The Liberal Democrats have launched their plan for the election. We want to Stop Brexit, Build a Brighter Future. Stopping Brexit, will generate a Remain Bonus for the public finances because under Remain, the economy will grow faster than under Brexit, leading to higher GDP and consequently higher public sector current receipts. This adds up to £50 billion over 5 years. This number is a fair assessment of the best available forecasts, comparing Remain to a Brexit deal scenario based on Institute for Fiscal Studies data. Ian said: The Liberal Democrats are standing up to stop Brexit and build a brighter future for the UK. Brexit has taken far longer and cost far more than anyone said it would. But any form of Brexit will damage our jobs, our economy and our public services, starving them of vital cash as the economy struggles along. The Liberal Democrats will stop Brexit and then use the £50bn Remain Bonus to invest in our public services. Every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to stop Brexit, build a brighter future and invest the £50bn Remain bonus in our vital public services. Continue reading

83% of our schools nationwide will still lose out next year because of the Conservative’s cuts to school funding. Despite promises to increase funding, the detail of the Government’s latest announcement shows it is nowhere near enough, falling well short of correcting the shortfall for every child. Crucially, it fails to reverse the cuts schools have suffered since 2015. As the crisis in school funding continues, we have the largest class sizes in the developed world. One in 8 secondary pupils are in classes with over 30 students. How can we expect children to learn and thrive in this environment? As the Dad of a primary school child, I am determined to ensure our schools in South Cambridgeshire are fully funded. They should not have to make the difficult decision that many South Cambs schools of having to cut staff hours. If you agree with me, sign my petition and join me to demand better for our schools.

There’s going to be a General Election. It’s on, and there’s everything to play for. For more than three years I have campaigned for Remain and our next step to stopping Brexit here in South Cambridgeshire is electing the pro-Remain candidate with the best chance of winning to be our next MP - and I passionately believe that is me. Heidi Allen has made a what I'm sure has been an incredibly difficult decision and one she or any other MP shouldn’t have been forced to make. It’s not right for anyone to be treated this way. But I'm proud to be picking up the baton again as the candidate for South Cambs Lib Dems. Continue reading
