Ed Davey’s message to voters

Ed Davey has issued this message to everyone who will be voting tomorrow:

Covid has reminded all of us just how important our local community is, and by electing a Liberal Democrat, people will be choosing a hardworking local champion for their community.

People also appreciate now more than ever their local green spaces and their community’s wider environment so I’m proud how Liberal Democrats have always led the way in putting the environment at the heart of our campaigns.

Across the country Labour and the Conservatives too often sit on their hands while our green spaces are sold off to the highest bidder and our children breathe dangerous polluted air.

In contrast, the Liberal Democrat environment record in local government is unbeatable, whether it’s delivering the country’s first clean air zone outside of London to topping the country’s leaderboard for recycling rates.

So if you want to get things done in your community and you want your local environment protected, vote Liberal Democrat.

    Best of luck to all you serious campaigners. Around here we’ve had nothing at all from the Lib Dem or Labour candidates, either for the County Council or the PCC! I wouldn’t vote for any PCC candidate on principle as, in my opinion, it’s a daft idea. Bring back the Police Authorities! (I did submit an article on the subject last week; but the editors turned it down!)

    As for the County Council, just to think that, in 2013, we retained both seats, mine included. Mind you, back then, voters didn’t just hear from the Lib Dems at election time. Now it would appear that they don’t even hear then either!

  • I wish everyone luck who is standing tomorrow.

    I feel more of the party’s election messaging should have been along the lines of “here is a Lib Dem run council that achieved X, Y and Z highlighting good policies.

  • I was much encouraged by the number of posters up in Lands End division in Cornwall. My fingers are permanently crossed for Andrew George and Dan Rogerson winning their seats. Also Florence MacDonald in Pool and Tehidy as people like her are our future. But seeing more of SirEd over the last month would have been nice.

    Since there is not really much to discuss now until the results are in – let’s be optimistic and take a look at the history [until 1985] of Sir Edward’s likely new home from 2024:
