    Time and time again, we hear that the reality of what ethnic minorities face in our party and in our politics does not match up to the principles we hold, and, as a party committed to equality, it is vital that we apply our values and make a change. I will provide the positive vision and leadership we need to move forward and make that happen.

    A campaigning Vice President, for a campaigning Party

    I was a 100/200m Sprinter. Catastrophe struck in my early 20's when my achilles tendon ruptured. For 20 months I was in a wheelchair. I needed wheelchair-friendly public transport to hospital and the inadequacy of it shocked me. It made me realise that everyone has a choice. When you see something that's wrong, do you leave it for someone else, or do you fight for change?

    Vision

    My goals for this role are:

    • I want to help provide a platform for better training and promote a programme that supports ethnic minority members to develop their potential, so they are competently able to stand for external and internal elections of office
    • I want to see established an attractive and resilient message that helps to build a strong foundation for the Liberal Democrats to engage and campaign with in Ethnic Minority communities
    • Within the party, I want to establish a better understanding of Ethnic minority issues on housing, education, LGBT+, heath, crime, etc. This will allow us to better serve the ethnic minority communities at a national and local level

    You, as Liberal Democrat members, have asked me for a diverse, inclusive party that represents all sections of all our communities well.

    I am standing to be your Vice President for minority communities to promote inclusion and to eliminate racism and other discrimination from inside our party, to inspire more and more candidates from under-represented groups to stand and to inspire all of us to engage on a sustained and substantive basis with all of the UK's communities so that we eliminate exclusion and disadvantage.

    Your vote matters and is a Vote for Hope, Action and Transformation.

    From when I arrived in London as a teenager, Sir John Major was Prime Minister and I felt a connection with the city. Firstly at university, and later whilst living in Islington, my political views formed and I joined the Liberal Democrats.

  • Aldi in Bushbury

    ALDI in Mercury Drive, Bushbury, applied for extended opening hours, including for the sale of alcohol, so that the store will be open from 6 in the morning until Midnight! They later adapted their planned opening hours to 7am to 11pm, which is still unsatisfactory.

    Local residents are all to well aware of the problems that the store has created, including noise from late night delivery lorries, and appalling parking. Some customers seem unable to park in the rear carpark and just leave their vehicles on the street. The car-park is often hardly full yet customers park on double yellows or double park.

    The Liberal Democrats have always understood that thriving businesses and motivated entrepreneurs are central to our communities, innovation, quality of life and international standing we all want.

    It was the Liberal Democrats who pioneered wind power generation, foresaw the banking crisis, and are today prepared to work to rebuild the trading environment damaged by Brexit and the pandemic.

    The Liberal Democrats have selected Helen Morgan as their candidate for next month's North Shropshire by-election. Recently North Shropshire ha seen the closure of both of its ambulance stations, GP services were in crisis and A&E wait times were on the rise.

    Mrs Morgan said she was also passionate about getting a fair deal for Shropshire's farmers at risk as the Conservatives continue to let them down with disappointing trade deals.

    The Liberal Democrats have called for a "Sewage Tax" on water companies to prevent raw sewage polluting rivers and lakes. It would tax the profits of water companies in addition to the current 19% rate of corporation tax.

    Water companies pumped polluting and harmful raw sewage in national water sources over 400,000 times last year. The River Trust reveals more than half of England's rivers are currently failing to pass cleanliness tests due to water companies' actions. Yet the government says taxpayers should pay for sewage system improvements.
