    Stop North East Lincolnshire Council doubling the council tax of vulnerable people in Cleethorpes & Grimsby.

    The Conservative Council in North East Lincolnshire want to reduce the financial support for council tax from 75% to 50%. This will hit the poorest and most disadvantaged, including the disabled.

    Lib Dems encouraging more neighbourhood watch schemes

    Recently the three Lib Dem Councillors for the East Marsh have been working with the new

    Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator, Glyn Atkinson. Glyn is keen to see new Neighbourhood Watch Groups set-up in the East Marsh ward.

    It is a well-known fact that in areas where Neighbourhood Watch Groups have been set up, there is a reduction in crime and people tend to feel much safer.

    Following pressure from the Lib Dems the Anti-Social Behaviour Team doubled in size

    For many years the East Marsh has been blighted by anti-social behaviour and local agencies have been slow to act upon residents' concerns. Just before the recent local elections - the Council doubled the size of ASB team. This means that there is now a named ASB coordinator (Tom Shaw) on the East Marsh.

    Action on Rogue Landlords

    The Lib Dem campaign to tackle rogue landlords is bearing fruit. North East Lincolnshire Council is now conducting raids on illegal Houses of Multiple Occupancy (HMOs).

    Steve and Kay have been on a number of raids. Steve said: "One of the houses that were raided only had two bedrooms but there were eight mattresses in the house, and it is believed that at least 8 individuals were sleeping in the property. These rogue landlords exploit vulnerable people, forcing them to live in sometimes horrific conditions. We will not tolerate people being crammed into unsafe properties putting lives at risk."

    London is a liberal city. Over 250 languages are spoken in the capital, making it the most linguistically diverse city in the world. As host to one of the largest Pride events in Europe and the biggest carnival outside Rio, London and its residents celebrate diversity and embrace difference.

    London is also a Remain city. It is home to a third of all the EU citizens living in the UK and every sector in the capital - from hoteliers to health-workers, builders to bankers - relies on EU migrants to thrive.

    Congratulations to Jane Dodds and the Welsh Lib Dems for the brilliant result in Brecon and Radnorshire! Thank you to everyone of you who helped, both by appearing in the constituency to knock on doors and deliver leaflets, and for those who phoned, helped with admin tasks from a distance too. Jane is already showing that she will be an exceptional MP, joining Jo Swinson's parliamentary party.

    There are plenty of similarities between Boris Johnson and Donald Trump. They say imitation is the highest form of flattery - maybe it's Johnson's way of sucking up for that trade deal. Which probably makes him the only person in the country looking forward to chlorinated chicken.

    In fact, in a speech a while, Trump said "they call [Johnson] Britain Trump and people are saying that's a good thing. They like me over there."*

    People are fed up of seeing politicians arguing for things that put their party's interest above the country. We have to come together to prevent Boris Johnson crashing us out the EU without a deal. I'm proud of the work that the Liberal Democrats have done with MPs from all parties and none to make stopping Brexit a real possibility.

    Coming straight off the back of the Brecon and Radnorshire campaign, we launched our election campaign for Sheffield Hallam at the weekend, with more than 100 people who joined us to knock on doors, deliver leaflets, and help with clerical work in the office.

    It seems like promising Lib Dem by-elections are like buses - you wait for a long time and then two come along at once!
