    I want to talk about something that we shouldn't have to talk about in 2019.

    It should be a given that our schools have the funding they need to give our children the best start in life.

    But that's not the case. The Conservatives repeatedly tell us that schools have never had more money. That they've never had it as good.

    When my son Gabriel was born, I didn't imagine that he'd have quite such an active political career before his first birthday.

    But now he's experienced one anti-Trump march, two People's Vote marches, one debate in the House of Commons chamber and one very infamous breach of the pairing arrangements in Parliament. He's probably the most politically active baby in the country.

    I'd like to wish all of our Sikh members, supporters and candidates a Happy Vaisakhi.

    I know that today is a very special day for you as you celebrate not only the year that Sikhism was born as a collective faith, the anniversary of the founding of the Khalsa (the collective name given to Sikhs who've been baptised), but also the start of the Sikh New Year.

    We're now fighting TWO elections. Together, we're going to deliver the best results in both elections that we've had in years!
    On 2nd May we need to gain more councils and councillors across England. On 23rd May, we want to elect a Liberal Democrat MEP in every part of the country.

    Our local election campaign is well underway. But we've got a lot to do to ensure our European Election campaign gets off to a flying start too.

    The time he campaigned for Roy Moore in Alabama. When nine women had come forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct.

    Fortunately, Moore lost the seat to Democrat challenger Doug Jones. Which is good, because much like Farage himself, Moore's kind of the worst.

    I feel proud that my home county is recognised as one of the best places in the U.K. to live. However, it is not something that we should take for granted.

    The plans to significantly increase the housing stock at St George's Barracks and Woolfox Depot will inevitably have a marked effect on local people's lives. It is imperative that plans for such large-scale development take full account of the current and future needs of local communities to ensure the standard of delivery of local services is safeguarded.

    Brexit latest

    Brexit is still paralysing government and parliament. But I think a significant corner has been turned with the decision of the European Council to extend the timetable for Brexit until Halloween on Oct 31st.

    The sense of drama and crisis has abated somewhat, now that Brexit Day is no longer imminent.

    It's our job to win big for fellow Remainers across the country in these European elections.

    Last night Theresa May met with EU leaders and, in a dashing blow to her plans, was forced to agree to extend Article 50 to October 31st, with the ability to review at the end of June.

    She's still doing the hokey-cokey and dancing around the issue but as a result, it's clear European elections are incredibly likely this Spring.

    Joanna has lived in Oakham for over 20 years, and her three children attended schools in the town. Her elderly mother also lives in Oakham. She has always taken a keen interest in local issues, whether fighting inappropriate building such as houses on the allotments by Brooke Road railway crossing, or by supporting bids for additional local health funding.

    I am delighted to have been chosen as the Liberal Democrat candidate for the Billesdon & Tilton Wardof Harborough District Council elections on Thursday 2nd May 2019.

    I have lived at Illston on the Hill with my wife and family since 1984. I came here as Leicester's second Professor of Pathology and from 1999-2008 I was the Head of the Medical School. I have previous experience as a District Councillor having spent 3 years on Gateshead Metropolitan District Council where I was the Deputy Group Leader.

    Rural Leicestershire has been dominated by the Conservative Party for far too long. Your Local County Councillor, Simon Galton has broken the mould for this area and now is the time for change at District Council level.

    It's clear: the last thing Billesdon & Tilton needs is more Conservative influence.

    Elections in our area are nearly always a close contest between the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats. Other parties simply cannot win here. Labour, UKIP, and the Greens rarely contest this Ward.Many of their supporters are giving the Liberal Democrats and myself their vote this time to stop the Conservatives from winning.

    What I am for:
    1. Remaining in the European Union.
    2. Greater Political accountability - Councillors must keep in touch.
    3. Planning decisions must be considered by the full planning committee if the local Parish Council/Meeting objects
    What I am against:

    1. I strongly oppose the proposed A46 Leicester East Relief Road.

    2. All forms of discrimination. I am appalled by Labour's apparent anti-semitism.

    P.S. Remember, only the Liberal Democrats and myself can stop the Conservatives here.
