Here in Barnet we champion fairness for all and for our environment. From leading the campaign to keep Barnet Libraries open, fighting for our position in a free and fair Europe to defending the protection of our green belt, the Barnet Liberal Democrats are on your side.

    "Immigration has made London the successful world city that it is today and the plans to cut immigration to the size of Mill Hill or Hendon, nationwide, is nothing short of an economic own goal.

    Lord John Alderdice, former leader of the Alliance Party, Speaker of the Northern Ireland Assembly and a signatory of the Good Friday Agreement visited Chipping Barnet on Monday evening to publically endorse the Liberal Democrat Candidates in Barnet.

    Discussing the difficulties in securing peace in Northern Ireland, Lord Alderdice spoke of the importance of rationality in the advancements of science, medicine, and politics, but said that mere rationality was not enough if people could persuade themselves to treat others as not entirely human beings because they were different in religion, colour, attitude or politics. There also had to be respect for human rights. However even the combination of rationality and rights has not prevented us from sliding into a bad and dangerous place today.

    Over the past few days, millions will have shuddered at Conservative plans to fund social care.

    Under the initial proposals, people who receive care at home will be required to fund the entire care cost until they reach their last £100,000 of assets which the State would allow them to keep. And for the first time, the value of their home will be taken into accound when meeting care costs.

    The Liberal Democrats have announced they would plug funding gaps for the NHS and social care by putting a penny on income tax, in their first major manifesto commitment of the election campaign.

    The tax would raise an additional £38.5 million for Barnet, with £26 million for the NHS and £12.5 million for social care each year.

    This is the party's flagship spending commitment and its first major policy announcement for the election. The Liberal Democrats manifesto will also set out a 'five-point recovery plan' for NHS and social care services in their manifesto.

    At least 70% of Brits would happily pay an extra 1p in every pound if that money was guaranteed to go to the NHS, an ITV poll found last October (link).

    Liberal Democrat candidate for Chipping Barnet, Marisha Ray said:


    "Right now across all of Barnet we are hearing complaints about waiting times, concerns about staffing and worry about a lack of mental health provision.

    A survey has revealed there are 22 tower blocks of 20 storeys or more in the pipeline in the Borough of Barnet, 18 in NW2 and 4 in NW9.

    Liberal Democrat candidate for Finchley & Golders Green Jonathan Davies said -

    "This appears to be massive over-development. Whilst tall buildings may be appropriate in Manhattan or Canary Wharf, this number of tower blocks will change the character of our suburban area and overshadow Childs Hill and Cricklewood. This will put even more pressure on school places, our local health service and the transport network. Local residents will be expecting the Labour Mayor and Tory Barnet Planning Committee to protect their local area."
