    At today's County Council meeting Kent's Conservatives voted to increase member allowances by 15%. Liberal Democrat and other opposition councillors voted against the proposal as did one Conservative. Nine Conservative councillors abstained.

    Earlier in the debate Conservative councillors set aside the Liberal Democrat proposal that councillors should follow the advice of the independent Member Remuneration Panel which had recommended a modest 1.5% rise.

    At Thursday's County Council meeting the Kent Liberal Democrats will propose that the allowances paid to members should follow the recommendations of the independent Member Remuneration Panel. The modest increases proposed by the Panel will restore member allowances to the 2009 levels and set an appropriate indexation for future years.

    Kent County Council's Growth, Economic Development and Communities Committee were warned today that Kent business currently gets £45 million per year in EU farming support.

    But the government has not firmly committed to replacing this funding after 2022, likely to lead to job losses and businesses closing.

    When we saw the exit poll results at the Winter Gardens on Thursday evening, our first thought was "it could have been a lot worse!".

    From a purely Lib Dem point of view, we gained a significant increase in the number of MPs, which was a key objective, and the results have shown how close we came to winning several more (we lost Fife North-East by just two votes, and Richmond Park by 45 votes).
