On the 12th December vote for Dominic Graham in Braintree and Sam North in Witham for a brighter future.

Liberal Democrat Policies:

Brexit- The best way to protect jobs and preserve vital public services is to STOP BREXIT. If we win a majority in the next parliament, Lib Dems will revoke Article 50 and end this period of instability in our country.

Environment -The Liberal Democrats will crack down on air pollution and invest in renewable energy, creating green jobs across the UK. This is a global emergency. We will work in the EU to lead on this emergency and protect our planet.

NHS - The Liberal Democrats are the only party with a clear plan for the NHS and social care. We will build a better health and care system that is prepared for the future and provides quality care for patients and respects our health workforce. Under our plan, the health and care services will be there for you and your loved ones when they need it, and won't have to stretch budgets to breaking point.

Education -Our plan will ensure children from all backgrounds have the education they deserve, giving them the best chance in life, and make sure teachers can get back to teaching our children.

Economy and Business- Liberal Democrats will harness the innovation of British business and demand multinational corporations pay their fair share in taxation.
We will fight for good paying, secure jobs where workers are not held back by discrimination, inequality or a lack of training.

Communities- Liberal Democrats will reverse Conservative welfare policies that target the poor and vulnerable, recruit more community police officers and tackle the housing crisis by building 300,000 new homes each year, improving rights for renters and increasing funding for local authorities to prevent homelessness.

Both the Conservatives and Labour are stuck in the past. They have had years to build a brighter future and yet too often they are fixated on tribalism, beholden to big business interests, foreign governments and the unions.

Only the Liberal Democrats can build a brighter future for us all.

    Do you think we care well enough for the more vulnerable in our society?

    Have we figured out how best to care for people who've experienced bereavement, people who get ill in old age, those with mental ill-health or adults with learning disabilities?

    My own personal experience tells me we haven't. Whether in my own life or for many constituents in my advice surgeries over 20 years, all too often the care and support systems either don't work well enough or aren't even there at all.

    I want to thank you for all your hard work over the last six weeks. Everyone did everything they could in this campaign but the result has been deeply disappointing.

    Despite Liberal Democrats gaining 1.2m votes and our share of the vote increasing in every region of the UK, we are now one seat down compared to 2017. Under a proportional system, we would now have 84 MPs.

    This news is yet more evidence that Boris Johnson's government looks set to crash our economy thanks to his disastrous Brexit plans.

    Whether its putting people's livelihoods on the line in our factory sector, or increasing prices with the pound weakening in 2020, it is clear that Boris Johnson's promise to unleash Britain's potential is nothing more than empty rhetoric.

    We haven't even left yet.

    Boris Johnson's government has set out a disastrous agenda which will force through a hard Brexit, undermine our public services, destroy opportunities for our communities and cripple living standards.

    Brexit will hinder our ability to safeguard our NHS and reduce our capacity to tackle the climate crisis.

    The fact that radical climate action has been ignored is a hallmark of a government which is setting all the wrong priorities.

    Voting reform is not about the electoral advantage of any party.

    It is about better democracy.

    As politicians we have a responsibility to ensure voters across the UK do not feel disenfranchised.

    In this election the Liberal Democrats increased their vote share by 4%, more than any other party, but achieved fewer seats in Parliament.

    Boris' bad Brexit bill is before the House of Commons today.

    So what are we doing to fight the damaging and dangerous effects it will have on democratic scrutiny, workers' rights, the battle against the climate crisis, and more?

    Today, we tabled an amendment to block the Withdrawal Agreement Bill because:
