A TEAM of Liberal Democrats from Gateshead will be heading to Bournemouth later this week to attend the party’s annual Conference. 6 will be attending the gathering from the local party.
Leading the team will be Neil Bradbury, Parliamentary Candidate for Blaydon. “This is the last autumn Conference before the General Election so it will be a very important meeting for the Party,” said Neil.
“In Blaydon we are campaigning hard on local environmental issues. I am hoping to raise these at the Conference when I meet some of the party’s MPs.
“The theme of the Conference is ‘A Fresh Start for Britain’. The main plans are to cut taxes for people on low and middle incomes, create green jobs and ensure every child has the best start in life.
“This Conference will therefore set the scene for our General Election manifesto. That General Election cannot come too soon for the people of Blaydon. We urgently need change here, and Liberal Democrats are fighting hard to bring that about.
“Everyone knows that the Conservatives can’t win here in Blaydon. The Liberal Democrats are the only alternative here to the failed Labour Party.”
Also attending Conference from Gateshead will be Councillors Jonathan Wallace, Frank Hindle, Ron Beadle, Peter Maughan and Ian Patterson.
