On the 12th December vote for Dominic Graham in Braintree and Sam North in Witham for a brighter future.

Liberal Democrat Policies:

Brexit- The best way to protect jobs and preserve vital public services is to STOP BREXIT. If we win a majority in the next parliament, Lib Dems will revoke Article 50 and end this period of instability in our country.

Environment -The Liberal Democrats will crack down on air pollution and invest in renewable energy, creating green jobs across the UK. This is a global emergency. We will work in the EU to lead on this emergency and protect our planet.

NHS - The Liberal Democrats are the only party with a clear plan for the NHS and social care. We will build a better health and care system that is prepared for the future and provides quality care for patients and respects our health workforce. Under our plan, the health and care services will be there for you and your loved ones when they need it, and won't have to stretch budgets to breaking point.

Education -Our plan will ensure children from all backgrounds have the education they deserve, giving them the best chance in life, and make sure teachers can get back to teaching our children.

Economy and Business- Liberal Democrats will harness the innovation of British business and demand multinational corporations pay their fair share in taxation.
We will fight for good paying, secure jobs where workers are not held back by discrimination, inequality or a lack of training.

Communities- Liberal Democrats will reverse Conservative welfare policies that target the poor and vulnerable, recruit more community police officers and tackle the housing crisis by building 300,000 new homes each year, improving rights for renters and increasing funding for local authorities to prevent homelessness.

Both the Conservatives and Labour are stuck in the past. They have had years to build a brighter future and yet too often they are fixated on tribalism, beholden to big business interests, foreign governments and the unions.

Only the Liberal Democrats can build a brighter future for us all.

    A happy and peaceful Chanukah to all Jewish people around the world!

    Chanukah is a special time of the year for so many reasons. It's about solidarity with friends and family. It's about overcoming adversity in impossible circumstances. Most importantly, it's about the power of faith and how it can make wonderful things happen.

    The Essex Energy Switch is about residents coming together to save money on their gas and electricity bills. The more people that register as interested in switching provider, the bigger the potential saving per household. Residents could save as much as £250 a year on their energy bills.

    Registering for the Energy Switch is quick, easy and helps avoid searching for the best deals as all the hard work is done for you. Once the registration window closes, energy companies will bid at an auction to see who can offer the lowest energy tariff.

    Happy New Year!

    Over Christmas and New Year, a team of HQ staff and almost 60 volunteer testers from across the party as well as the team at Prater Raines have been hard at work testing Lighthouse, the party's new Local Party Management tool.

    The feedback from those users has been really encouraging, they've found the system really intuitive and easy to use.

    Today I've announced my team of spokespeople in the House of Commons.

    We'll speak up for the millions of people who voted for the Liberal Democrats in the general election, and the millions more who are dismayed with the actions of this Conservative government.

    Iran is governed by a brutal regime which has been openly hostile to the west.

    Donald Trump has yet again radically and recklessly escalated tensions in an area where peace-keeping was already on a knife edge.

    There is a real danger this will stoke further conflict, undermining peace and stability in the region. Given the severity of the crisis, the Prime Minister must make a statement about the UK's position immediately.

    The UK should not automatically follow whatever position the Trump administration takes, but work with a broader group of concerned states at the United Nations.

    At 5.30 pm on Polling Day I knocked on a door. The young woman who answered told me she wasn't voting Liberal Democrat. I asked who she was voting for and she said, 'either Labour or Conservative - I haven't made my mind up.' It seems strange to dither between two parties with such opposing views without even considering an alternative - but for most of my life people have seen the choice as between the two main parties, and the media have consistently reinforced the two-party system. But how permanent is it?

    As my Presidency draws to an end on New Year's Eve, I wanted to write to you with a final thank you for the extraordinary help that you have given the liberal cause over the last five years.

    To have faced three General Elections and the EU Referendum during these five years - as well as the snap European elections this year - has been unprecedented, draining for everyone who has worked in them. Our candidates and teams, party staff and the many members and supporters who have continuously found that extra bit of energy and effort kept fighting the liberal cause.
