  • Dentist
    Article: Aug 8, 2022

    Our NHS dental system is in tatters, with most surgeries closed to new patients and appointments near impossible to get.

    This Conservative Government is forcing people into costly private care and unsafe DIY dentistry that can leave your teeth in worse condition.

    Put simply, it can't go on.

    A survey today shows that 91% of dental practices in England are not currently open to new patients, with that tally rising to 98% here in the North West. (BBC report here).

  • Ed Davey
    Article: Aug 4, 2022

    Liberal Democrat Leader Ed Davey MP says the Tory leadership contest is taking place when a much bigger one should be:

    "The Tories have trashed the economy, and neither Sunak or Truss have a plan to get us out of this mess.

    "We need a general election to offer the change our country so desperately needs."

    Lib Dem campaigning has helped expose the influence of Russian oligarchs on UK politics, writes Layla Moran on twitter.

    The Lib Dem MP for Oxford West and Abingdon today tweets:

    "For years, Lib Dems have campaigned to ensure that Putin's cronies couldn't funnel their wealth into the UK undetected.

    "Today, the Register of Beneficial Ownership finally goes live.

  • Lib Dems campaigning in Morecambe
    Article: Jul 21, 2022
    The Lib Dems surged from nowhere to over 40% in today's byelection in Morecambe.
    The election for Harbour ward of Lancaster City Council saw the result:
    Lab: 555 (47.9%)
    Lib Dem: 479 (41.3%)
