    "At the heart of the West Division lies 250 acres of Tunbridge Wells and Rusthall Commons, the lungs of the town. I'm a Freehold Tenant of the Manor of Rusthall. That sounds a bit pompous, but just means that I have a house that fronts onto the Common and was once able to graze my sheep!

    By Rob Bird, Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group at Kent County Council

    Last month's Conservative budget was not good enough for the people of Kent, and not good enough for Kent.

    The Liberal Democrats demand better.

    Covid-19 has highlighted the value of caring for each other. Now, as we begin to emerge from the lockdown, we need to help those most affected by the pandemic and lockdown. At the same time, we need a better quality of life for all, with clean air and green space that everyone can appreciate.

The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.

We champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals, we acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents to the full. We aim to disperse power, to foster diversity and to nurture creativity.

We believe that the role of the state is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions which affect their lives.

We believe the UK is better off in the EU, and we will fight the next election on a clear and unequivocal promise to restore British prosperity and role in the world, with the United Kingdom in the European Union, not out.
