Liberal Democrat Cllr David Kendall, at the Boundary Commission Hearing in Chelmsford 2016

The Boundary Commission has decided to keep the Brentwood wards of 'Warley', and 'Herongate, Ingrave & West Horndon', within the 'Brentwood and Ongar' parliamentary constituency.

There were proposals to move the wards in to a new constituency, based around 'Basildon and Thurrock', but these have been rejected.

A Liberal Democrat Campaign led by Councillor David Kendall, organised petitions in both wards that attracted over 800 signatures, and gained many letters of support from displeased residents.

David Kendall made a presentation on behalf of the Wards' residents at the Commission's Hearing in Chelmsford; in which he "highlighted community links: 'the reason why both wards want to stay in the Brentwood and Ongar constituency, is that they have strong links with Brentwood, built up over hundreds of years. There is a real sense of community and identity with Brentwood, and they are concerned that it will be lost if they are transferred in to another constituency.'"

In the Boundary Commissions report, it highlighted the petitions and letters as an important factor in making their decision. The report also said, the Liberal Democrats were the only political party to put forward revised constituency proposals for the whole of Essex.

On hearing the news, Cllr David Kendall said, "I would like to thank all the residents who signed our petitions, and sent in letters in support of our campaign. This is a victory for keeping our local community together, and it just goes to show that people power can make a difference".

    Jo Swinson MP said:

    "President Trump's divisive politics of hate is in direct conflict with British values.

    "One of the prime minister's biggest political mistakes was to offer to roll out the red carpet for a man who wears his racism and misogyny like a badge of pride. Theresa May should stand up to Donald Trump and withdraw her invitation."

    The government has carried out impact assessments on policies ranging from songs from ice cream trucks to drain standards to the use of parody in comedy yet still hasn't produced any on Brexit, Liberal Democrat research has revealed.

    This is quite literally beyond parody.

    These revelations come after David Davis yesterday admitted that the 58 Brexit impact assessments he claimed his department was working never existed.

    After David Davis has been accused of misleading parliament, he must resign.

    David Davis needs to go. He has mislead parliament and under his leadership the Brexit department has turned incompetence into an art form.

    I am not one to call for ministerial resignations every two minutes and I've nothing against David Davis as a person but it is now clear he deceived MP. He is also writing the government's Brexit strategy on the back of a fag packet.

    The Government has released a new rail strategy.

    Vince Cable, Leader of the Liberal Democrats, said:

    "Investment is to be welcomed at a time when the railways are struggling to cope with their greatest passenger numbers in nearly a century, but there is scant detail on the financial figures.

    The Brexit divorce bill will just be the down-payment on an economically disastrous extreme Brexit that would take us out of the single market and customs union.

    Around £45 billion would appear to be the price Johnson and Gove et al are willing to pay for a deluded vision of an imperial Britain post-Brexit.

    President Trump has retweeted three anti-Muslim videos originally posted by the deputy leader of far-right group Britain First.

    The mask has yet again slipped, revealing the atrocious views of President Trump.

    It is incredibly dangerous for someone in his position of responsibility to sow such division and hatred at every turn.

    Trump needs to do the world a favour and delete his account.

    A report by the Public Accounts Committee has criticised NHS England for its handling of the huge loss of clinical correspondence that put thousands of patients at risk.

    The report finds NHS England has not done enough to check that all of the estimated 100,000 patients affected were not harmed.

    It also criticises the Department for Health's lack of oversight of NHS Shared Business Services, the private company responsible for mislaying the documents.
