  • Jo Swinson in Watford (Watford Liberal Democrats)
    Article: Apr 5, 2019

    The Watford Liberal Democrats say that Conservative members have given up on their troubled party. There are no Conservative candidates standing in certain areas of Watford - for the first time ever.

    There are no Conservative candidates in Stanborough Ward (Watford Borough) and in Abbots Langley, Gade Valley and Leavesden (Three Rivers). These are all wards that have historically elected Conservative councillors and together make up around a quarter of the Watford Parliamentary constituency - currently held by Richard Harrington MP.

    For some time now there have not been any Conservative councillors on Watford Borough Council .

    The Liberal Democrats have fielded a full slate of candidates across both Watford, Dacorum, St Albans and Three Rivers.

    Grove Road, Tring - Second Half to be Re-Surfaced at Last!

    These Road Works will be at the northwestern end of Grove Road and will be (I am led to believe) the long-awaited resurfacing of the second half of Grove Road!

    Expect delays for 4 days while this work takes place.

    It is expected that the current speed humps will be replaced.

    However, it is expected that the speed tables intended for Christchurch Road will prove much more acceptable than the old style "humps".

    In due course it is intended that the old style humps will be replaced with the longer and shallower speed tables. Maybe in the year after next.

    The title of this article should be common sense, shouldn't it?

    And yet, between 2014 and 2016 alone, over 3000 people were dragged before the court. Not for doing anything wrong, but for falling foul of a 195-year-old law.

    The 1824 Vagrancy Act was drafted with soldiers coming home from the Napoleonic Wars in mind. It's a cold, archaic relic from a bygone age. I will do everything in my power to ensure it doesn't reach its 200th birthday.
