  • Councillor gains in 2019
    Article: May 5, 2019

    The Liberal Democrats performed well in the recent council elections across Kent with 228 gains.

  • 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.

    The Liberal Democrats have today announced their list of MEP candidates in the South East constituency for the European elections on the 23rd May.

    The diverse list of candidates includes a current MEP, Councillors and other hard working community activists.

    Operation Brock, the contraflow on the M20 between junctions 8 & 9, has been in place for just over 2 ½ weeks.

    By Jeremy Kitt, Liberal Democrat Candidate for Thanet Villages

    Incidents of people driving down quiet country lanes at the dead of night dumping all manner of commercial and household waste are on the increase. As a candidate for the Thanet Villages Ward I am particularly concerned that we find a better way to protect the green heart of our community.

    In the last year alone there were nearly 20,000 recorded incidents of fly-tipping in Kent. In 2017, Thanet District Council spent £109,550 cleaning up after fly tippers, that's money that should have been spent on local services.
