Ten reasons for voting Liberal Democrat are outlined below in an article for the Newshub but Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of the Liberal Democrats, speaks for himself first.

Deficit Reduction

“Importantly, Liberal Democrats will cut £50bn less than the Tories and borrow £70bn less than Labour, making our plans the fairest of the lot.”  David Laws, Head of the General Election Manifesto 2015.

Electoral Reform

The Liberal Democrats are profoundly democratic believing in greater devolution within the United Kingdom.  Proportional representation gives the smaller parties like the Greens and the nationalist parties a greater voice in Parliament.  Reform of the House of Lords will make it a majority elected rather than an appointed Chamber.  Read more about reforming politics here.
