Nick Clegg’s Personal Guarantee

“This is my personal guarantee that I will use all the support you give me on Thursday to deliver fairness in Britain.

“We need a fairer tax system. I will use your votes to cut taxes for those at the bottom and in the middle and close the loopholes for those at the top.

“We need to support our children. I will use your votes to ensure extra funding for schools, to cut class sizes and give all children a fair chance.

“We need to clean up politics. I will use your votes to reform Parliament, to deliver a fairer voting system, protect your freedoms and give you the right to sack corrupt MPs.

“We need a new economy. I will use your vote to split up the banks, get them lending again, invest in green infrastructure and so create jobs.

“This election campaign has shown us that millions of people want us to do something different this time.

“Politicians should work together to solve the nation’s biggest problems.

“That is why, whatever the outcome on Thursday, I believe we should be prepared to work together to fix the terrible state of our public finances and ensure economic stability.

“These are the key steps to a new, fairer Britain. Give me the power of your vote and we can make it happen.

“Together, we can make the difference.”

The latest broadcast from the Liberal Democrats

Bury under the Conservatives – Must Do Better

“Bury Council could do better.” That’s the verdict from local people fed up with rising Council Tax bills and failing services under the Conservatives. Liberal Democrats have investigated the Council’s record since the Conservatives took control of the Town Hall in 2007, and have found big cuts in services at the same time as big increases in bills. Take a look at Bury under the Conservatives. If this is what they’re doing in Bury, imagine what they’d do to the country if they were in charge!

Let’s FIX Bury Council

Screen shot 2010-04-25 at 06.02.59

The Liberal Democrats in Bury have launched their plans for a Liberal Democrat run Bury Council:

A Liberal Democrat Bury will:

1 – Get the Basics Right
We’ll concentrate on making sure that the basic services that everyone needs work well. This will include spending more money on street repairs and getting bin collections working and better gritting.

2 – Better Place to Live
We’ll make sure everything we do helps make our towns and communities better places to live. Our first priorities will be improving our environment and making people feel safe from crime. This will include providing extra community policing in each town of Bury.

3 – Power to the People
We’ll cut back Town Hall bureaucracy and give power back to local towns and citizens. Everything we do will be open and fair and involve local people. We will immediately give back the right of people to ask questions at every meeting of the Council.

4 – More Money in Your Pocket
We will keep Council Tax as low as we can, and make what Bury Council does great value for money for local people.
