What we stand for

Voters face three choices in the coming election. A left-wing Labour party, a right-wing Tory party or a liberal party of the centre ground. Neither Labour nor the Tories can be trusted to govern Britain from the centre ground. 

Labour can't be trusted with the economy. In government, they borrowed and borrowed and nearly bankrupted Britain. Now they want to borrow even more, putting everyone at risk all over again.

The Tories can’t be trusted to treat people fairly or protect your freedoms. That's why we have blocked Tory plans in government to:

Now, with your support, we want to keep building a stronger economy and a fairer society by:

  • Increasing our income tax cut for low and middle earners by lifting the point at which you start paying from £10 000 to £12 500 a year, saving 24 million people another £500.
  • Helping business create a million more jobs by promoting apprenticeships, giving financial support to promising businesses, protecting the science budget to drive innovation and cutting business tax.

Let's never go back to the way things were, because Labour can't be trusted with your money and the Tories can't be trusted to treat people fairly. 

Only the Liberal Democrats in government can be trusted to anchor Britain in the centre ground and build a stronger economy and a fairer society, enabling every person to get on in life.
