    Green Liberal Democrat Motion to Lib Dem Spring Conference 2021


    Conference condemns the Chancellor`s recent decision to cut International Aid by one third from
    0.7% of Gross National Income (GNI) as a backward step both morally and economically for the UK
    and one that will reverse progress in the many countries receiving such aid, making it more difficult
    for the poorest nations to meet climate change challenges.

    Green Liberal Democrat Motion to Spring Conference

    It was quite a shock to me to see the Chancellor`s decision, in the November budget a few weeks ago, to reduce the commitment to International Aid by 30% from the `magic` figure of 0.7% of Gross National Income (GNI).

    You may find it strange that I admit to `shock` given the appalling governmental record since the 2019 General election. A record of incompetence, cronyism, neglect and goodness knows what else - certainly the worst Government I have known in my lifetime of watching politics pretty closely since standing as a Liberal candidate in a mock election at my school in 1964.

    Green Reflections 2020

    It seems to be the general consensus that 2020 is a year we will be glad to see behind us. And, of course, it would be easy to fall in with such a view. A few hours before starting to write this, I saw a note on FaceBook that went something like this… "I am not staying up on New Year`s Eve to see in the New Year… but I am stopping up until midnight to make sure 2020 actually leaves us!"

    At the full council meeting on the 16th December, Lib Dem Councillor Tom Snowdon asked the leader of the council to submit a bid for Chesterfield to host a major new UK government project.

    Tom Snowdon says "This is a huge opportunity to create thousands of new jobs in an industry that will help us move forward towards a carbon free future. It would make Chesterfield a major hub for fusion power".

    For this purpose, individuals are permitted to go to other people's homes, despite the Tier Four COVID-19 regulations currently in place.
