    Liberal Democrats in Windsor are calling upon the constituency's MP, Adam Afriyie, to resign over Brexit.

    In the European referendum in June 2016, the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead voted convincingly to remain, whilst failing businessman Mr Afriyie strongly advocated Brexit.

    However, responding to a letter writing campaign organised by campaign group "Windsor for EU", Mr Afriyie mysteriously claimed that Windsor Constituency had voted to leave.

    Then I'll begin a tale of those who are almost invisible, the homeless.

    Homelessness has risen significantly over recent years with rough sleeping doubling since 2010. It is shocking that the average age of death of a street homeless person is 47! (81 years for the rest of us in England). The needs of the homeless are complex, but failing to prevent homelessness not only has a devastating effect on the individual, but also on our already overstretched and underfunded health and social care services and the criminal justice system, costing an estimated annual gross of £1 billion.

    The decision today to expand Heathrow will come as a fresh blow to East Berkshire residents. As Tim Farron has said it's a betrayal of environment and communities.

    The Heathrow decision has shown how the Government is out of touch with the very people they were supposed to serve especially our local MP's including the Prime Minister herself who has gone back on her own words.

  • Parking
    Article: Oct 7, 2016

    Ask Windsor residents what they like about living here and you're likely to hear about the sense of community, the sense of history and (aside from the planes above head), the tranquility and open space. However, ask what people don't like and parking comes pretty near to the top of the list.

    The simple fact is that most of Windsor's residential roads were built before cars ere even invented. We now have a situation where many families have more than one car. There just isn't the space. This means that residents are often left parking a substantial distance from their home or parking illegally. Ask whether the latter is acceptable, and whether fines should be enforced, and you're in for a heated debate!

    It is depressing when the adversarial style of politics which is such a feature of British democracy generates more heat than light. It all too often does. One reason for this is, I believe, the historical domination of politics by males. This has meant that frequently testosterone has rather too much say in determining our political behaviour and the tone of the debates that take place. The rudeness and boorish behaviour that I have experienced in the Council Chamber was not, on the numerous occasions I witnessed it, an edifying experience. So, at one level, at least, it seems to me that we should welcome Theresa May as our second woman Prime Minister. We need more women in politics and more women in top jobs. Her appointment should also remind us of how much more work we as a party must do to increase our own diversity so that we can better represent society as a whole. However, her previous record as Home Secretary is particularly illiberal and does not fill us with optimism when she talks about her 'one nation' aspirations.

  • The Acre
    Article: Jul 30, 2016

    Michael Caine reputedly said, "Not a lot of people know that." Now, there are many things of which this could be said but high on list would be the Windsor Liberal Club - or The Acre as it is also known.

    There has been a Liberal Club in Windsor for over one hundred and twenty seven years and for much of that time it has been at 4 Victoria Street, where it is currently This site is opposite the barracks and in front of Bachelor's Acre.
