I am putting fairness at the heart of the Liberal Democrat campaign

People in Warwick and Leamington are rightly frustrated with their politicians. I am going into the election with a clear direction and a manifesto that is short, direct and to the point.

Fairer Taxes
We will introduce fairer taxes by closing loopholes for the richest, introducing a tax on mansions and tax cuts of £700 for everyone else.

Fair Start for every Child
If your child is at a local school we can promise investment to help reduce class sizes, improve discipline and develop one-to-one tuition.

Fairer & Cleaner Politics
We would also give you the right to sack your MP. The Liberal Democrats are the only party committed to real change of our political system, flushing out big money and corrupt donors and reducing the number of MPs by 150.

Fairer and Sustainable Economy

And we will rebuild the economy in every part of Britain in a way that promotes green technology and creates lasting jobs. We will put an end to casino banking, bring back competition and support local entrepreneurs to make sure businesses in Warwickshire can find the money they need to grow.

The coming months are a crucial time for politics and I will be using them to focus on these four priorities and delivering real change for Warwick and Leamington.
