So why should you get behind RCT Welsh Lib Dems? Well we believe that Rhondda Cynon Taff deserves more at a local and national level. There is so much going on that is simply not fair.

It's not fair that our children do not all get a first rate education in schools fit for the purpose, or that nursery education was cut by half denying many a better start in life.

It's not fair that services such as special baby care, paediatrics trauma services are being cut from our local hospital and centralised elsewhere.

It's not fair that whilst neighbouring authorities such as Merthyr and Caerphilly are attracting new business and expanding their retail outlets our high streets are dying.

It's not fair that so many have to travel outside the area for work whilst others cannot because of a public transport system that does not meet their needs.

We could go on, but you get the drift. It is what drives us as a party - a desire to see more equality, to see a better standard of living for people in RCT, a fairer society for us all.

It is why RCT Welsh Liberal Democrats were at the frontline fighting the plans to cut nursery education, to create 3 - 16 schools in the Rhondda and Tonyrefail, to cut services at the Royal Glamorgan. All pushed through by the Labour party - the alleged party of the working class. Well not any more.

If you care about your community then there is only one party working for you - the Welsh Liberal Democrats. Join us now and let's fight for a better RCT together.

    This week we were all shocked by yet another mindless terrorist attack which took the lives of innocent people and will have affected the lives of many more in one way or another. People who were on a night out, harmlessly enjoying a concert, in the case of many of the young people there their first. None of them expected the tragic event that took place.

    Today marks the end of national dementia week. There are a number of misconceptions about dementia - is not a natural part of ageing and it doesn't just affect older people. Over 40,000 people under 65 in the UK have early-onset or young-onset dementia.

    There are various types of dementia which affect people in different ways and at varying rates. Alzheimer's disease for example tends to start slowly and progress gradually. Vascular dementia after a stroke often progresses in a 'stepped' way, where symptoms are stable for a while and then suddenly get worse.

    The former head of the NHS in England, David Nicholson, has today backed Liberal Democrat plans to put a penny on income tax to rescue the health and care service.

    He is amongst a group of 26 leading health experts including the ex-heads of the Royal College of Nursing, Royal College of GPs and Royal College of Psychiatrist who all backed the Lib Dem approach in a letter to the Observer.

    The letter states:

    "The human cost of this crisis is already painfully clear. Waiting times are rising, there is particularly poor access for people with mental ill health and operations are being cancelled.

    "For these reasons, we strongly welcome the Liberal Democrats' commitment to raise income tax by 1p, to generate additional, ring-fenced revenue for NHS and social care."

    Welsh Liberal Democrat candidates are backing a two pronged campaign by Parkinson's UK on behalf of the more than 127,000 people living with the condition in the UK.

    The first calls for the continuation of vital life science partnerships with the EU, including collaboration with EU research programmes and alignment with the European Medicines Agency to make sure there is no delay in accessing new treatments.

    Much will be said during this election about the health service and Tory privatisation plans, hospital closures, waiting lists and times. The criticism will be well earned.

    However, here in Wales the health service is devolved and has been under Labour control since 1999.

    We have longer waiting times and we also have hospitals being downgraded and closed.

    Along with 48% of the British voting public, RCT Lib dems were far from happy with the result of the referendum in June 2016. In common with most Liberal Democrats we believe we are better off as part of a united Europe.

    The leave campaign was based to a large extent on untruths and the spreading of mistrust, and the remain campaign was simply not good enough.

    Although education is devolved, Conservative cuts to education in England will have knock on effects here.

    Liberal Democrats at Westminster and in the Welsh Assembly ensured extra money was given to schools to help all children achieve their best via the pupil premium / pupil deprivation grant which gives extra money direct to schools for every child on free school meals.
