    Members of the public remain banned from asking questions at Kent County Council meetings after out-of-touch Tories voted down a Liberal Democrat proposal.

    Twenty or more county councils including Kent's neighbours, East Sussex, Essex and Surrey, encourage the public to participate in meetings, as does Medway Council and all but one of the county's district councils. So what are the Conservatives so worried about?

    The Lib Dems continued their outstanding performance in council elections yesterday with a win in Maidstone North. This is more evidence that people in Kent are choosing the Liberal Democrats when it comes to making a stand against the Conservative cuts.

    The result was:

    LDEM: 51.4% (+20.0)
    CON: 26.0% (-6.0)
    LAB: 19.3% (+8.0)
    GRN: 3.4% (-2.1)

    By Martyn Pennington

    As in 2016, this year turned out very differently from what we expected a year ago.

    In April, just as we were preparing our last push in the KCC elections, a real snap General Election meant we had to go the extra mile and carry on campaigning until June 8th. After the shattering results of the 2015 General Election, followed by the massive disappointment of the EU referendum in 2016, we hoped for better - hopes that a large proportion of the 48% 'remain' voters, and a significant number of Labour voters unable to agree with Jeremy Corbyn's leadership style and policies, would support us, gave us a reasonable base for optimism. The outcome could have been worse but could have been so much better.
