    Do you think we care well enough for the more vulnerable in our society?

    Have we figured out how best to care for people who've experienced bereavement, people who get ill in old age, those with mental ill-health or adults with learning disabilities?

    Ed Davey MP writes:

    My own personal experience tells me we haven't. Whether in my own life or for many constituents in my advice surgeries over 20 years, all too often the care and support systems either don't work well enough or aren't even there at all.

    The Essex Energy Switch is about residents coming together to save money on their gas and electricity bills. The more people that register as interested in switching provider, the bigger the potential saving per household. Residents could save as much as £250 a year on their energy bills.

    Registering for the Energy Switch is quick, easy and helps avoid searching for the best deals as all the hard work is done for you. Once the registration window closes, energy companies will bid at an auction to see who can offer the lowest energy tariff.

    The Liberal Democrats in Chelmsford saw their vote share more than double in yesterday's election, as they were reconfirmed as the main challenger to the Conservatives.

    • Conservative 55% - up 2%
    • Lib Dem 25% - up 13%
    • Labour 18% - down 12%

    Commented Candidate Marie Goldman, "I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone in Chelmsford who placed their trust in me and the Lib Dems yesterday by voting for us. Some people are long-time liberal voters, some were just lending us their vote, and some had switched to vote for us from another party for the very first time.

    Each of them are driving populist, nationalist and authoritarian values. It's no surprise that Boris Johnson, Nigel Farage and Donald Trump have such a special relationship.

    Their unholy alliance has the potential to risk Britain's future. With the three of them working together to stitch up of our democracy, it's important that we stop Boris in his attempt to creep back into No. 10.

    • press for national action on the climate emergency. Lib Dems have already started to make Chelmsford Safer and Greener: http://cm.lib.dm/a91b2N
    • stand up for public services, including NHS, schools and affordable housing. Lib Dems have already started to make Chelmsford Fairer: http://cm.lib.dm/a31b2P

    New analysis has revealed how much UK police rely on vital EU crime-fighting measures.
    Yet Boris Johnson's reckless Brexit plans threaten to cut the UK off.

    Over the past five years, UK police forces and prosecutors have used the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) to arrest over 6,600 criminal fugitives.
