    Speaking at the National Liberal Club on the day after the general election, Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron said:

    Why is this not part of the General Election debate, ask the Liberal Democrats.

    Donald Trump's shocking decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change is a timely reminder of the devastating effects on us all of man-made global warming, from air, river and sea pollution to increased periods of flooding and dramatic reduction in biodiversity. PM May's shameful refusal to sign a letter to Trump condemning this action is a chilling reminder of the UK's need to stay on the right side of Uncle Sam - whoever's in charge - in the wake of severance from our European allies.

    Conservative manifesto plans will mean the average household in Dover could be forced to pay 56% of the value of their homes for social care after they die, it has been revealed.

    The manifesto plans, which would mean that people would be forced to hand over assets worth over £100,000 to pay for social care at home, would have a particularly damaging impact on sufferers of dementia, who have complicated long-term health needs.

    Liberal Democrats in Dover and Deal have expressed concern at recent figures published by the Health Service Journal showing the number of GP's in Kent over 55 is as high as 24.2%, the highest in the country.

    With more doctors leaving the NHS than joining it, fears are spreading that Kent could fall into crisis with older GP's approaching retirement age as demand for services increases.

    The Liberal Democrats have launched their manifesto with plans for a brighter future, with pledges to reverse Conservative cuts and increase funding for the NHS, schools and police.

    The Party's landmark policy would give the people the final say on the Brexit deal which would include the option to remain in the EU.

    96% of homes in Dover could be eligible for sale to meet Theresa May's so-called 'dementia tax', research by the Liberal Democrats has revealed.

    Simon Dodd, Liberal Democrat candidate for Dover, has urged residents, irrespective of their party affiliation, to join a campaign to stop the Conservative social care plans which would saddle those with long-term illnesses with crippling care costs after their death.
