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.

    The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the enormous contributions that workers from all over the world make to our country and our communities.

    Tens of thousands of doctors, nurses and other NHS staff. Hundreds of thousands of social care workers. And millions more in sectors hit hard by this crisis, from restaurants and hotels to construction and manufacturing.

    In the midst of the Covid 19 crisis it is easy to think it is the only issue in town. But there is another issue that as Liberals we should not need reminding of.

    One aspect of it was highlighted to me this week when a friend told me that he cannot give blood.

    My friend would like to help by providing blood from which plasma could be used in the fight against COVID-19 but regardless of how rare his blood group might be, of how healthy he is, he cannot donate because he is gay.

    Following the 2019 General Election, the Federal Board commissioned Dorothy Thornhill and her team of fourteen to conduct an independent review of the Party's performance.

    The Liberal Democrats are committed to a fair and open society and reflect that in our internal approach to transparency and accountability. The resulting report is therefore available here in its entirety.

    Before being an MP, I was a teacher. I'm keenly aware that every day schools remain shut the disadvantage gap widens and the students in need of the most support from teachers and support staff are being left behind. More than this, it's the most vulnerable children I'm most worried about. Are they eating? Are they safe, let alone learning?

    How do we improve as a party and achieve greater success in future elections?

    That's the theme running through the bumper set of key decisions the Federal Board is looking at next week at our meeting. (Or rather meetings, as to avoid Zoom fatigue, we're splitting one long meeting into halves on consecutive nights.)

    Taxi drivers, hairdressers, cleaners, childcare providers and millions more self-employed people have seen their incomes evaporate as people rightly stay at home to save lives. They desperately need the Government to support them.

    Reports suggest that the NHS tracing app is set to be rolled out nationwide by end of next week, despite concerns about privacy and misuse of personal data.

    That's why we're calling on the government to bring forward a new "Safe Trace App Law", to ensure the Government's coronavirus tracing app is safe and effective.

    The Furlough scheme has helped protect jobs and it is something the Liberal Democrats have campaigned to protect.

    So we are delighted the Government has done just that and adopted many of our ideas.

    However there are still millions of people that need significant help through this challenging period.
