  • Dominic and Rob campaigning cut

    By Rob Castell in The Times

    Rob has explained why in The Times article .

    Time to meet the Tory rebel. Friday afternoon. A quiet pub. Well I wasn't gonna meet him in a Greggs was I. And he didn't walk in whilst doing a selfie video. No this was the other rebel. Grieve.

    I order a pint. He goes for an orange juice, immediately getting the upper hand. We find a couple of armchairs away from the non elites. I'm not sure whether to whisper or maybe even pass a note across the table. Disappointingly, he just starts talking openly at a normal volume and tells me everything he's thinking and what his position is. 'This is easy' I think, I've got him exactly where I want him. And then I realise that actually he's got me right where he wants me - agreeing to stand aside and support his efforts to be re-elected as MP for Beaconsfield. All so devastatingly logical.

    The local party have decided to support Dominic Grieve as an independent candidate in any General election before Brexit is finalised. It is not a decision that the local executive have taken lightly and has been the subject of much understandable soul searching by many. Not least our new parliamentary candidate Rob Castell. We see this as the best chance to avoid a no deal Brexit and gain a Peoples vote.

    Rob Castell, who was born and brought up in the area, returned here to start a family and be close to his parents. He will campaign to take what was one of the safest Conservative seats in the country. With Dominic Grieve deselected by his local association and thrown out of the Conservative Party for putting country before party, there is the opportunity for change in the constituency.

    The climate emergency is an existential threat. Air pollution is damaging too many lives.

    The Conservatives haven't taken this problem seriously. We have no time to lose: this is an urgent crisis that demands real action now. The Liberal Democrats demand action now.

    In Detail with a video

    In summary,

    • Ban fracking - we don't need to find new carbon fuels
    • Double green electricity generation to preplace gas and coal generation
    • Ensure 4M properties receive installation refits, prioritising the fuel poor
    • Prevent 40,000 premature deaths by cutting air pollution

    The council have wiped its hands of ensuring that children can get to school. They cater only eligible students whom they are legally obliged to provide free home-to-school transport. They will even allow parents to pay to fill up the buses that have to be laid on. By the council's own account, that leaves a large proportion of children with no transport. Local public buses have been withdrawn and no longer link the villagev and townv. Statements about environmental concerns contradict the impact of replacing buses by private cars carrying 1 or 2 children.
