    A leading former local Conservative has switched to back Michael Mullaney for today's election in Bosworth

    Ian Bullock former chairman of Market Bosworth Conservatives is now backing Michael Mullaney to be our next MP.

  • Liberal Democrat plans would see a vital extra 32 police officers on local streets
    Article: Dec 2, 2019

    The Liberal Democrats have announced plans to fund at least 32 police officers across Hinckley and Bosworth as part of an extra £1bn nationwide investment into community policing.

    This commitment amounts to 20,000 more police officers across England and Wales, enough for an extra two officers per ward. The Liberal Democrats will also fund an immediate 2% pay-rise for serving police officers.

    Liberal Democrat plans stand in stark contrast to Labour and the Conservatives, who have made big promises on police numbers, but have failed to commit the funding needed to deliver them.

    Liberal Democrat candidate for Bosworth Councillor Michael Mullaney said:

    "Too many people feel unsafe in their own homes and walking down their own streets. With entire communities feeling exposed and vulnerable, both the Tories and Labour are claiming to offer solutions but the sums just don't add up.

    "Only the Liberal Democrats have a bold and credible plan to increase the number of police across Hinckley and Bosworth. The Liberal Democrats are committing £1 billion nationwide investment per year to fund this - that's £250 million more than Labour or the Tories.

    "The Liberal Democrats are the only party willing to back our bobbies with money, not just words. We are the only party that can stop Brexit, make our communities safe and build a brighter future."

    Plans by the Tory leader of Leicestershire county council Nick Rushton to abolish all local Boroughs including Hinckley and Bosworth and replace them with one Unitary authority for Leicestershire have been condemned by a leading Liberal Democrat.
    Hinckley County Councillor and Leicestershire Lib Dem Finance spokesman Cllr Michael Mullaney said "These plans would see areas like Hinckley miss out. They will lead to massive centralisation of decision making in the county and areas like Hinckley and Burbage on the edge of the county are likely to be overlooked. It's particularly concerning if control over planning applications end up with the County Council given we are expected to take so much development here without the infrastructure needed being delivered by government.
