Surrey Lib Dems slam Tory Council's £1m raid on sick and disabled

Liberal Democrat Councillors have strongly criticised Conservative-run Surrey County Council for agreeing to hike adult social care charges by over Personal Independence Payment disabled elderly Surrey£1m for disabled and vulnerable residents. The new charges, due to take effect from 3rd October 2016, have been pushed through by the Conservative-run Council, despite a consultation which showed strong opposition to the plans by residents and disability groups. 

Southern Rail in Chaos

sack southern rail caterham Southern Rail services across the south east have been thrown into chaos effecting millions of commuters. Caterham has not been as badly hit as other areas, but many trains have been cancelled from Upper Warlingham. A lot of commuters from Caterham use that line for fast trains.
Cllr David Lee who commutes regularly says, “I’m now catching the train half an hour or an hour earlier just in case a train is cancelled. I avoid trying to change trains a East Croydon as trains are so packed (or get cancelled)”
David continued, “Also I’ve experienced getting on a train on Victoria and the train gets delayed then cancelled and no information is given.”
Local commuters have put up with Southern Rail's incompetence and thoroughly dreadful service for far too long. The chaos needs to end NOW! Please sign Lib Dem MP Tom Brakes petition below calling for the abysmal Southern Rail to be sacked:

Open, Tolerant and United

tim farron Lib Dem The Liberal Democrats are the only party fighting to keep Britain open, tolerant and united. We are the real voice of opposition to the Conservative Brexit Government.

People have been let down for decades by short-termist politicians who put the needs of one part of society above the rest. Now, in the wake of the Brexit vote those divisions are more exposed than ever before. With our country facing huge challenges – from inequality and injustice to an NHS in crisis and an economy in jeopardy – we are left with a reckless, divisive and uncaring Conservative Government and Labour fighting among themselves with no plan for the economy or the country.

What we stand for
