    A VOTE FOR LABOUR IS A VOTE FOR SLEEPLESS NIGHTS ACROSS WINDSOR, ASCOT AND THE ROYAL BOROUGH

    The Liberal Democrats' candidate for Windsor in 2015 has called for voters across the Royal Borough to boycott Labour in the upcoming local and parliamentary elections if they value a good night's sleep.

    The move is in response to the Labour Party's plans for a third runway at Heathrow which will increase and extend the aircraft noise misery already experienced by most people in Windsor.

    Nationally the Conservatives have refused to say where they stand on Heathrow, instead they have set up an "Airports Commission" to consider the possibilities and report back after the election.

    "Labour's plans for an extra runway at Heathrow represent a significant threat to the quality of life for people in Windsor and other nearby areas. People in Windsor already know the misery of aircraft noise too well, but recent experiments have extended this misery to people around Ascot as well. Labour's third runway can only extend the aircraft noise misery over a wider area and more hours of the day."

    says the Lib Dems' Parliamentary Candidate George Fussey.

    George Fussey is also worried about the effects of pollution caused by emissions, not only from the aircraft but also the traffic congestion on the ground.

    "Living in Central Windsor I'm only too aware of the constant noise form aircraft landing and taking off from Heathrow. I'm proud that whereas the Labour Party are offering Windsor more noise and pollution, the Lib Dems are committed opposing Heathrow Expansion. It's just a shame that nationally the Conservative Party refuse to tell the public where they stand on Heathrow."

    says Julian Tisi, who is standing for the Liberal Democrats in Clewer East in the Royal Borough Elections.

    Windsor Liberal Democrats are launching a new, "No Heathrow 3", petition which can be signed online at: http://SignMe.org.uk/1082.

    Councillor makes call on pollution levels in his town over fears they may be reaching dangerous levels.

    Cllr Fussey teaches biology at Eton College as well as serving as curator at the famous school's Natural History Museum.

    He raised his concerns at this month's meeting of Eton Town Council - only weeks after it was revealed that Arthur Road in Windsor was suffering pollution levels well above those official recommended.

    Recent Experiments have subjected Ascot and surrounding areas to increased aircraft noise.

    Residents in Windsor already know the misery that is caused by incessant aircraft noise.

    The Liberal Democrats remain the only government party who are firmly united locally, nationally and in Europe against expansion at Heathrow.

    Labour propose to build a third runway whilst many Conservative MPs representing constituencies outside of the Heathrow flight path are firmly in favour.

    Local Lib Dems are proposing that the council works towards making the council contactable 24 hours a day, rather than just available during working hours.

    Simon Werner said, "With 24-hour shopping, 24-hour banking and 24-hour telephone enquiry lines, it seems unreasonable that we cannot contact the council on the phone 24 hours a day, every day."

    2.1% council tax cut in the Royal Borough approved in debate described as a 'pantomime'

    THE annual budget debate was mocked as a 'pantomime' by veteran Liberal Democrat Cllr Simon Werner yesterday.

    A total of 30 Royal Borough councillors took their turn at Maidenhead Town Hall to praise or damn the ruling Conservative's much touted 2.1% cut in council tax for 2015/16. But Cllr Werner, who represents Pinkneys Green ward as a Liberal Democrat, mocked 'creepy' councillors he accused of lining up to praise their party leaders.

    Liberal Democrat Education Minister David Laws has said:

    "When we came into Coalition Government, tough decisions had to be taken because, as Liam Byrne famously told me, there was no money left.

    "The Conservative assumption in 2010 was for a cash freeze in the schools budget - a whopping 10% cut in real terms over the course of the Parliament.

    New research commissioned by the council shows that as much as 10,000 tonnes of food in the Royal Borough is binned and ends us in landfill every year.

    The Measurement Evaluation Learning Research analysed recycling and refuse bins from 200 households in the Royal Borough over a week last November 2014. The figures were then extrapolated to generate equivalent figures for the whole borough over a year.

    Food waste put in general refuse bins and sent to landfill costs local tax payers twice as much to dispose of as the same food waste placed in the Royal Borough's black food waste bins.

    Food waste collected in the black caddies is turned into a bio-gas which is then burnt to generate electricity and fed to the National Grid at a nearby plant in Oxfordshire. The residue is used as fertilizer.

    And while more than half of us think we don't actually waste any food, the average household throws away around £60 a month of good food.

    Food waste at landfill sites also damages the environment as it rots producing harmful greenhouse gas methane.

    All types of raw and cooked food can go in the black food caddies.
