  • Osborne's Poll Tax !

    By Brian Markham

    Tim Farron has branded George Osborne's unfair tax credit changes the Chancellor's very own Poll Tax.

    As a debate takes place in Parliament on the changes that will penalise working families, Tim said:

    "George Osborne's attack on working families is an aggressive assault on millions of people in Britain. Saying you are listening is cold comfort to hard working people who face losing a large part of their pay packet.

This couldn't contrast more with the male, pale and stale line-ups of the Vote Leave and Leave EU campaigns.

    When I look across politics today I see one thing: opportunity. Opportunity for Liberal Democrats and for those who believe in liberal values to be more relevant, more central, and more essential than ever.

    Why? It's simple. The past five months has shown that Britain is dominated by parties that promote illiberal values like blame, division and fear. They want us to turn inwards, blame our problems on foreigners and do nothing to help those most vulnerable in society.

    Thorplands Lake

    Reduced flow of water to the Eastern District lake system is on course to cause a serious health hazard for people living near by, according to a report commissioned by Southfields Residents Association. The reduced flow means pollution entering the area from industrial activity is no longer being diluted and washed away.
