A year ago today I was elected as leader of our great party. It has been a challenging and exciting year. I am very proud that in that time we have made all the running on so many of the important issues facing us.
Today I am announcing our "Green Road out of the Recession", which outlines how a Liberal Democrat government would inject a green stimulus into the economy, both to provide jobs and investment now and to ensure our economy is sustainable in the future.
Our proposals include:
A five-year programme to insulate every school and hospital
Funding insulation and energy efficiency for a million homes, with a £1,000 subsidy for a million more
Building 40,000 extra zero-carbon social houses
Buying 700 new train carriages
Reopening old railway lines and stations, opening new ones, electrifying the Great Western and Midland mainlines and beginning the Liverpool light rail network
Installing energy and money saving smart meters in every home within five years
You can read more about our plans and download the full document on the Party website.
Thank you for your continuing support. Together we can take the fight to the other parties and change Britain for good.
Best Wishes for a Happy Christmas,
PS I have recorded a new film to mark my first anniversary as Leader. You can watch, rate and comment on it on YouTube.
