The North Hertfordshire Liberal Democrats are on a roll. Here's what The Comet newspaper had to say about the recent May 2018 Local Elections:

The Comet quote

We think that liberal values need to be defended now more than ever. Locally, we want to hold North Hertfordshire's complacent Conservative Council to account. Nationally, we want to build a fairer society, but also keep the economy strong and secure. Internationally we want the UK to remain part of Europe, and to lead the response to global challenges like climate change.

If you share our values and objectives, then please give us your support.

We believe it's important to communicate with local residents all year round, not just at election times. That's why our local campaigners work harder than any of the other parties to produce and deliver publications like the ones below.

    Once again we've seen us winning a fantastic by-election victory, this time up in Chesterfield on 4 October, with Tony Rogers increasing our vote share to 47% and gaining the seat off Labour, proving that once again where we work hard and find strong local champions, we win. Tony and his team did everything needed to get our message out, find out where our supporters were, and then getting them out to vote on polling day. Congratulations to him and his team, and also to our other winners in local government by elections.

    The announcement made this week that, over the next four years, Hertfordshire County Council will be investing millions of pounds to improve local roads has been slammed by the opposing Liberal Democrats. It is announcing what was already agreed back in February all over again and

    The Liberal Democrat opposition on Herts County Council has come up with a costed proposal that, if agreed, could see residential street lights stay on until 2am if residents want that.

    In the roll-out of converting street lights to LED, the county Conservatives have proposed to move the current midnight turn-off to 1am. The Liberal Democrats have always opposed the midnight turn off and pushed for 2am as the earliest.

    Q - I'm sure being at the centre of a parliamentary by-election is impossibly exciting, but also busy, exhausting and overwhelming, with huge highs and lows. What stands out the most for you from the campaign?

    A - It really was! But incredibly exciting at the same time. I had seen Liberal Democrats gear up for a by-election before, but until you are at the centre of it you really can't appreciate the extent of the support, the enthusiasm and sheer hard work we do as a team to have these great results at by-election. Seeing Lib Dems come together and campaign together - that is definitely what stands out for me.

    The Government's Counter Terrorism Bill has now moved to debate in the House of Lords. The Liberal Democrats opposed the bill in the House of Commons for a simple reason: this bill does little to keep us safe, but a lot to erode the individual freedoms of people in the UK.

    In the future we might have a Government who are prepared to ride roughshod over our freedoms as citizens.

    Will Corbyn stand up to the Tories and their chaotic Brexit? Can Theresa May provide any clarity about what a real Brexit deal might look like?

    No, and no.

    Labour's Conference was riven with divisions over Brexit. Keir Starmer said he wanted to give the people the chance to remain, John McDonnell says this isn't on the table.
