    Plastics Pollution - Actions Speak Louder than words

    By Kevin Daws

    During the last year the issue of single use plastics has become a major political issue as people, like me, have understood the huge and detrimental impact that plastic is having on our environment. For me the issue came onto my personal radar when I watched David Attenborough's Blue Planet II which highlighted the impact of plastic on marine life and even the BBC launched a campaign called Plastics Watch which had a huge impact on millions of people.

    (NB: This letter was sent to large local retailers. A slightly different version was sent to smaller shops.)

    We are writing to you from the local Liberal Democrats to encourage businesses to take steps to reduce plastic waste in our town. We have been working at the Town and District Council to reduce the presence of single use plastic, improve recycling, and encourage re-usable packaging such as re-usable coffee cups; and we are founder members of the "Plastic Free Lewes" initiative.

    Q - I'm sure being at the centre of a parliamentary by-election is impossibly exciting, but also busy, exhausting and overwhelming, with huge highs and lows. What stands out the most for you from the campaign?

    A - It really was! But incredibly exciting at the same time. I had seen Liberal Democrats gear up for a by-election before, but until you are at the centre of it you really can't appreciate the extent of the support, the enthusiasm and sheer hard work we do as a team to have these great results at by-election. Seeing Lib Dems come together and campaign together - that is definitely what stands out for me.

    The Government's Counter Terrorism Bill has now moved to debate in the House of Lords. The Liberal Democrats opposed the bill in the House of Commons for a simple reason: this bill does little to keep us safe, but a lot to erode the individual freedoms of people in the UK.

    In the future we might have a Government who are prepared to ride roughshod over our freedoms as citizens.

    Will Corbyn stand up to the Tories and their chaotic Brexit? Can Theresa May provide any clarity about what a real Brexit deal might look like?

    No, and no.

    Labour's Conference was riven with divisions over Brexit. Keir Starmer said he wanted to give the people the chance to remain, John McDonnell says this isn't on the table.
