    Dr Sarah Wollaston, MP for Totnes, has today joined the Liberal Democrats, becoming the party's 14th MP in the House of Commons and further strengthening the Lib Dems in their fight against Brexit.

    Sarah's decision to join came after discussions with the party nationally and locally, about how best to stop the Government's disastrous No Deal Brexit strategy. She has held the Totnes seat since 2010.

    The Liberal Democrats won two seats out of six in the South West region in the European Elections, counted on Sunday night.

    Totnes based Caroline Voaden and former Cheltenham MP Martin Horwood were elected to represent SW England and Gibraltar with a 23% share of the vote.

    Caroline and Martin are now two of 16 Liberal Democrat MEPs heading for Brussels - the biggest ever delegation of Lib Dem MEPs.

    The Liberal Democrats have announced candidates for the European elections - the first political party to do so.

    I am delighted to have been selected first on the list for the party's campaign in the South West.

    I am a true remainer - I have lived and worked in six EU member states and speak five languages. I consider myself a European.

    The Liberal Democrats have been campaigning for nearly three years now to stop Brexit - a policy that we believe will damage the United Kingdom for generations.

    Today Sarah Wollaston MP left the Conservative Party because of its shift to the right and the government's 'disastrous handling of Brexit'.

    My letter to the Totnes Times Feb 12th 2019:

    In a week that saw the Conservative government cut local government funding even further, we can but wonder what services will be left to cut by the end of the year?

    And how long before we are looking at an environmental, social and cultural wasteland?

    The Tories' new funding settlement was passed on Tuesday night, cutting a further £1 billion from councils, penalising poorer areas and practically guaranteeing more council tax rises. Our MP Sarah Wollaston didn't attend the vote - could it be that she was attempting to distance herself from yet another Conservative party fiasco?

    Tory-led SHDC and Torbay Council have no one to blame but their cousins in Westminster

    South Hams District Council and Torbay Council, like local authorities throughout the country, will be under even greater financial pressure from today thanks to the Tories.

    Last night in the House of Commons the Tories passed a bill that will cut a further £1.3 billion to councils all over the UK.
