    We're on the verge of destroying our planet. Climate change is very real, and we need to make significant changes to our lifestyles if we want to avert a climate catastrophe. One such change is we need to significantly reduce the distance that food travels from the farm to our plates. We need to buy local.

    Skills-based migration sounds like a great thing on the face of it. You make sure that anyone coming to your country contributes to the bits of your economy that the Government knows needs workers. You also make sure that those workers are highly skilled workers and that they won't be a drain on our safety net. We end up with enough bankers, engineers, and doctors without flooding the country with so-called cheap labour.

    Kent Count Council are undertaking a Libraries , Registration and Archives Draft Strategy 2019-2022 Consultation from 21 November 2018 to 29 January 2019.

    The Kent Libraries LRA Strategy Consultation is available online and hard copies available at all Kent Libraries.

    Local Lib Dem Campaigner Tim Prater commented:

The Liberal Democrats are the only party fighting to keep Britain open, tolerant and united.

Open means open-hearted, open-minded, forward-looking, modern, green, internationalist and pro-European. We believe Britain is at its best when it is creative, innovative and outward-looking, comfortable in the fast-changing modern world and open to the opportunities and challenges of globalisation and the digital revolution.

Tolerant means diverse, compassionate and generous. We will always fight injustice and stand up for the underdog, the outsider, the individual, the minority and the vulnerable against the powerful.

United means we will always put the interests of the whole United Kingdom first. We reject the divisions in society, whether between young and old, urban and rural, leave and remain, or between regions and nations. We believe we are stronger - as communities, as a country and as a world - when we work together in our common interest.
