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.

    Working hard should mean secure work and a decent income, but for too many people that's not the case. In an ever changing workplace, people often need to develop new skills, but the cost of courses and qualifications shuts too many people out.

    Neither the Conservatives or Labour have the answers to these challenges. They are stuck pursuing 20th-century policies that simply won't work in our 21st-century economy. They would take our country backwards.

    A lot of people have noticed something in our online ads… something about "skills wallets".

    So what is a "Skills Wallet"?

    It's a major, new, innovative policy and a key part of our Plan for the Future.

    A Liberal Democrat government will provide every adult with £10,000 to spend on education and training throughout your lives. This "Skills Wallet" is meant to give every person the opportunity to retrain and upskill for jobs that we can't even imagine yet.

    Hard-working doctors and nurses from the EU are fundamental to the NHS. We all have loved ones whose lives have been saved through their skill and dedication.

    But today, the full extent of the Tories' contempt for our dedicated doctors and nurses was revealed.

    Even though the NHS is critically understaffed, the Tories have revealed that part of their nightmarish Brexit plan is to charge EU nurses and doctors £464 to come to the UK to save lives.

    For too many people, things are not working as they should.

    Families are working harder than ever, but far too many are struggling to get by.

    The Conservatives and Labour are taking our country backwards. Their plans don't meet the demands of modern life.

    But the Liberal Democrats have a bold plan to build a brighter future. We want to create a fairer economy where it's easier to be a parent, have a career, and provide for your family.

    Today's high cost of childcare means that too many parents are unable to return to work without risking real financial hardship. With the average cost of 25 hours nursery care for a child under two running to more than £6500 per year, many parents are effectively excluded from work due to the burden of childcare costs.

    We are in the middle of a climate emergency and the world needs urgent action.

    Only the Liberal Democrats have a bold and credible plan to tackle the climate emergency.

    It's front and centre of our plan, because we can't build a brighter future unless we save our planet.

    That's why a Liberal Democrat government will:

    Throughout his career, Boris Johnson has developed a reputation for being less than respectful in the way he speaks (or writes) about women.

    Now, as he faces a general election campaigning against a strong leader and feminist, Jo Swinson, we look back at just a few of the times Boris has shown how he really feels about women.

    Today, Jo Swinson is taking her Leader's Tour of the UK to Scotland to say loud and clear that the Liberal Democrats will protect Scotland's place at the heart of the EU and in the UK.

    A vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to stop Brexit and keep Scotland in the UK. At this general election we're offering voters a real way to stop the chaos.
