  • Fight climate change with solar panels
    Article: Apr 23, 2019
    By Sir Ed Davey

    Our reliance on fossil fuels puts our children in danger and gives power to despots across the globe. Ed Davey outlines an emergency plan to beat the climate crisis.

    Whether it's young people taking time off school or the Commons' naked protestors: they are right. We face a climate crisis.

    Liberal Democrats should provide the emergency plan. In 3 parts.

    Sadly, we do not have a Lib Dem candidate for this ward. We would like this to be different next time. If you would like to be considered, or know of someone else that would be interested, please do get in touch.

    Dr Stuart Dove
    I am a retired GP, having been based at the Willesborough surgery for 27 years until I retired in 2005. I am married with 3 sons and 7 grand-children. I have been involved with Ashford life for 40 years although I live in Brabourne Lees. I am enthusiastic about wildlife and conservation and the state of the planet. I am concerned that Ashford should thrive and develop as a place to live in, a place to work and a place to enjoy. We should be proud of our town.
    While it is inevitable that new housing will be built in and around the town, it is essential that new developments are situated where they will cause minimal impact on existing homes and their residents. Also, the estates and buildings should be of a high standard and make pleasant environments for all.
    Whatever the outcome of the Brexit process, I am keen that the relationship between Kent and continental Europe remains cordial, active and strong.

    Five reasons to vote for the Liberal Democrats in the European elections on 23rd May.

    1. To vote against Brexit

    The Liberal Democrats are the only nation-wide party to have been fighting Brexit since the very beginning.

    We've spent three years campaigning for a People's Vote with an option to remain in the EU.

    I suspect that many people outside the church think that Christmas is the most important date in the Christian calendar. It isn't Christmas, but Easter. While at Christmas we celebrate Jesus, the son of God coming to earth, taking on human form and living like we do. At Easter, we remember he died for us and was brought back to life.

    Our printers are working through the night to create mailings to 2.8 million people across the UK - telling them why they need to vote Liberal Democrat in the European elections.

    We're off to a flying start thanks to your generous donations.

    THANK YOU.

    In both the local and European elections, we have a real story to tell. Your support enables us to tell our story to millions online and offline.

    Our campaigning up and down the country is delivering more Lib Dem voters in the local elections and more votes to stop Brexit.

    But as the EU election has been called so suddenly, it means we don't know if we can raise the funds to keep campaigning at this high level.

    The Liberal Democrats are the ONLY pro-Remain party with the capacity to deliver a European election campaign on such short notice - here's what the papers are saying:

    Whether Brexit ever happens or not, what is certain is this week we will commemorate the original Exodus some 3,332 years ago.

    The evening of April 19th marks the beginning of the eight-day Jewish festival of Passover (Pesach) - a religiously significant period which commemorates the Israelite's journey out of Egypt after years of slavery and bondage under ancient Egyptian rule. An epic journey from slavery to freedom.

    Local election campaigns around the country are going well with just under two weeks left. Like many of you, our home has moved into our regular election machine, and our driveway is the Watford garden poster factory!

    If you haven't yet, make sure to ask your local team for a garden poster (or window poster if you cannot have a garden one) and show your friends and neighbours that the Lib Dems are winning here!

    Whether it's young people taking time off school or the Commons' naked protestors: they are right. We face a climate crisis.

    Liberal Democrats should provide the emergency plan. In 3 parts.

    • UK-wide action to green ourselves.
    • Action to decarbonise capitalism - starting with the City of London.
    • And an international green new deal - where richer countries support poorer countries.
