    "Margate is on the up, but let's face facts," says John Finnegan, local resident and campaigner, "Margate has a litter and fly tipping problem."

    "We in Margate are fed up with the mess. Much of the litter is due to carelessly storing rubbish which then gets attacked by seagulls and scattered wide by the wind."

    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).

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

    This was the hardest of elections, marred by the tragedy of those vile terrorist attacks in Manchester and in London.

    And now the future of our country is less certain than it was when Theresa May called this election a month and a half ago.

    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.

    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.

    While PM May imagined this election would be all about Brexit, it has exposed the widespread destruction of our social services right across the board, as the State continues to shrink before our very eyes: Over 22% reduction in police funding, cutbacks to armed services (crucial to our security in these dangerous times); schools being forced to cut staff and even to seek parental contributions; Sure Start centres closing; unacceptable waiting lists and staff shortages in the clearly underfunded NHS - the list goes on.
