A Halloween Treat from Renew
We’d love your opinion on where you’d like your tax money spent. Please feel free to fill in a short poll on our Facebook or Twitter page to give an idea of your priorities. We’ve already highlighted education as a key sector for Renew, but we’ve also included healthcare, defence, infrastructure and environmental protection as other options.
Here’s The Times’ take on Philip Hammond’s Budget. Maybe the kids should feel lucky they got anything at all...
Renew has long been in favour of a People’s Vote on EU membership. Politicians have failed to deliver on their Brexit promises and are trying to sweep it under the carpet. Everybody needs to tell their MP how they feel. So to make life easy we’ve posted a letter on our website for you. It couldn’t be simpler - a few clicks and press send. Job done. Now your MP will know your thoughts on this, the most vital political issue for the country since the Second World War.

Renew leader Annabel Mullin talks to Conner Kiernan at the event
This week we went to Manchester and met three of our brilliant candidates. Conner Kiernan is one of them. Conner was born in Blackpool and now studies Journalism at Liverpool John Moores University. He is passionate about his community and country, but realised the institutional parties are not fit for either. With Renew, he is promoting democracy, fairness and opportunity for all.
