    SERVICES CUT, WHILST LOCAL CONSERVATIVES SPLASH-THE-CASH ON TAXPAYER PAID PARTY PROPAGANDA BANNERS AND PROMOTIONAL VIDEOS


    Under current Conservative plans the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead's debt will rise to £240 million over the next four years.
    The growing debt is a result of poor decision making in the Royal Borough, such as the recent £100,000 spent on lamp post banners and a promo feel good video, which were really tax-payer funded party propaganda for the Conservative council.
    Conservative councillors were thrown into confusion earlier in the year when it emerged they had overspent this years budget by £8.8 million (about £220 per household). Opposition councillors had previously pointed out the problems with the council budget, but the Conservatives weren't prepared to listen to other people.
    The burden of interest payments on growing debt has to be funded from council tax, eating up money badly needed by frontline services. With interest rates currently at all-time lows and with the value of the pound likely to drop post-Brexit, there is a big risk of significant interest rate rises.

    Nursery schools, such as the outstanding Lawns Nursery in Imperial Road, are fearful for their futures as the Conservative government plans to cut their funding.

    In 2017 the Tories introduced the Early Years Funding Formula for all childcare providers, which sought to make all early years providers receive the same amount of money. Realising their plans would leave council run nursery schools without enough money the tories provided transitional funding - but only until the end of the 2020 school year.

    The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead just spent £100K promoting the Conservative Council, with £22,000 of illegally errected lamp post banners and an £80,000 propaganda film.

    We've all seen Windsor going downhill in the 12 years since the Tories have been in charge.

    What if they'd spent £100K making the town a better place instead?

    Our council just spent £100K promoting themselves, with banners on lamp posts and a promotional film, when we've all seen Windsor going downhill in the 12 years the Tories have been in charge.

    What if they'd spent £100K making the town a better place instead? What would you do with £100K that would deliver real value to residents?

    Liberal Democrats in Windsor, Maidenhead and Slough are mourning the loss of long-standing colleague and former Royal Borough Councillor, Richard Fagence.

    Richard served as a party officer at local and regional level, having first joined the Liberal Party in 1964. He also acted as a trustee and secretary of the Windsor Liberal Club, helping to provide the leadership which sees the club flourishing today as The Acre. Richard was a member of the English Liberal Democrats' national council and attended most Liberal and Liberal Democrat party conferences for over 50 years; on one famous occasion in later years being caught on national TV taking a well earned nap during a prominent speech, much to everyone's amusement.
