Due to the Covid-19 emergency, we have ceased all campaigning and are asking our members and supporters to concentrate on non-political efforts to help the community weather this crisis. Our councillor Linda Wade in Earl's Court, our Committee, and many of our membership are involved in local groups reaching out to their communities to offer support and assistance to anyone who needs it.
Feel free to get in touch with us with any query, big or small, by emailing email@example.com. Our ward reps throughout K&C are also calling all members to check on their wellbeing.
The Liberal Democrats are delighted to announce that Rabina Khan, previously PPC for Kensington and European parliamentary candidate, has been appointed as the new Communities Special Advisor to their Leader in the House of Lords, Lord Newby.
We are excited to let you know that today Nicola Horlick has been appointed as our prospective candidate for Chelsea & Fulham at the next parliamentary election. This is a game-changer for Chelsea & Fulham, and a chance to remove the Conservative MP, change the parliamentary maths, and get an outstanding Liberal Democrat MP into parliament.
On Satuday the Lib Dems marched alongside thousands of protesters in London to demand better than Brexit. Calling for an end to the no deal nonsense and for the UK to remain in the EU.
Thank you! Across the city the Lib Dems have seen great successes with us coming first across London and achieving a whopping 3 MEPs! In Kensington and Chelsea 36% of voters chose our positive, pro-European message and liberal values.
We couldn't have done this without you, our volunteers and voters! THANK YOU!!
Demand Better in the Dalgarno By-Election on Thursday 21 March 2019
I have lived in the area for 30 years with my husband Joe. We have raised our children here and are active members of many community groups. In my job as a Breastfeeding Counsellor, I run a drop-in clinic at St Peter’s on Kensington Park Road, as well as working at St Mary’s in Paddington.
Along with my neighbours, the local people we’ve met at our street stalls, and my colleagues in the local Party we’re concerned about the rising crime, poor air quality, and the impacts of Brexit on Dalgarno, and on the wider borough.
These are issues that have been raised time and again by the local Conservative and Labour parties during election campaigns, yet for years their Councillors have failed to deliver the change we all need.
Nationally, constant Conservative cuts have left our Police without adequate resources. While Labour Mayor Sadiq Khan has closed our Notting Hill Police Station, and is failing to tackle rising knife violence and moped crime across West London. We want to increase numbers of local Police officers, that work in our communities, and do so in a coordinated strategy with our other public services.
Despite past promises, the air quality around the Westway has not been addressed. Our local Councillor Linda Wade, working with local community groups and universities, has managed to petition and pressure the Council and London Assembly into enforcing vehicle pollution measures - but the Council need to do much more to clean up our air, particularly in the North of our borough.
With what looks like a No Deal Brexit due on 29 March, this election on Thursday 21 March will be the last time you can vote to tell Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn that you will not accept this national disaster. The Liberal Democrats have always been committed to a People’s Vote and will continue to campaign to remain in Europe.
Labour assume this is a safe seat and that their Party can simply choose who will sit in it. Please consider a vote for me on Thursday 21 March, for a new voice to challenge the old status quo in the Council.
With best wishes
BREXIT and EU nationals
Liberal Democrats, passionately believe that as part of the European Union Britain’s relationship with its neighbours is better and stronger. Whatever its imperfections, the EU remains the best framework for co-operating and working effectively to pursue our shared aims.
Our 40+ year membership of the EU has led directly to greater prosperity, increased trade, investment and jobs, better security, and a greener environment. In addition, many EU nationals call our part of London their home, including Earl’s Court.
If you are one of Kensington and Chelsea's many EU residents we encourage you to vote on May 3.
