    Ed Davey - Ukraine

    We should welcome those in need

    As the horror unfolds in Ukraine, the generosity of our communities is inspiring, with local people willing to open their homes and their hearts.

    However, frustration due to the red-tape and bureaucracy that people are facing as they offer support, is loudly condemned by Lib Dems in Teignbridge. The government's incompetence is now made worse by the Home Secretary's attempt to deal with the issue of refugees by sending them half a world away to Rwanda. We need less rhetoric and more action. Lord Harrington, Minister for Refugees, needs to make his mark and take action.

    There is a stark contrast between the Government's response to this crisis and that of the Syrians and Afghans. Many refugees are still waiting for help, they cannot be forgotten.

    The Government's reaction to this crisis simply does not reflect the compassion seen from the British people, both at home and on the border with Ukraine. Boris Johnson and Priti Patel are betraying refugees and the British people who are ready to welcome them with open arms.

    We need to keep pushing the Government to do their bit.

    Please help send Conservatives the message that we cannot turn our back on Ukraine.

      Thank you

      With nominations now closed for the May elections, many thanks to everyone who has put in so much work to getting candidates approved, selected and safely nominated. From a first look at the numbers, we've seen a good increase in our candidate totals in Scotland and Wales, with the numbers broadly the same in England compared with last time.

      We now have a criminal Prime Minister.

      Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak have both been fined for breaking Covid laws. Laws they wrote, and you followed.

      While we made countless sacrifices to protect each other, they were partying in Downing Street. They think they're above the law.

      Neither of them are fit to hold office. If Boris Johnson won't resign, Conservative MPs must sack the Prime Minister.
