  • Free School Meals
    Article: Jan 26, 2015

    "I have to say we have been very lucky to have had the Liberal Democrats in government; cutting income tax for the lowest paid, marriage equality, defending the Human Rights Act against those in the Conservatives who would wish to repeal the Act, free school meals for primary school children, trying to reform our tired old political system by having a referendum on the electoral system and attempting to reform the House of Lords and finally arguing to remain as part of the European Union in the face of an increasingly Eurosceptic, right wing Conservative Party."

    By Lynne Beaumont, Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate for Folkestone & Hythe

    Article: Jan 9, 2015

    If you want to vote in the General Election and / or Local Elections on 7th May 2015, you must register to vote. It is not automatic.

    In previous years, one person in each house filled out a form for everyone in the house. This is no longer the case.

    Everyone needs to register as an individual, and prove their identity as well to cut down on voting fraud.
