    A general election is happening - let's win it in Rutland and Melton and help stop Brexit and start building a fairer, more open and better Britain!

    A liberal environmental policy

    Some thoughts by Dr John Twidell

    Our present life style is the cause of climate change and ecological disruption. The impending dangers are known and considered unacceptable by the UN, the EU and the UK.

    Dr Carol Weaver has been a Liberal Democrat member for many years. Having previously worked as a university lecturer in Politics & International Relations, she is currently the chair of the cross-party Leicestershire & Rutland European Movement.

    The election for a new county councillor for Ryhall and Casterton has been announced for Thursday 12th September.
