    Federal Conference of Liberal Democrats - 14th - 17th September 2019

    What's on Saturday and Sunday at Lib Dem Conference?

    As Boris Johnson pursues his 'Bullingdon Club' tactics, shuts down parliament and plots to avoid complying with the new No Deal Brexit law, Liberal Democrats will be beginning their four days in the spotlight and hopefully enjoying some sunshine. Already buoyed by stunning electoral successes and with six additional MP's since the last Conference plus 60,000 new members and supporters, the Party is ready present to the Country an alternative to chaos, a disintegrating Brexit Government and a Tory Party Leader and Prime Minister devoid of moral and parliamentary authority

    Roll back the cuts to Woodbridge & district's vital bus services 64 and 800

    You can read more and sign the Change.org petition here: http://chng.it/B54vxKdw

    At the beginning of September, First buses cut completely their hourly 800 park and ride extension which provided a fast service to central Ipswich from Woodbridge and Rendlesham.

    At the same time the company made significant changes to the the timetabling and route of their complementary 64 route: the buses no longer stop at the Woodbridge Peterhouse estate, and the last bus leaves Ipswich an hour earlier (at 17.50). Early-morning buses are also affected, as is hospital travel.

    First declare this is because these services were under-used. We, the passengers who use them, deny this. The services were both well-used and vital to many people with few or no transport choices. They were, however, under-advertised (the 800 did not even carry the Woodbridge -Rendlesham destinations on the six maps that were posted inside each bus).

    The impact of these cuts is immense. Timetable and route changes mean that workers are finding difficulties travelling to and from work. Disabled and elderly people, and young parents with buggies are having to walk up to 25 min to a stop. It is no longer possible for non-drivers to visit patients in Ipswich hospital in the evening.

    We ask that these cuts and changes be immediately reversed!

    Thanks to your support this petition has a chance at winning! We only need 150 more signatures to reach the next goal - can you help?

    Thankyou for signing this Petition

    Take the next step!

    "So we want an election before the end of the year but I'm afraid we can't trust the Prime Minister to abide by the law of the land and request an extension to negotiations with Europe. So we need to hold his feet to the fire until he does and until we have seen an end to the no deal aspirations of this reckless Prime Minister. That means waiting until November before we choose a new Parliament" (Willie Rennie).

    Your MP's - Peter Aldous Conservative MP for Waveney

    Local farming MP Peter Aldous, who went from Remain to "an exciting future" under Theresa May's Leave Deal and now supports his failing Premier's No Deal, Leave at any cost prospectus, claims to represent the interests of farming and fishing...

    Whilst raising the issues of the sustainability of the seas and concerns of small scale fishermen in the House, he now pursues a course of No Deal which will neither protect UK waters from 'foreign' fishing, sustain fish stocks or from the devastating impact of EU import tariffs on UK farm exports as his Government plans to open the door to foreign food imports including chemically washed chicken from the US. So much for, "this new partnership should ensure that Britain retains sovereignty over a number of areas; and in particular for Waveney the areas of fishing and farming, which for local businesses, farmers and fishermen is a key concern which has been expressed to me".

    The Liberal Democrats have gained another MP in former Tory, Philip Lee who crossed the floor of the House at the start of a critical week for parliament and the country and when fears for a no deal Brexit were forcing the currency closer to parity with the dollar and the Euro.
