    Today's New York Times alleges that Cambridge Analytica 'harvested' 50 million Facebook profiles in a potentially huge data breach.

    If these allegations against Cambridge Analytica are correct then it is a shocking betrayal of people's personal data.

    Liberal Democrats in Uttlesford have welcomed a decision to fund additional Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) from the district council's budget for 2018/19. They consider it is a vindication of their campaign for more visible policing. Community Safety rated highly in the district council's public consultation for the budget year that begins in April.

    Liberal Democrats in Uttlesford have accused Stansted Airport of ignoring the damage to the environment that their application to expand the use of the runway to accommodate 43m passengers per annum will cause.

    "The airport already has permission for a 50% increase in the number of flights. Local residents know that a further increase in capacity at the airport will lead to more pressure on our roads especially Junction 8 on the M11, poorer air quality and noise pollution. The application doesn't sort out the night flight problem. Expansion of Stansted Airport cannot be described as environmentally sustainable," Cllr Martin Foley from Thaxted said.

    The Spring Statement was a non-event.

    The OECD gave us the clearer picture - that the economy is bumping along the bottom of the G20, well behind the likes of Australia, Canada and the Euro area.

    The OBR's fresh forecasts are still a long way behind the figures estimated in March 2016 before the EU referendum.
