Protect the NHS including Broomfield's A&E

Cut congestion (better bus, pedestrian + cycle facilities)

Bring more jobs to Chelmsford and affordable homes

Involve the public more

Conservatives...

Raised your council tax but didn't spend the extra cash!

Stashed away £20 million in the council bank account

Delivered traffic chaos by giving in to developers

Made too many decisions behind closed doors

    Article: Sep 17, 2018

    Essex County Council has finally agreed to a full review of the notorious Army & Navy roundabout. Last week, in a dramatic about face, they closed the flyover indefinitely, after Chelmsford Liberal Democrats published a video showing that the structure was more damaged than the Council had admitted. One of the support columns appears to have moved, since the flyover was closed in August. Watch the video here.

  • Social care
    Article: Sep 7, 2018

    The Local Government Association has released a 'Green Paper' on Adult Social Care. We need urgent action to save the services caring for older and disabled people from collapse.

    Cllr Mike Mackrory, Lib Dem Leader of the Opposition at Essex County Council, welcomed the Green Paper. He said, "This nationwide consultation must kick-start a desperately-needed debate on how to pay for adult social care. These services are at breaking point, following years of cuts by councils and rising demand and rising costs for care and support."

  • The union flag flying next to the EU flag.

    By Tom Brake

    The Government have refused to guarantee that MPs will see the full impact analysis of a "no-deal" Brexit before the final vote on departure from the EU. This makes a mockery of the discredited mantra 'Taking Back Control'.

    The Government must stop these murky games and pledge to release this analysis.

    Conscience should come before one's own ambitions; and equality, tolerance & justice are far more important than one's own career path.

    Politics surely should be about policies and not personal attacks - what a shame it hasn't remained that way? What I did not realise is that this was just the beginning of a long and rocky ride over the coming months where I saw a real lurch to the right, in the words of the former Conservative MP, Stephen Phillips QC, the Conservative party has started to mould itself into 'UKIP-Lite'.
