    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 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.

    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.

    Owen Patterson has resigned in a cloud of Tory sleaze. He's handed us a golden opportunity to send a message to this Conservative government - but we need to grab it now.

    The Lib Dems are in the best possible position to compete with the Tories. We are the clear alternative to the Tory vote.

    This by-election is a chance to embarrass the Tories in what was one of their safest seats.

    The 2019 General Election Review (the Thornhill Review) set out how we must change in order to succeed at future elections. Since its publication, in many areas we have made strides, but there is still much to do.

    The Party is currently consulting with members on our governance. Yet more Tory sleaze this week highlights how important for the country it is that we, once again, become a competitive liberal voice in the UK.

    Conservative MPs just voted to prevent Owen Paterson from being suspended despite abusing his position.

    It's clear that Boris Johnson believes that he and his colleagues shouldn't have to face the consequences of their actions. His Government has laid the groundwork for a crony committee of Conservatives to protect each other from the consequences of sleaze.

    The merits of standing in a council by-election we have a chance of winning are obvious. So too for wards which we might hope to win in the future and where the by-election is a chance to accelerate that progress.

    But there are also huge benefits in standing even in wards that we are not likely to win for a very long time yet (if ever).
