What’s in the Liberal Democrat Plan for a Brighter Future?

Jo Swinson and the Lib Dem plan for a brighter future

Jo Swinson last week launched the Liberal Democrats’ Plan for a Brighter Future ahead of starting her national election tour.

The plan outlines the party’s key priority – to stop Brexit – and sets out a bold plan to build a fairer, brighter future for the country. It is a plan to tackle inequalities, confront the climate emergency and give everyone the opportunities they need to succeed.

The old politics has failed. For too many people, working hard and playing by the rules is not enough to guarantee a happy, fulfilling and secure life for them and their children.

A Liberal Democrat government will create a shared vision for the country we want to be, where every single person and community is valued, empowered and cared for, and where we protect our planet for future generations.

A Liberal Democrat government will revoke Article 50 on day one, work to keep our family of nations together and build a brighter future.

The Liberal Democrat Plan for a Brighter Future

  1.  Stop Brexit and invest the £50 billion Remain Bonus in public services and tackling inequality.
  2. Tackle the climate emergency by generating 80% of our electricity from renewables by 2030 and insulating all low-income homes by 2025.
  3. Give every child the best start in life by recruiting 20,000 more teachers as part of an extra £10 billion a year for schools.
  4. Build a fairer economy by providing free childcare from 9 months and giving every adult £10,000 to spend on skills and training throughout their lives. Transform our mental health services by treating mental health with the same urgency as physical health.

Jo Swinson said:

Today I am proud to set out the Liberal Democrats’ bold and ambitious plan to build a brighter future.

Too many people – people who work hard and play by the rules – are struggling just to get by. Our country is crying out for a new kind of leadership and the Liberal Democrats are rising to this challenge.

Our plan to build a brighter future starts with stopping Brexit, generating a £50 billion Remain Bonus that will benefit every part of the United Kingdom, but it doesn’t stop there.

It is a plan to transform the mental health services that are so integral to our wellbeing. It is a plan to give every child the best start in life, providing the resources to recruit thousands more teachers and funding free childcare from nine months. It is a plan that will tackle the climate emergency, to make sure the planet we live on is protected for future generations.

This is a plan to stop Brexit and build a brighter future. As leader of the Liberal Democrats, I am thrilled to be sharing our vision with people living and working right across our family of nations.

  1. Plan for a brighter future. Is this going to go to EVERY voter in a leaflet? We cannot guarentee the media will give us the coverage.

  2. My view is that our leader Jo has made a fine start to our campaign to win over the hearts and souls of out voters. All candidates now need to keep up the pressure through leaflets. Dont worry about repeating the same message – its what advertisers on the TV and it works!
    Befriend and keep in touch with the editors – give them some juicy news to keep them interested in what we are doing. Whilst it is true we cannot hope to win all the seats we can certainly make real efforts in our target seats and any seats we have won in the past – and no longer hold – lets do our utmost to get our supporters back back into the Lib Dem family!
