This Conservative Government is letting people down badly and taking them for granted. Soaring energy bills, food prices and housing costs are overwhelming millions of families and pensioners. And the Conservatives have made the cost-of-living crisis so much worse - with all their chaos. Crashing the economy and adding hundreds of pounds to people’s monthly mortgage payments. Compounding people’s pain with unfair tax rises and deep cuts to essential public services, just to pay for the damage the Conservatives themselves caused.
Letting the NHS crisis spiral out of control. Failing to deliver the new hospitals they promised. Breaking their pledge to recruit six-thousand more doctors, and actually cutting GP numbers instead.Making people wait hours for an ambulance or months for urgent cancer treatment.
Allowing water companies to pump filthy sewage straight into our rivers, damaging our precious local environment.
And breaking their promise on policing. The Conservatives have left too many communities plagued by burglaries and anti-social behaviour, and they are letting far too many criminals get away with it.
All that must change. This Conservative Government is out of touch, out of ideas and out of excuses.
So let’s send them a message in May: The British people want them out of government.
Everywhere I go, I see the remarkable decency and strength of the British people. Even in the toughest of times, people are working hard, raising families and playing by the rules.Ed Davey
More and more people are turning to the Liberal Democrats. They know we work hard for our communities, we hear your concerns, and we never take you for granted.
Ed launched our campaign in a part of the world where we’ve enjoyed a lot of success recently .
Sarah Green’s historic by-election victory in Chesham and Amersham. Peter Taylor winning re-election as Mayor of Watford. Taking control of St Albans Council, and then winning fifty out of fifty-four seats last year.
But it’s not just happening here.
From Stockport to Surrey, from Eastbourne to Esher, from Horsham to Hull, our campaigns are going from strength to strength.
People who have voted Conservative all their lives are saying “never again”, and backing Liberal Democrat candidates instead.
People who usually vote Labour, but feel let down and taken for granted by Labour locally, are backing Liberal Democrat candidates instead.
It’s why the Liberal Democrats gained more seats than any other party at last year’s local elections.
It’s not just about seeing more of the map coloured gold. It’s not just about beating the Conservatives and Labour.
It’s about getting strong local champions elected to fight for their communities. Strong Liberal Democrat councils elected to deliver a fair deal. And building a strong base to get more Liberal Democrats elected to Parliament next year.
Vote Liberal Democrat for a fair deal.
