Here it's Lib Dem or Conservative

Lib Dems...

# Stop Brexit and keep Britain open and prosperous.

# Bold action on climate emergency; protect our environment.

# Fight to give our schools and hospitals the funds they need.

Conservatives...

# Disastrous 'No Deal' Brexit that will make Britain worse off.

# Heartless cuts to NHS and schools - services on their knees.

# Divided and cosying up to Donald Trump and Nigel Farage.

    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.

    Chelmsford is already safer, greener, fairer and better connected http://cm.lib.dm/a71b2P with a Liberal Democrat-led council, but could do so much more with Marie Goldman as Chelmsford's MP.

    Lib Dem MPs will:
    • 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.

    Yesterday, a document was released that lays out the details of talks involving UK and US officials.

    The documents are horrifying.

    They reveal what looks like a deal cooked up between the Tories and Donald Trump that puts our NHS on the table. This, despite Johnson's repeated insistence that the NHS is not for sale.

    Article: Nov 27, 2019

    Only 77.4% of patients arriving at A&E in Chelmsford were treated or admitted within four hours in October 2019, according to damning figures published by NHS England.

    This is well below the official target of 95% of patients attending A&E being admitted, transferred or discharged within four hours.

    Nationally, the 95% waiting target hasn't been met since July 2015. Only 83.6% of patients arriving at A&E across England were treated or admitted in four hours in October, the worst-ever performance since a target was introduced in 2004.

    Liberal Democrat candidate for Chelmsford Marie Goldman said:

    "It is shameful that patients in Chelmsford are being abandoned, be it waiting for hours for treatment in A&E or for months in pain for routine operations.

    "These figures reveal the Conservatives' dismal record on the NHS. For the past four years they have utterly failed to invest properly in our health service, leaving local hospitals underfunded, overstretched and understaffed.

    "Their extreme Brexit would make a dismal situation worse by driving away the EU nurses the NHS desperately needs.

    "The Liberal Democrats will stop Brexit and build a brighter future. We will invest an extra £35 billion in our NHS through a penny on income tax and develop a national recruitment strategy to ensure we never again suffer shortages of nurses, doctors and other health professionals."
