    • Marlborough High Street
      Article: Jun 24, 2020
      By Kymee Cleasby

      Liberal Democrats for Marlborough have asked for councillors to consider easing restrictions on outdoor spaces for hospitality businesses within the town

      They are asking for a simplified application process to help local Marlborough hospitality businesses to apply to make the best use of outdoor space. Permitting them to increase their potential offering of additional chairs and tables, is urgently needed. Marlborough's famous wide high street makes this particularly feasible

      ( Boris Johnson - my part in his downfall...)

      December 13th recedes a little further into the past.

      In January there are about 800 people in Antiparos, I'm told by Bob and Sue in Soulatso's. Which seems to be the only place serving beer in this small harbour settlement, where most locals live. La Liga in the corner. Messi looking frustrated. Basketball on another T.V. That's what the locals are interested in. Panathinaikos taking on some German team. 15 or so Greek men watch anxiously. All smoking. Playing cards on their tables. People here aren't wild about Germany, it turns out. Maybe that can wait....... Bob and Sue have just got back from England. West Country folk. Lovely gentle Devon accents. They spend most of their time in Antiparos now. Sue fell in love with it years ago. Bob's more of an I don't care where I live as long as it's warm kind of guy. He goes outside to have a smoke. Obviously English.

      Dominic Cummings famously declared that he didn't care about appearances-he'd stuck to the letter of the law and that's all that matters. It sounds like an unsympathetic insurance company wriggling out of a claim but I'm prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt because the real issue, for me, is that appearances do matter. And we'll be able to tell in about a week's time whether I'm right.

      Weekly Whip w/c 11th January

      Monday 11th January

      Monday started off with a statement from the Chancellor who has been notably quiet as of late. He came to the House to update MPs on the most recent packages of support for individuals and businesses during the pandemic.

      For years, this Government have promised our fishing industry a sea of opportunity, but, today, our boats are tied up in harbour, their propellers fouled with red tape manufactured in Whitehall.

      Our boats are tied up in harbour, their propellers fouled with red tape manufactured in Whitehall.

      Boats that are able to go to sea are landing their catches in Denmark-an expensive round trip of at least 72 hours, which takes work away from processors and other shoreside businesses in this country.

    • Article: Jan 14, 2021

      I tabled the Immigration (Health and Social Care Staff) Bill 2019-21, which was due for its second reading on Friday.

      Lib Dems will continue to fight for healthcare workers' rights

      But the Government have decided to axe all sitting Fridays until the end of March, meaning dozens of Private Members Bills will effectively be shut down.

      By Edward Davey

      It's been a huge privilege to come to know many Tamil people in my constituency and across the UK since being elected to Parliament back in 1997, and I can therefore say with total certainty, that the contribution of British Tamils to our country and society has been exemplary, with the hard work, intelligence and dedication of so many amazing British Tamils.

    • Article: Jan 13, 2021

      It is completely unacceptable that parents have received woefully inadequate food parcels in place of free school meals.

      The Secretary of State must urgently investigate this situation.

      The amount of food parents have received to feed their children is not anything like enough to provide an adequate, nutritious lunch every day.
