Lib Dems outline waste plan in election manifesto

Rent-to-own scheme one of key planks of Lib Dem manifesto

I like them. They're good people.

Elsewhere in the manifesto the Lib Dems said it wants to expand the "Financial Conduct Authority's remit to include a statutory duty to promote financial inclusion as one of its key objectives".

The party won 57 seats in 2010 - becoming the third largest party - but slumped to eight in the 2015 election, but hopes to recover its position as the UK's third largest party in the June 8 election by appealing to the large number of voters opposed to Brexit.

In the face of opinion polls suggesting the Lib Dems are failing to make a breakthrough, Mr Farron urged Britons to follow the lead of French voters who rejected the "two exhausted old parties" to elect President Emmanuel Macron.

The party, which suffered in the 2015 election when it was left with just eight MPs, has also said it will raise all income tax by 1p to raise £6bn for the NHS and social care services and promised its flagship policy of delivering a second European Union referendum following the conclusion of Brexit negotiations.

"The Liberal Democrats want you to have a choice over your future".

In a nod to their recently released paper outlining ways to bolster the creative industry, the Lib Dems say they will be "supporting modern and flexible patent, copyright and licensing rules".

Mrs May's decision to pull Britain out of the single market was not on the ballot paper previous year and any final Brexit deal should be subject to a second referendum, he said.

The upcoming United Kingdom elections are unlikely to deliver enough certainty about what life will look like post-Brexit, said the former MEP and ALDE leader in an interview with EURACTIV.com, adding that no winners will emerge from the process.

Scottish Lib Dem candidate Jo Swinson said the party would also take positive steps to support the Scottish economy.

Under the Conservative government's current plans for a new funding formula, schools in Birmingham will lose £20 million.

But it also features £9.7bn worth of extra benefit spending, including reversing cuts to universal credit, increasing carers' allowance, abolishing the bedroom tax, returning housing benefit to 18-year-olds and reversing the two-child cap on child benefit.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron told Hindustan Times: "It is ludicrous that we take in Indian students, train them, and then as soon as they are skilled and ready to work, the Conservatives boot them out of the country".

The Liberal Democrats have set a building target of 300,000 new homes a year, have pledged to scrap housing association Right To Buy, and demand that new homes should be marketed to British buyers first before being sold to overseas investment buyers.

The party plans to bring in a diesel scrappage scheme and ban the sale of diesel cars and small vans by 2025, while motorists will also face new levies in ultra-low emission zones in 10 towns and cities. However, Mr Georgeson is understood not to have contributed specifically to the election manifesto in 2017.
