    Sevenoaks Liberal Democrat Councillors set out their top priorites

    For our Town, District and County Councils, the top priority for action in 2020 is the one most people recognised as crucial during 2019 - starting the journey to cut our dependence on carbon based energy.

    Last week, YouGov published its huge MRP poll of the country. This poll has legendary status after it correctly predicted a hung Parliament in 2017 as well as the surprise results in Canterbury and Kensington.

    The poll shows that the Liberal Democrats are clear challengers to the Tories in Sevenoaks well ahead of Labour who are lagging on 14%.

    Liberal Democrat candidate, Gareth Willis says:

    "It's great to see YouGov confirming what we have heard on so many doorsteps. I am the main challenger to the former Cameron political adviser parachuted in by the Tories. I urge Labour and Green voters to lend me their vote for this crucial election."

    Just one day before the election, The World Trade Organisation which Tory Brexiteers have relied on to persuade voters to leave the EU starts to fall apart.

    The Court which enforces its rules will cease to operate, because it has been sabotaged by Boris Johnson's friend Donald Trump.

    The WTO's Court stops big economies, like the US, the EU, China, Japan and ASEAN, bullying smaller economies. It gives certainty for trade and - most important to the UK - for investment.
