A £50 billion Remain Bonus to invest in public services and tackle inequality. Our farmers, care services, health services, all could benefit, says Ludlow Lib Dems’ Heather Kidd.

- Shropshire Councillor and Liberal Democrat prospective parliamentary candidate for Ludlow Heather Kidd. Heather praised the work of Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service, but said Shropshire Council and Severn Trent Water failed to help the most vulnerable during floods.
Heather said “I spent most of Saturday morning trying to get some assistance for vulnerable residents in my ward only to repeatedly hit a brick wall.”
Community campaigner Heather Kidd has been selected to fight for the Liberal Democrats in Ludlow constituency, which includes Bridgnorth, Church Stretton and Bishops Castle, in the forthcoming general election.
She is a formidable campaigner on rural issues with a long-track record of work for South Shropshire.
Heather is the high-profile Shropshire county councillor for Chirbury and Worthen. She regularly lobbies ministers for a fair deal for rural areas as one of the senior members of the UK-wide Local Government Association.
Outside politics, Heather is a former science teacher at Bishops Castle Community College, and has lived in the constituency for 32 years.
“There has never been such an important time to stand up and be counted. The very thought of the effect of a ‘No deal’ Brexit on local farmers and the rural economy has made me want to stand up for the area I love,” Heather Kidd said.
“People need someone to fight their battles in Parliament, and that is what I pledge to do.”
Yesterday evening just a handful of votes stopped us from giving the British public the final say on the Brexit deal.
If the Labour leadership had voted with us last night, the amendment would have passed. But they didn’t.
On this key issue, the Labour party has gone missing in action.
At the outset of our campaign, few believed we would get this close. But the momentum is now with us.
This vote has shown that since we last voted on the issue a year ago there has been a large shift in favour of giving the people the final say on any Brexit deal.
60% of the British public now believe it is right that they have the final say on a Brexit deal.
Over the coming months, we’ll have more opportunities to secure people the final say on the Brexit deal.
We can do it, we are making a difference.
Votes like last night show just how close things are getting. The Government is weak and soon they will have to face the undeniable right of the British public to have their say. It’s the right thing for democracy and the right thing for our country.
