  • Ed Davey, MP, Leader of the Lib Dems and long-time carer
    Article: Nov 25, 2021

    On Carers Rights Day (25 Nov) the Lib Dems led by Ed Davey continued their long-running campaign to demand a better deal for carers.

    The Covid pandemic has shown that we are a nation of carers. But it's also shown how, for this Conservative Government carers are nothing more than an afterthought.

    From Ministers' abject failure to protect people in care homes, to their refusal to adequately raise Carer's Allowance, carers have been forgotten and ignored again and again.

    Soaring temperatures worldwide, flash flooding in central London and increasing numbers of wildfires. These are just a few ecological disasters we are seeing as a result of climate change. It is painfully obvious we must act.

    The world's largest and most successful companies must pay their fair share. And to do that, we need a global minimum corporation tax.
