Brian Paddick's Passionate Plea For Remainers To Vote Lib Dem

Ellis Copeland | 17 May, 2017, 13:56

The Lib Dems have made a new promise to up and coming entrepreneurs.

Lib Dem prospective parliamentary candidate (PPC) Kelly-Marie Blundell said the party's manifesto, which is set to be officially published on Wednesday (May 17), will include plans to set-up government-run companies to take over the running of both Southern Rail and Govia Thameslink.

The Liberal Democrats are hoping to win over scores of young voters with some eye-catching pledges in their general election manifesto, including a plan to legalise cannabis.

The party also committed to fighting Conservative attempts to undermine encryption, which it warned will put people's online security at risk.

It will also allocate £420 million to protect the pupil premium in real terms up to 2022 and £165 million for improved continuing professional development for teachers. "You should have your say on the Brexit deal in a referendum".

Research by the Liberal Democrats has shown an estimated 18,000 young people will be potentially hit by the government's decision to strip 18-21 year olds of housing benefit, which came into force in the beginning of April.

As part of a bid to help people on to the housing ladder, the Lib Dems would allow renters to build up equity with every monthly payment. "And if you don't like the deal you should be able to reject it and choose to remain in Europe".

Mr Farron, who has claimed he wants to become leader of the opposition, will accuse Theresa May of offering an alternative vision of a "cold, mean-spirited Britain".

The bus pass discount on single and return tickets will be available to all 16-21 year olds ordinarily resident in England, using the same mechanism as the National Concessionary Scheme for the over-60s.

Liberal Democrat election spokesman Sir Ed Davey dismissed the suggestion on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, saying Mr Farron had made it clear he is pro-choice and "we wouldn't change the law".

The manifesto will commit to investing nearly £7bn in schools and colleges, doubling the number of businesses that take apprenticeships, tripling the early years pupil premium and extending free school meals to all primary school students.

The party has already said it would abolish the public sector pay cap, which limits pay rises for staff in schools and hospitals to one per cent per year until 2020.
