    Giles Goodall, Lib Dem MEP candidate for South East England, has today pledged to campaign for an end to the European Parliament's travelling circus by backing a Single Seat for the institution.

    The duplication of European Parliament buildings and facilities in Brussels and Strasbourg is a huge drain on the EU's resources.

  • Tax Cut
    Article: Apr 7, 2014

    Today 3,570,000 people in the South East will receive a £700 tax cut compared to 2010. This will put £700 back in the pockets of the lowest earners.

    Thanks to the Liberal Democrats, the new income tax personal allowance kicks in, reaching £10,000. It means 3,570,000 working people are paying £700 less in income tax than they were under Labour; people on the minimum wage have had the amount they pay in income tax more than halved; and 2.7m of people in the lowest paid jobs will no longer pay any income tax at all.
