"South-east Australia is on fire. Why? Because the temperatures of the Earth are increasing. We have been putting things off year after year. We've been raising targets, saying 'oh well, if we do it in the next 20 years …' the moment of crisis has come." Sir David Attenborough. January 2020


THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS ARE LARGELY DEPENDENT UPON OUR MEMBERS FOR FINANCIAL SUPPORT - Please help us to campaign for a fairer, open and equal UK.

Fighting Brexit and the three 2019 Elections have been very expensive and have stretched our resources to the limit. In 2020 we have the Police & Crime Commissioner elections and in 2021 the Suffolk County Council election campaign.

These 2019 campaigns would not have been possible without the tremendous support of our members and supporters to whom we are largely dependent. To everyone who donated in 2019, we say a big thank you. Campaigning, however doesn't stop with these elections and we continue to look to our members and supporters to help fund our party. Your donation will help fund our local campaigns.

    Joseph Rowntree Foundation on the scale of poverty*** across the UK and how it affects people who are caught in its grip.

    The widely respected Joseph Rowntree Foundation have released their 2019/20 report UK Poverty.

    The report says "For a decent standard of living, we all need security and stability in our lives - secure housing, a reliable income, and support when things get difficult. For too many of us, there is no such security. Millions of people in the UK are struggling to get by, leading insecure and precarious lives, held back from improving their living standards. It's time to take action on poverty and put this right. In this report we set out what we need to do to turn the tide on poverty.

    IT'S ALL ABOUT ME, AS JOHNSON SURROUNDS HIMSELF WITH 'YES' PEOPLE

    By Jon James -14th February 2020

    Having been urged by his Guru, Dominic Cummings to ditch the Chancellor and capture the Treasury, Boris couldn't see his way to getting rid of his uncooperative neighbour and his hands on the county's purse strings. Difficult to be seen sacking a recently appointed Chancellor days before a Budget; he gave his own precious Gollum* the green light and sanctioned the cursory dismissal of his neighbour's staff, thus undermining the Chancellor's Treasury power base and the future credibility of the financial Department of State.
