    Please find below a recent letter by Nick Hopkinson, the LDEG Chair, to the West Sussex Times

    Dear Sir,
    Your recent editorial praised the ruling Conservative Party for its record as the majority Party on West Sussex County Council (WSCC). Is this really merited? Education continues to be woefully underfunded. West Sussex road programmes and maintenance remains patchy, and social care and re-cycling facilities operate on reduced hours. The list of Conservative led failings at WSCC goes on.

    Voters in next month's general election are being asked to support Theresa May's 'strong and stable' leadership in the Brexit negotiations. What voters may in fact be choosing is a weak and unstable United Kingdom. Inflation, first prompted by the 15% fall in sterling after last year's vote to leave the European Union (EU), will continue to erode real standards of living. The drip drip of foreign firms reallocating future investment and jobs outside the United Kingdom will continue. As a result Government tax revenue will decline and Tory austerity will last longer. The Scottish Government will progress a second independence referendum, and there may yet be a border poll on an united Ireland.

    President Poroshenko on the future of Europe - Chatham House event 19 April

    By Dr Carol Weaver

    The President of Ukraine emphasised that the future of Ukraine goes hand in hand with the future of Europe when he talked at Chatham House on the 19 April. Both are at stake as well as the future of the free world that we have fought for over many decades. We need a world governed by the rule of law not the rule of force.
