    Life's been tough for lots of people over the past few years. And it's still tough. But with their trademark decency and strength, the British people are rising to the challenge. Raising families. Caring for others. And playing by the rules.

    Amjad Abbasi says: "Now more than ever, it's time for a fair deal."

    The Spring statement was a Sunak Swindle - hiking up people's taxes today while promising to cut them in future.

    Rishi Sunak is following Boris Johnson's lead by not being up front and honest with the country.

    Buried in the small print is a tax bombshell that will see the average family paying Β£1,600 more in taxes over the coming years.

    At this dark moment, our security depends on urgently forging a relationship that works with our closest neighbours. Countering the grave threat posed by Putin means we must stand tall with our European allies instead of needlessly antagonising them, while working closely together on issues like energy security, trade and helping Ukrainian refugees, said Layla Moran, Lib Dem, MP for Oxford West and Abingdon (see left).

    Air pollution is to blame for nearly 40,000 deaths each year in the UK.

    Everyone has the right to clean air, but it's a right many people in the UK are unable to realise. The Conservatives have repeatedly failed to take meaningful action to address this killer, says Wera Hobhouse, Lib Dem MP fpr Bath (pictured left).

    In the House of Commons, nine of the Liberal Democrats' thirteen MPs are women. This year for International Women's Day, our MPs are proposing nine new Bills which embody the principles at the heart of our party.

    Our passion for gender equality will help drive business at the heart of our democracy this week, tackling problems affecting women and girls in the UK and beyond.

    So many of us have been watching in horror as the unfolding war on the Eastern edge of Europe has unfolded, we've watched the news and wept as we see people fleeing, cowering in the shelters and having their lives ripped apart. We've also marvelled at the bravery and tenacity of the Ukrainian people as they fight to save the country they love from Putin's army.

    Boris Johnson lied to you and treated you with contempt.

    Millions of people obeyed the lockdown rules, often at huge personal cost. They missed funerals, cancelled weddings and said goodbye to dying loved ones on video calls - some on the very day that Number Ten hosted a garden party.

    Boris Johnson has become a threat to the health of our nation

  • 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.

    Getting parties to work together to find solutions to problems is more likely to come from a change to a fairer, proportional, voting system, said Slough Lib Dem Chair, Matthew Taylor in the Slough Express on Friday 15 Oct.

    Matthew explained how it was the current electoral system that gave Prime Minister Johnson a large majority of seats in Parliament, but with well under 50% of the votes.

    During the awful violence in May, Britain was absent from the world stage - despite our historic responsibilities to the region.

    That's why today we have set out a route map proposed by Layla Moran MP, Lib Dems Forieign Affairs spokesperson, for the UK Government to follow in its engagement with the region. It is vital that long-term underlying tensions are to be addressed if we hope to achieve a lasting peace rather than a short term truce.
