accounts for the previous year are submitted for approval by the AGM and then to delete Article 10.5 which provides for the annual accounts to be approved separately at a General Meeting to be held early each year

Take Part in the Air Pollution Survey

AIR POLLUTION SURVEY As a local GP before his retirement, Emlyn Jones (pictured here) is well aware of the number of people with respiratory illnesses in the area. Local councils have a duty to monitor air pollution, but their ability to do so has been severely restricted by Tory spending cuts, which have particularly hit local authorities. Together with his colleagues Susan Stoodley and Stewart Rayment, Emlyn thought it would be good to try to get an idea of how people see airborne pollutants in your locality as potentially affecting their health and wellbeing.
