  • Sudden Drop Leaflet

    By John Derry


    As you are all aware MPs are likely to vote next week on the May Brexit deal. This weekend might be the final chance to influence voters ahead of that vote.

    We don't yet know if there will be an extension of Article 50, or indeed the chance of a Peoples Vote.

    So the Regional Party has commissioned another leaflet to go out this weekend, to try to garner support for the LibDems position. It is in all our interests to deliver as many of these leaflets as we can. 20,000 of the leaflets will be available for delivery in West Suffolk (if you are elsewhere in Suffolk, but want to help, then please contact info@wslibdems.org.uk and we can put you in touch).

    If you have an hour or two (or more!) available this weekend, or early next week, and would be happy to deliver some leaflets, then please send a message to info@wslibdems.org.uk, or chair@wslibdems.org.uk. We will have numerous collection points throughout West Suffolk, so will make it as easy as possible to get the leaflets to you. If you've never dropped leaflets before we can put you with an experienced deliverer.

    This is where we are now. The world is already 1 degree C warmer than pre-industrial levels. Last year saw hurricanes, droughts, floods and fires. We are now heading towards 1.5 degree C.

    Suffolk County Council has paid out thousands of pounds to people in Bury St Edmunds who have fallen over on badly maintained pavements. Local Lib Dem campaigner Ed Allen says "It's shocking that in four years only 10% of the claims for compensation have been successful.

    "Even if any highways repairs are carried out, the slap-dash quality of them means that the repairs do not last very long."

    Article: Jan 25, 2019

    We only have twelve years left to radically alter our impact on the planet and to limit the climate change dangers of extreme weather, drought, floods and poverty.

    It is already ten years since parliament passed the Climate Change Act. It was a radical piece of legislation - made more radical by Lib Dem input.

    Lib Dem MP and former Energy Secretary Ed Davey said: "For the first time, the Act set meaningful and achievable targets to help us decarbonise. It's a model that has been adopted all over the world. The biggest Lib Dem successes came on renewables and European co-operation "
