    Happy New Year, everyone. I hope you had a great Christmas. I am so looking forward to 2022 - I hope it's the year we will finally beat Covid, that Liberal Democrats will keep beating the Conservatives as we did in two historic by-elections last year, and England will win the World Cup.

    Even though things are tough at the moment, I'm determined we find solutions to our country's many problems. The year is starting with many worries. The cost of living crisis, with heating bills rocketing; a staff shortage crisis with so many people off work, self-isolating; and a political crisis, with a divided Government incapable of leading the country through this public health crisis.

    Liberal Democrats won a stunning victory in North Shropshire, taking one of the Conservatives' safest seats.

    Liberal Democrat candidate Helen Morgan received 17,957 votes, representing a swing of 34% from the Conservatives and giving her a majority of 5,925.

    North Shropshire was the 58th safest Conservative seat in the country, with former Conservative MP Owen Paterson having a majority of almost 23,000 votes in 2019. This represents the second biggest majority overcome in a modern by-election, after Christchurch in 1993.

    Liberal Democrats have and always will support public health protections that work but the use of so called "vaccine passports'' provides a false sense of security.

    The Government has lost sight of why they put forward these measures in the first place - to reduce transmission of the virus. The vaccines being given in the UK are highly effective at reducing the severity of Covid symptoms, the likelihood of admission to hospital and against the risk of death. But even those who are fully vaccinated can still spread the virus.

    Leicester Liberal Democrats' members Daniel Henry and Scott Kennedy-Lount hit the villages in North Shropshire last Sunday 28th November as part of Leicester's support for the party campaign for the PPC in the West Midlands constituencies Parliamentary By-Election set for Thursday 16th December.

    Although the day began dry, with late snow flurries later on this didn't deter delivering the latest leaflet nor speaking with constituents who have come across as furious the Conservatives choosing a PPC from Birmingham, some 50 miles away.
