Six to Fix

Ealing Liberal Democrat Manifesto 2022: Six to Fix

The local elections in May 2022 are incredibly important. People are fed up with Ealing Labour’s PR machine trying to dictate what we do in Ealing and how we do it. Liberal Democrats, residents and businesses want the Council to get back to what they should be doing - simply providing services effectively and efficiently.

We are dedicated to making Ealing a better, greener, more prosperous place to live – not just for just some parts of the borough but for every neighbourhood and for everyone who lives and works here. We are proud of Ealing and ambitious for its future.
