    Proportional Representation at Westminster is vital to mend the system.

    The two party first past the post system is clearly broken. Extreme elements can dominate parties at a time when most sensible people, and even most moderate politicians, agree on most issues.

    A UK General Election is taking place on Thursday 12 December 2019.

    Significant numbers of UK residents have still to register to vote.

    If you haven't registered to vote yet don't forget deadline 26th November.... www.gov.uk/register-to-vote link here.

    Never been more important this is not just the next 5 years this is the Future of the UK for foreseeable future.

    Still need to register to vote in the General Election?

    All you need is your:




    date of birth


    National Insurance Number

    It only takes 5 minutes so why not do it now?


    To vote in a general election you need to

    • Be 18 or over on the day of the election

    • Be a British, Irish or qualifying Commonwealth citizen

    • Be resident at an address in the UK (or a British citizen living abroad who has been registered to vote in the UK in the last 15 years)

    • Not be legally excluded from voting

    You also need to be on the electorial register. If you've moved recently or changed your name, you may need to re-register.

    This needs to be done by November 26th. You can register here: www.gov.uk/register-to-vote


    Can I vote by post?
    Many people already vote by post in every election. If this is you, then your postal votes will arrive as normal about 12 days before the election.

    If you would like to vote by post - many people are saying this because 12th December is in the middle of winter - then you need to register. Again the deadline is 26 November 2019.

    You can download a form here (this needs to be printed out).

    Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie had today used a visit to Lauriston nursery in Dunfermline to announce his party's plans for delivering a massive expansion of free, high-quality childcare.

    The offer will give every child 35 hours a week of care 48 weeks a year from 9 months old to when they start school. Under a Liberal Democrat Government, Scotland will receive at least £1.2 billion every year for this to enable the Scottish Parliament to offer free, high-quality childcare for every child from when their parents go back to work.

    "Scottish Liberal Democrats came within two votes of winning the Dunfermline Central by-election, with a soaring share of the vote.
    "At the same time Scottish Labour's vote has collapsed. Jeremy Corbyn has spent this week touring Scotland unable to give a straight answer on independence. It looks like the public have given him a straight answer back.
