The North Hertfordshire Liberal Democrats

We are the champions for liberal values across the North Herts district. Locally, we will use our position on the council to deliver meaningful and progressive change on behalf of residents. Nationally, we want to build a fairer society, but also keep the economy strong and secure. Internationally we want the UK to remain part of Europe, and to lead the response to global challenges like climate change. If you share our values and objectives, please give us your support.

    "Our policies are the most progressive of the three main parties."

    The Resolution Foundation, an independent think-tank, has released a report on child poverty. You can find this here.

    It found that our policies would mean 600,000 fewer children in poverty by 2023-24.

    The UK produces 2.26 million tonnes of plastic packaging every year.

    Less than half of this is being recycled.

    The Conservatives claimed they will cut plastic pollution. They announced a deposit return scheme in 2018, but it is currently due to be implemented by 2023.

    In reality, all the Tories have done is try to get headlines with piecemeal bans on straws and stirrers.

    "Only someone as deceitful as Boris Johnson could dress up exploiting nurses as a gift to the NHS."

    Not only is Boris Johnson's pledge for 50,000 nurses not true.

    The Conservatives are trying to profit from taxing hardworking nurses.

    The Conservative's manifesto commitment includes 12,000 nurses from abroad. The visa fee will be £464 for EU and international nurses. The cost to the Home Office of processing one of those visa applications, however?

    "We will put the UK at the heart of global efforts to protect our marine environment."

    Our marine environment is in crisis. Programmes like the BBC's Blue Planet 2 have revealed the scale of the threat.

    The world's beloved marine species like whales and turtles face numerous threats. Plastic pollution, over-fishing, high volumes of shipping traffic, and rising temperatures are but a few.

    "The UK under Johnson will become President Trump's poodle."

    Johnson is desperate to secure a US trade deal to make up for the damage done to our global standing if Brexit happens.

    Close alignment with US rules and regulations will be demanded. We risk becoming a vassal state of the US if Boris Johnson gets a majority.

    One in three women will experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime. More women are killed or incapacitated by violence against them than by cancer. Every week, two women in England in Wales are killed by a current or former partner.

    Faced with these facts it seems almost impossible to imagine the mountain we need to climb to end violence against women. We need to take bold action now to tackle this crisis. This International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, I'm proud to set out the Liberal Democrat plan to protect women from violence.
