Tomorrow, your vote matters, everyone knows there will be no party with a majority. The next Government will be parties working together. This will be dependent on the total number of seats, as well as the total share of the national vote.
The Liberal Democrats are standing for decency, stability and unity in this election. I thought you might find it useful to know what the Liberal Democrats “red lines” are – in other words the policies we will guarantee that we will deliver if we go into Coalition again:
1. Invest an extra £8bn a year in the NHS (http://www.libdems.org.uk/backing_the_nhs_is_a_red_line)
2. A stability budget within the first 50 days (http://www.libdems.org.uk/nick-clegg-sets-out-economic-red-line)
3. Increase the personal tax allowance, so you pay no tax up to the minimum wage level (http://www.libdems.org.uk/increasing-the-personal-tax-allowance-is-liberal-democrat-red-line)
4. Protect education funding (http://www.libdems.org.uk/liberal-democrats-set-education-red-line)
5. Pay increases for public sector workers like nurses and police, so that their pay goes up at least with inflation (http://www.libdems.org.uk/prioritising-public-sector-workers-is-a-lib-dem-red-line)
6. Strong leadership at this year’s Paris Climate Change talks (http://www.libdems.org.uk/safeguarding-the-environment-with-five-green-laws)
What others have said about us.
The Independent: Many of the Government’s achievements are owed to the Liberal Democrats. The party has been “a force for progress”.
The People: Lib Dems tempered Tory excess and delivered the last government’s greatest success with a tax-free allowance worth £800.
The FT: The country would benefit from Liberal Democrat “moderation” in Westminster”
Sunday Times: Nick Clegg and his Lib Dem colleagues deserve to stay.
Or from an undecided voter “If I’m brutally honest. I’m not that bothered about the Lib Dem policies. I like their positioning as a calming influence on the austerity mad Tories and the spending mad Labour”
