AMBER RUDD

  NO MATTER WHAT YOUR POLITICS CLIMATE CHANGE AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING SHOULD BE HIGH ON YOUR AGENDA

 

 

Amber Rudd

 

AMBER RUDD - MP Hastings & Rye

 



Amber Rudd represents fishing communities in two locations that depend on the ocean for their
livelihoods. This may become a problem with fish catch limits, or it may prove to pass the burden of deciding what sustainable quotas should be so that our fisheries are not fished out. We hope that Blue Growth will be high on Amber's agenda in the circumstances.

 

Brexit looks set to scupper a number of UK projects when it come to funding via the Horizon 2020 initiatives, where, when and if the UK does exit Europe, those who are based in the UK have been told that they will be unable to continue to work on those projects, even if they are the lead.

 

Clearly, this poses enormous problems where if the technology is British and the home company or organisation is contributing know-how that is proprietary, then the UK concern would have given up their ideas in return for funding and get nothing back in return.

 

 

Amber Rudd and Hastings pier

 

PIER PRESSURE - According to her website Ms Rudd has been in discussions with the pier’s administrator where she learned a number of offers for the pier had been received and were currently all under consideration. The administrators had also received a number of revisions to these offers and they hoped to make a decision shortly so the new owner may make full use of the boost in tourism over summer.

 

Amber said “I was really pleased to hear the bidding process for the pier is moving along quickly. It is vital that our pier’s new owner can provide stability and sustainability with a long term plan. I made sure the concerns of the local community were heard, and that Hastings Pier must always be free of charge on entry.

 

“I was pleased to see a local community group, Friends of Hastings Pier, had submitted an offer for the pier and I made clear that the community must always be involved with our pier should their offer be unsuccessful. I was encouraged to hear that the Heritage Lottery Fund and the pier’s administrators understand the importance of local community involvement and will consider all offers fairly and carefully.”

 

 

We hope then that our politicians are aware of these issue and will do what they can by way of negotiating a truce to allow UK academics and other not-for-profit concerns to continue to contribute intellectually and with physical developments - failing which we wonder what other assurances this Government might offer that important research work might continue under the Conservatives.

 

Amber remained home secretary despite only narrowly holding her seat as MP for Hastings and Rye in June. During the election campaign, she stood in for the PM in the BBC's televised debate.

Ms Rudd was previously energy and climate change secretary, a position she held for just one year.

The former investment banker, venture capitalist and financial journalist, aged 53, decided to enter politics in her 40s in order to get "a grip on her life". It seems to us that she was already doing that, but well done on that anyway.

 

She was appointed Home Secretary in Theresa May's ministry on 13 July 2016, and given the additional role of Minister for Women and Equalities in January 2018. Rudd was the third female Home Secretary, the fifth woman to hold one of the Great Offices of State and the fastest-rising politician to a Great Office of State since the Second World War.

Rudd has been involved in the campaign for the Hastings fishing fleet. Her maiden speech advocated wholesale reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).

Rudd campaigned successfully for the construction of the Hastings to Bexhill Link Road. In early 2013, the Government gave the road the go-ahead for construction after ten years of campaigning. Rudd is now spearheading a campaign called Complete The Link to see the final stage of the road get funding for construction. She has supported electrification of the Marshlink Line from Hastings to Ashford International, which could result in extending High Speed 1 and providing a high speed rail link from the constituency to Central London.

We are concerned with how the make up of the above parties and (reasonably) popular policies may affect the Wealden district, because we are all brothers on two islands in the Atlantic Ocean and what we do or fail to do is likely to rebound on ourselves and our fellow man in other nations around the world. How we act today influences policies in other countries in our global community. It is not just about us and our patch.

 

DISTRICT & BOROUGH COUNCILS

 

East Sussex has five District and Borough Councils, each with a border on the coast. From west to east they are: 

 

Eastbourne Borough Council

Hastings Borough Council

Lewes District Council 

Rother District Council 

Wealden District Council

 

There is also East Sussex County Council as the provider of services to the 5 East Sussex districts.

 

As near neighbours and with councils now sharing facilities and working together, these area of Sussex are included in our remit and an area where climate change and affordable housing are issues that need urgent attention. Where the coastline is a feature in every Council, Blue Growth is a food security issue, especially where this side of of our local economy is under-exploited.
