    The Liberal Democrat Group on Wokingham Borough Council are delighted that Ian Pittock has left the Conservatives and joined the Liberal Democrats. Ian announced the move at the end of the Full Council Meeting last Thursday evening (23rd March).

    In his statement Ian gave his reasons for moving to the Liberal Democrats. These included his concerns over Brexit and how the Conservatives are running Wokingham Borough Council

    Lindsay Ferris (Leader of the Lib Dems on Wokingham Borough Council) expressed his delight that Ian had the courage of his convictions to join the Liberal Democrats and welcomed him to their Group. Lindsay added "It is clear that the tide is turning and more and more people are seeing that the Conservatives are letting down the residents of Wokingham Borough. The February by-election in Emmbrook showed the strength of local residents' feelings, as the Lib Dems took the seat from the Conservatives with a 696 majority.

    THANK YOU to all the volunteers who came out on Thursday 9th February to campaign on behalf of Imogen Shepherd-DuBey in the borough council byelection in Wokingham and Dr Zulfiqar Ali, the Liberal Democrat candidate in the Stoke on Trent parliamentary by election.

    The Conservative controlled West Berkshire countil has voted to close one library (Wash Common) and lay off professional staff in other libraries, hoping to replace them with volunteers. Speaking at the meeting where the cuts were approved, Liberal Democrat Councillor Lee Dillon warned that this may not secure the future of the library service, and asked what contingency plans exist if the needed volunteers do not materialize. As residents have commented, Berkshire is a well off county, and these cuts are a purely political choice by the Tories.

    In a letter published in last week's Newbury Weekly News, our new Constituency Chair Dr. Tony Vickers has exposed how Brexiteers attack British Parliamentary democracy. Text follows...

    David Bailey's comment about the "Democrat" in my Party's name (letter Nov 24) deserves a response.

    Quentin Peel of the foreign affairs think-tank Chatham House said recently of the EU Referendum: "It was incredibly irresponsible to say this decision is only advisory, then treat it as the most fundamental constitutional decision ever to be made." But the fact is that, in British law, it was only advisory.
