    We have received the following request for comments from Rebecca Smith at the Local Government Boundary Commission for England.
    Rutland County Councillor Gale Waller has the following comment to make:
    "It would be good to have as wide a view as possible.

    ... not just by businesses but by some political parties especially the Conservatives?

    Donald Trump and the Brexit campaign reportedly used personal data to help them win by spending huge amounts to send personalised ads. Companies such as Facebook and Cambridge Analytica have your data and profiles from social media and can target you on an individual basis.

    The fact checkers agree that the Lib Dem's manifesto tells the truth.

    1. "Nearly two-thirds of NHS trusts ended the last financial year in deficit"

    Our policies include a second referendum on Brexit, increased money for the NHS, keeping our country green and, as always, keeping education at the heart of our agenda. It was our party that introduced the free lunches that the Tories now want to snatch away. We have always been a party that supported environmental policies such as stopping climate change and fighting against air pollution.
