Welcome to 2022 and congratulations on surviving 2021. It is time to cast off the gloom, to count our blessings and raise a cheer to the New Year.
So firstly, congratulations on your survival, whether from the raging virus or from privations brought on so many by an incompetent and uncaring Government..
And let’s reflect that the year ended with a brilliant test of the public determination to fight back – leastways in North Shropshire.
The Covid-induced upsurge in local neighbourliness, heightened awareness of climate challenges, the revulsion at exposure of past poor sewage management, the growth of foodbanks and charity work to protect those struggling to survive Tory capitalist visions, and concerns for their further privatisation of healthcare services – all these add up to a determination to re-evaluate the contribution of local councillors.
And, the really good news?
2022 brings no shortage of opportunities to change the way we care for local people, their wellbeing, their work, and their environment. Liberal Democrats are not for giving in to bullies – we demand better, we urge kindness. Your contribution to the effort will be appreciated.
