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.

"During the meeting a number of the Board members expressed their sympathy for the plight of these children, yet when the moment came for them to support these words with action, they remained mute. It was shameful! They have been warned by the County Council's Health Scrutiny Committee that if they don't improve their engagement with parents, their decision will be referred to the Secretary of State. It looks like they have a long way to go."
