    For the last four years, the Liberal Democrats have proudly fought to stop Brexit.

    I am immensely proud of everything we did. We stood up for our values. We campaigned so hard. But I also accept that at 11pm tonight, we will no longer be members of the European Union.

    Our European story is not over. Tomorrow our fight continues, to make sure Britain has the closest possible relationship with our allies in Europe.

    The hugely popular, and well used, NHS walk-in medical centre in Islington Street is to close at the end of March. Councillor Stan Pajak said "When the rumours regarding the centre closing first started they were dismissed as simply unbelievable but now despite protests against the proposal from myself, residents, and the Wiltshire Police Commissioner and homeless charities among others it is going to happen.

    Councillor Stan Pajak who led the battle to keep the Regent Circus Morrisons open and has lived all his life in the Town Centre reports he has never seen the shopping centre look in such a poor state. Empty shops have become the norm not the exception.

    Stan said "Every promise of a new shopping revamp to the centre by the Conservative Council has failed to happen while our neighbours such as Gloucester, Bath, Cheltenham, Bristol, Oxford and Bath have all had major shopping centre improvements. Swindon has failed to attract new retail investment at a local level."

    Local Lib Dems call for action now!

    This January England "celebrated" National Pothole Day. The figures are perhaps the worst ever with 17 miles of pot holes reported last year and if you combined their depth it would reach a staggering 18 miles! The Government gave local councils just over £200 million to sort their pot holes out but a survey of local authorities revealed they needed £9.8 billion to bring their road networks up to scratch!
