    Just a few days after their election victory Royal Borough Conservatives have moved to give themselves even more or your money.

    The increased allowances are being brought about by the creation of more posts on the council with additional responsibilities allowances. Increasing these allowances has been a recurring theme of the Conservative administration, with each new election, seeing the Conservatives hand themselves more goodies.

    Over 3 years on since the agreement to extend the car park, RBWM have not decided how this essential piece of infrastructure for Eton is to be financed.

    The proposal for the extension of Meadow Lane car park in Eton has been around for over 25 years. In 2011 with the shortage of resident parking and the further loss of resident parking spaces through the redevelopment of Rafts Boathouses the Brocas Residents' Group lobbied the developer and the Borough for the extension of this car park as a resolution to resident parking and other parking issues in Eton.

    Ofsted has graded Windsor & Maidenhead's failing council as "Requires Improvement" across all areas of its children's social services.

    The Conservative Council is revealed yet again, to be cutting corners in those areas of its responsibility which are less visible and only affect a minority of vulnerable residents.

    Article: May 10, 2015

    5000 new members have joined the Liberal Democrats in the two days since the general election.

    Windsor's Membership Officer, Andrew Clemo says,

    "It is simply incredible and it shows no sign of slowing down at the moment.

    Nationally we've had 5000 new members in 2 days.

    In Windsor we've already seen membership jump by just under 20% in the same time period."

  • General Election Result 2

    We now need Proportional Representation, that's the clear message of the General Election result.

    Between them the Liberal Democrats, UKIP and the Greens clocked up a quarter of the vote on Thursday 7th May, but were rewarded with just 10 seats.

    The choice in the AV referendum in 2011was a choice between the Conservative's first and second choice of unfair voting system.

    Nationally we've now got a right wing Conservative government again, despite less than a quarter of the electorate as a whole voting for it. Locally strong strands of local political opinoin are also unrepresented in the council chamber.

    This problem has infact been with us for nearly 30 years, as far back as the 1980's the Liberal Alliance was polling as strongly as Labour in England, but getting less than a tenth of the number of seats.

    Support for proportional representation has come from some unexpected sources, with well known right-wing Conservative Euro MP, Daniel Hannan, a favourite amongst local Conservatives, calling for proportional representation in an article he wrote for website, Conservative Home, in April.

    If you agree with the Lib Dems, Greens, UKIP and Daniel Hannan that we need Proportional Representation, then consider supporting the Electoral Reform Society and Unlock Democracy's electoral reform petition here:

    Dear Voter

    The election in Windsor is between the Liberal Democrats and the Conservatives.

    A vote for Labour here will only help elect a Conservative MP.

    Recently our Conservative MP, Adam Afriyie, said that MPs should be paid £225,000 per year. This shows how out of touch he is with the people he represents. Liberal Democrats believe it is a privilege to serve in public office, which is why in our local election campaign we have promised to cut councillors' allowances in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead in half.

    MPs need to live in their constituencies rather than being merely occasional visitors. I have lived in Eton with my family for the last thirty years and my children went to local schools. As an RBWM Councillor I have worked tirelessly for local residents. If elected, I will hold surgeries across the constituency where you can meet me every week. You will see me around!

    The choice in this election is clear: Labour will borrow too much, risking the economy. The Tories will cut too much, threatening public services and sacrificing the less well off.

    As part of the coalition, Liberal Democrats have created stable government and stood up for fairness by blocking Tory plans to run schools for profit. In government, we have championed the Pupil Premium and cut income tax for low and middle earners.

    In the next parliament, Liberal Democrats will guarantee equal care and waiting times for mental health as well as for physical health, by increasing spending on the NHS.

    We will ensure that every child is taught by a qualified teacher and protect spending on nurseries, schools and colleges.

    We will balance the budget by 2018, protecting the economic recovery and bringing down Britain's debt.

    Only the Liberal Democrats will build a stronger economy and a fairer society by creating opportunity for everyone.

    Best wishes

    Sincerely,

    George Fussey
    Liberal Democrat ParliamentaryCandidate for Windsor

The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no-one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance, or conformity.
Many people within the Liberal Democrats locally and more widely, and indeed across the wider national communities within the UK - including political opponents - have been saddened to hear of the death of former party leader Charles Kennedy, at age 55. He had become the youngest MP at the time when he won the Ross, Cromarty and Skye seat in 1983, aged 23, and had a solid reputation for fairmindedness, decency and good humour among his many other talents.
