The Hampshire County Council cut of £700,000 in charitable grants to social care groups is extremely short-sighted. So says Romsey's County Councillor, Mark Cooper. "The work done by local charities in the field of social care is extremely cost effective. The reduction in funding to the charities will lead to additional costs having to be picked up by other publicly funded bodies such as the NHS and the Hampshire Constabulary".
We saw last year what a huge boost it gave to the party getting two new excellent MPs elected in Parliamentary by-elections. It's good for their constituents and also good for the party's prospects across the whole country.
We've also seen this month how Conservative MPs have failed to do what our country needs - to remove Boris Johnson from 10 Downing Street.

Whilst most of you were celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee last weekend, a number of us travelled to Dublin, as part of the Lib Dem delegation to the ALDE Congress taking place from 2nd to 4th June - the first physical meeting of our liberal and democratic sister parties from across Europe since our last get together in Athens in October 2019.
It's Carers Week - a chance to recognise, celebrate and, most of all, listen to the stories of unpaid carers. People looking after their loved ones are doing a remarkable job in difficult circumstances. As a carer for most of my life - first for my mum, then for my gran, and now for my disabled son, John - this is something I know all too well.
The Liberal Democrat Parliamentary spokesperson for North West Hants, Luigi Gregori, slams Conservative MPs support for Boris Johnson.
The North West Hants Liberal Democrats had called on the local MP Kit Malthouse and all Conservative MPs to remove Boris Johnson as Prime Minister this week.
