For decades, the Liberal Democrats have fought for an open, tolerant and united Britain, often as the lone voices of dissent on issues the political establishment didn’t care about.
We campaigned for the rights of British passport holders in Hong Kong and for Gurkhas who had fought with the British Armed Forces. We were pro-environment long before it was fashionable and against the Iraq War when the other main parties voted in favour.
In 2010 we joined the government, putting the country first at a time of crisis in order to bring stability to the economy.
But since last year you have seen what happens without us. A Conservative-only Government showing its true colours: reckless, divisive and uncaring.
People have been let down for decades by short-termist politicians who put the needs of one part of society above the rest. Now, in the wake of the Brexit vote those divisions are more exposed than ever before. If you look around at politics at the moment you see the Liberal Democrats are needed more than ever.
The Conservatives; We believe that without us to restrain them they are showing their true colours: reckless, divisive and uncaring.
Labour; We believe that under Jeremy Corbyn they are hopelessly divided, have no plan for the economy and are clearly unfit for government. He is obsessed with re-fighting the battles of the past and ignoring the damage the Government is doing to our future.
In both the Conservatives and Labour, the moderate, centrist and pro-European among them have lost control of their party.
That’s why the Liberal Democrats are needed more than ever. We are the real voice of opposition to the Conservative Brexit Government and the only party fighting to keep Britain open, tolerant and united.
