Big Plastic Count

Next week Greenpeace are organising over 142,000 people across the country to take part in the biggest ever plastic investigation! Counting every bit of plastic waste we throw away for a week.

Wildlife expert Chris Packham is taking part, the fabulous Joanna Lumley and plastic activist and actor Bonnie Wright!

Why is The Big Plastic Count happening? Because later this year the government is setting long-term environmental targets and shockingly there is no plastic reduction target currently on the table!

As it stands plastic production is set to double in the next 20 years. If the government doesn’t take this opportunity to set ambitious targets, we’re going to see even more plastic destroying the natural world, killing animals, and ending up in people’s lungs and blood.

Stop Sewage Dumping

Did you know that in 2021 there were a staggering 1429 discharges of untreated sewage and storm water into the Fylde's river network, amounting to 7642 hours of discharge?

Conservative MPs - including Fylde MP Mark Menzies - voted against a new law which would have forced water companies to report on the number of animals killed by these kinds of sewage dumps. The Liberal Democrats have been leading calls for tougher action on sewage dumping - after toxic substances were detected in otters in rivers across England and Wales.

It is high time water companies stopped polluting our rivers and pay for the mess they have made. Sadly, the lack of action from Conservative MPs means the water companies are continuing to get away with it.

The Liberal Democrats will continue to campaign to end sewage dumping and are calling for a 16% sewage tax on the £2.2 billion annual profits of the water companies to improve our sewage system and protect the rivers of the Fylde and our coastline.

Fylde Stands with Ukraine

Like you, we are horrified by the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.

The Russian Government’s attack on its neighbour is an attack on peace and democracy.

The Fylde has a proud record of providing sanctuary to those in need, and now is the time for us to reach out and offer shelter and homes to Ukrainians displaced by this war.

We are calling on Fylde Borough Council to do it’s part to help those affected by this conflict.

Now is the time for us to pull together, as a community and as a country in united opposition to the terror of the Russian state.

Peace and freedom will always win.

The Fylde Lib Dems stand with the people of Ukraine.

You can contact the following organisations if you wish to make a donation for Ukraine:

  • The British Red Cross has launched a Ukraine Crisis Appeal
  • Sunflower of Peace is a charity supporting paramedics and doctors in Ukraine with supplies and medical first aid equipment
  • United Help Ukraine provides medical supplies and humanitarian aid for Ukraine
  • The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) is raising funds to provide aid for those displaced by the war
  • Unicef has launched an appeal to help children affected by the conflict

Cost of Living Crisis

The cost of living rose by 5.1% between November 2020 and November 2021. It is now at its highest rate for 10 years.

With energy, fuel and food prices all rising - everyone in Fylde has been affected in one way or another

  • Household heating prices have soared since the Energy Price Cap was lifted in October. 15 million homes pay £139 more for their heating and this could increase further in the Spring.
  • Supermarket food prices have risen by 1.1% - the biggest increase since the 2008 crash - while stock on the shelves is at its lowest point since 1983.
  • Filling a tank of petrol is on average £12 more expensive than it was a year ago. Fuel is set to hit a record high in 2022.

This is a time when the Government should be giving people a helping hand - however the Conservatives are instead making life even harder. They have increased National Insurance, cut Universal Credit and capped Pension rises so they don’t keep pace with wage increases.

The Lib Dems would tackle the growing cost of living by taxing super-rich international companies, investing in green homes and green energy to cut fuel bills, and improving trade with Europe to cut food bills and tackle food shortages.

Sea Side Sewage

Today the government had an opportunity to ensure that water companies take all reasonable steps to ensure untreated sewage is not discharged into our rivers, but once again the government have ignored the millions of people who demanded action.

We needed to see legislation with real teeth today which gave water companies hard deadlines and targets, instead, the government have merely voted for a flimsy law which won't be strong enough to hold water companies to account.

Liberal Democrats have a plan to support our natural environment and tackle the climate crisis, and we won’t stand for the continuing pollution of our precious rivers.
