UK Lib Dems put Brexit at center of manifesto

Posted May 27, 2017

"It's encouraging to see that both the Labour party and Liberal Democrats have recognised the importance of a well-funded education system for our children and the future of this country". You don't have to accept Theresa May and Nigel Farage's extreme version of Brexit that will wreck the future for you, your family, your schools and hospitals.

The Lib Dems have always been against the legislation.

The tactic has won the backing of Nicole Verat-Pant, a French citizen who can not vote in the upcoming election but whose husband will vote for the Lib Dems.

And while the party is gaining support from elsewhere, with 17% of new backers former Conservatives and 15% from Labour, there hasn't been a significant shift.

He said: "You can be pretty much absolutely certain the Liberal Democrats would get their money if they did this, and actually Labour wouldn't get that much money".

The polls aren't showing the huge comeback the party wants and the hope is that policies addressing the things people worry about will remind voters what the Lib Dems stand for.

The U.K.'s Liberal Democrats call for a second Brexit referendum in their election manifesto, as well as preserving free movement and remaining in the single market.

Mr Farron, who is due to launch his party's manifesto on Wednesday evening, spent the morning visiting Holland Park School in west London.

You wait ages for the main parties to launch their election manifestos and then two come along (almost) at once.

Give almost £7 billion extra for schools and colleges including protecting per-pupil funding in real terms. As part of raising the number, and quality of apprenticeships, we will ensure that all the receipts from the Apprenticeship Levy in England are spent on training, aiming to fund a wider range of types of training. Ukip are right, they have changed the narrative for the Conservative Party to attract Ukip voters. "Provision to outlaw already exists in the Equalities Act 2010, but successive governments have failed to implement that provision despite people in Britain continuing to be affected by this pernicious form of discrimination", said Sat Pal Muman, chair of CasteWatchUk.

Mr Farron's said that Theresa May offers a "cold, mean-spirited" Britain his visision of an "open, tolerant and united" nation.

On rail, the Lib Dems say they will "ensure that new rail franchises include a stronger focus on customers, including a programme of investment in new stations, lines and modern trains".
