2019 Election Manifesto

    Article: Nov 30, 2019

    Every child deserves the best start in life.

    That's why children's charities have asked every party leader how their policies will help children and generations to come.

    Here are five things the Liberal Democrats will do to build a brighter future for every young person:

    1. Stop Brexit

    Brexit is a disaster for our young people. It limits our ambitions and our horizons.

    By Brian Paddick

    Too many people feel unsafe in their own homes and walking down their local streets. So many communities feel exposed and vulnerable.

    The Conservatives' cuts to police numbers have contributed to a rise in violence and decimated community policing. 47% of people say they never see police foot patrols, up from 30% in 2014-15.

  • Spelthorne Local PLan
    Article: Nov 29, 2019

    Spelthorne Borough Council have arranged for additional dates for presentations on the local plan. These give an overview of what the plan contains, why it matters and how it will affect the borough.

    The presentations provide a great deal of information, including:

    • Housing numbers for the next 15 years
    • Plans for development on Green Belt
    • Future of Staines town centre
    • Changes to policies for development e.g. affordable housing and renewable energy
    • Plans for infrastructure development
    • Environmental protection

    Article: Nov 28, 2019

    The UK has the fifth largest economy in the world, but one in five of us lives in poverty.

    Yet instead of addressing inequality, the Tories' heartless welfare policy has led to soaring levels of poverty across the country.

    That's why Jo Swinson's Liberal Democrats have come up with a bold plan to tackle inequality across the UK. As the Resolution Foundation recognises, Liberal Democrats have the most progressive manifesto of all the major parties, focused on ensuring everyone has the same opportunities regardless of where they come from.

    "Boris Johnson only cares about Boris Johnson."

    When I meet children and teenagers in schools, they often ask me what you need to be good at to become a politician.

    And my answer is always this:

    Being able to write a press release and understand legislation is important for the job. But you can learn all of that.

  • 6. Environment
    Article: Nov 27, 2019
    By Keith Melton

    The Green Liberal Democrats are the environmental conscience of the party, and their website is devoted to things environmental. We thought, therefore, that it would be a good place to promote just the environmental bit of the manifesto for you to have a closer look in detail. So, if the environment is your "thing", you will find our plans here to tackle the environmental crises that we face.

  • Ban Plastic Waste ()
    Article: Nov 27, 2019

    The UK produces 2.26 million tonnes of plastic packaging every year.

    Less than half of this is being recycled.

    The Conservatives claimed they will cut plastic pollution. They announced a deposit return scheme in 2018, but it is currently due to be implemented by 2023.

    In reality, all the Tories have done is try to get headlines with piecemeal bans on straws and stirrers.

  • Tropical fish.
    Article: Nov 26, 2019

    "We will put the UK at the heart of global efforts to protect our marine environment."

    Our marine environment is in crisis. Programmes like the BBC's Blue Planet 2 have revealed the scale of the threat.

    The world's beloved marine species like whales and turtles face numerous threats. Plastic pollution, over-fishing, high volumes of shipping traffic, and rising temperatures are but a few.

  • NHS Logo
    Article: Nov 26, 2019

    "Only someone as deceitful as Boris Johnson could dress up exploiting nurses as a gift to the NHS."

    Not only is Boris Johnson's pledge for 50,000 nurses not true.

    The Conservatives are trying to profit from taxing hardworking nurses.

    The Conservative's manifesto commitment includes 12,000 nurses from abroad. The visa fee will be £464 for EU and international nurses. The cost to the Home Office of processing one of those visa applications, however?

  • School sign
    Article: Nov 25, 2019
    By Liberal Democrats

    Our schools should be world class, but years of under-investment and funding cuts have left them crumbling, with repairs being unaffordable. It is completely unacceptable that in the 21st century, our children are being taught in Victorian conditions.

    Enough is enough. The Liberal Democrats will invest an extra £7 billion over five years from our infrastructure budget for new school buildings and repairs to keep up with rising pupil numbers.
