Right to Buy not sustainable shock… not

A new Study by the LGA (Local Government Association) has warned that Right to Buy is at risk of being unsustainable.  For many, this won’t be a shock at all, and I would argue this policy hasn’t been sustainable from day 1.

Campaigns

Liberal Democrats believe in grafting for our communities. We get out there and we get stuck in. We don’t get lost in committees. So we actively campaign on the issues that matter to you. When you elect us to do a job, we unsurprisingly, do a job. This means we work for you and feed issues into our councils rather than just feed you what comes the other way. In short we work as your champion and as your advocate with our local authorities.

You will find information on these campaigns in the news section.

Newsletters & Leaflets

Liberal Democrats work all year round. When we say that we actually do it. Other parties rarely contact you between elections. I will be issuing more in the coming weeks and months.

Here are some of my most recent Focus leaflets:
