LD demand betterThere are five top reasons to vote Liberal Democrats in the General Election on 12 December 2019.

  1. For Radical Climate Action - with a Liberal Democrat government, 80% of our electricity will be renewably sourced by 2030.
  2. To Give Every Child the Best Start in Life - we're proud to have introduced the pupil premium to help level the playing field for children from low-income backgrounds. A Liberal Democrat government will go even further. We'll invest £10 billion in our schools every year so that every child can reach their full potential. We will recruit 20,000 new teachers to solve the staffing crisis in our schools.
  3. For a Fairer Economy - we need to revolutionise our economy and make it fairer for the workers of today and tomorrow. The Liberal Democrats will give every adult £10,000 to spend on skills and training throughout their life - making sure our changing job market leaves no-one behind. We'll introduce free childcare from nine months, so no new parent has to choose between family and work.
  4. To Transform our Mental Health Services - the state of mental health services in our country is a disgrace. The NHS has been starved of the cash it desperately needs to cope with the mental health crisis in the UK. The situation won't improve until we treat mental health with the same importance and urgency as physical health. A Liberal Democrat government will inject £11 billion directly into mental health services.
  5. To Stop Brexit - every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote stop the Brexit mess the that Conservatives and Labour have left us in. A Liberal Democrat government will Stop Brexit on day one. Then we'll use the £50 billion Remain Bonus to properly fund our public services and tackle inequality across the country.
