  • Ed Davey, MP, Leader of the Lib Dems and long-time carer
    Article: Jun 11, 2021
    By Ed Davey - Leader of the Liberal Democrats

    People looking after their loved ones too often feel forgotten. Lib Dem leader, Ed Davey said:

    Yesterday, I spent some time meeting with a wonderful group of unpaid carers.

    We had been brought together by Carers UK and a number of other carers' organisations as part of Carers Week, so they could share their experiences directly with me and we could discuss what changes might make their lives better.

    Sixty six children have died since the outbreak of violence last week.

    We cannot afford yet another return to a status quo which will only lead to more innocent deaths in the future.

    Every death was completely preventable.

    And while a ceasefire is welcome, we cannot return to a status quo.

    We need to take meaningful action now to prevent innocent deaths in the future, says Layla Moran, Lib Dem MP.

    We must rebuild as a fairer, greener and more caring country in the aftermath of Covid.

    Boris Johnson has utterly failed to deliver an ambitious programme, said Ed Davey MP, Lib Dem leader.

    So it is crushingly disappointing that the Government's plans will fail on so many grounds - still failing small businesses and the self-employed, still not rising properly to the climate challenge and still ignoring millions of people caring for loved ones at home.

    Article: May 5, 2021

    "As a victim of knife crime myself, I fully agree with Slough Lib Dems Sukh Dhillon and Jo Hanney that we need to adopt innovative approaches to tackle crime more effectively." This was the message from John Howson, Lib Dem Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner candidate, when he visited Slough on 23rd April.

    Sukh Dhillon says, "On the important issues of foodbanks, I'm pleased to be one of the Slough Lib Dem candidates who have pledged our support to the work aimed at ending the need for #foodbanks in our community.

    If elected on 6 May, we shall be in a stronger position to do this. We believe that together we can build a #HungerFreeFuture @TrussellTrust

  • Daisy Cooper, MP for St Albans, Deputy Leader of the Lib Dems
    Article: Apr 29, 2021

    Yesterday the Fire Safety Bill passed through Parliament without vital protection for leaseholders and tenants against exorbitant bills for fire remediation works.

    The Tory government's failure to address the fire safety scandal properly is now a scandal in itself.

    The devastating consequences of this Bill passing cannot be overstated, says Lib Dem Deputy Leader, Daisy Cooper.

  • Ed Davey, MP, Leader of the Lib Dems and long-time carer
    Article: Apr 19, 2021

    Being a carer can be rewarding and full of love.

    But it's far from glamorous. It can be relentless and exhausting.

    900,000 full-time unpaid carers rely on Carer's Allowance - but at just £67.25 a week, it's not nearly enough.

    More than a third of those on Carer's Allowance are struggling to make ends meet.

    Everyone has the right to feel safe where they live, and everyone who has been the victim of a crime deserves justice.

    But for too long, this Conservative Government has been ignoring victims, failing the police and letting our communities down.

    And that's why, last year, 1.8 million cases were closed without a suspect even being identified.

  • Shirley Willaims-RIP
    Article: Apr 12, 2021

    Shirley Williams, Baroness Williams of Crosby, died peacefully in the early hours of Monday April 12th. Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said:

    This is heartbreaking for me and for our whole Liberal Democrat family.

    Shirley has been an inspiration to millions, a Liberal lion and a true trailblazer. I feel privileged to have known her, listened to her and worked with her. Like so many others, I will miss her terribly.
