    • Robert Eggleston, Mid Sussex PPC
      Article: Aug 16, 2018
      By Robert Eggleston in Mid Sussex Times

      "Identity Cards were introduced in the Second World War as a security measure but continued under the post war Labour government. The last person to be prosecuted for not carrying an ID card was Clarence Harry Willcock in 1950, who had been stopped for speeding. He declined to show his card declaring that, 'I am a Liberal and against this sort of thing'. Well, I am also a Liberal so, unsurprisingly, I am against this sort of thing too!

    • Thameslink Train at Burgess Hill Station with Robert Eggleston, PPC for Mid Sussex
      Article: Aug 16, 2018
      In Mid Sussex Times

      Mid Sussex Liberal Democrats are calling upon the government to halt the decision to increase regulated fares in January 2019 by an average of 3.2% and freeze them at their current level.

      Robert Eggleston, Lib Dem PPC for Mid Sussex, said:

      "A 3.2% increase in rail fares on top of last year's inflation busting rise of 3.6% on average will be a further bitter blow for passengers in Mid Sussex. They have had to put up with the botched introduction of the new rail timetable, routine cancellations, persistent delays and often overcrowded trains for too long. The government should be giving them a refund not expecting them to pay more.

    • Southern Rail train
      Article: Jun 11, 2018

      The disruption caused to local commuters by the recent train timetable changes continues with further alterations to timetables introduced today. Over the last 3 weeks commuters have put up with multiple delays and cancellations, a situation that we feel is unacceptable. Even Chris Grayling, the Conservative Transport Minister, has had to admit that 'the rail industry has collectively failed to deliver for the passengers it serves'. Stephen Lloyd, Lib Dem MP for Eastbourne, has been meeting with Southern Rail/GTR, Network Rail and the Rail Minister, putting pressure on them to rectify the situation. Stephen's recent interview about the situation can be viewed on Youtube.
