    Today, we can finally share our full Plan for the Future with you!

    This manifesto is a bold plan to build a brighter future for our country.

    That starts with stopping Brexit.

    The Liberal Democrats will build a brighter future for people and our planet.

    Labour and the Conservatives can't offer the country a brighter future because they both want Brexit. We know that will be bad for our economy, bad for our NHS and bad for our environment.

  • Article: Nov 20, 2019

    For too many people, things aren't working as they should be. The Conservatives and Labour are stuck in the past, failing time and again to deliver a better future.

    Brexit chaos has distracted from the real issues facing our country. While the Tories and Labour are squabbling over the latest Brexit deal, the country is in crisis.

    Our schools should be world class, helping every child make the most of the challenges ahead. But instead, they are trailing behind.

    The Conservatives have cut school funding to the bone and children have paid the price, especially those with the most complex needs.

    Highly valued, well trained teachers are the most important resource we have in our education system. Liberal Democrats will recruit 20,000 more teachers and give them the pay and support they deserve.

    1. 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.

    Article: Nov 19, 2019

    Rushcliffe Liberal Democrat candidate Jason Billin has spelled out what the loss of EU funding to improve UK flood defences would mean for the local area, following the statement by Liberal Democrat Leader Jo Swinson https://www.libdems.org.uk/climate-emergency-fund

    Visiting parts of Rushcliffe that were brought to a standstill by flooding last week, Jason said: "We desperately need to invest in drainage and water run-off schemes able to cope with the heavier rainfall that is sure to come again in future years. This work needs longer term planning and serious funding to get it right but we will miss out on EU help for this if we leave."
