    Liberal Democrats release 'manifesto with opportunity at its heart'

    The Liberal Democrats have today released their 2015 General Election manifesto, describing it as a 'manifesto with opportunity at its heart'.
    Clive Jones, Liberal Democrat candidate for Wokingham says: "This manifesto is a blueprint for a stronger economy and a fairer society.

    "This manifesto is a plan to finish the job of balancing the books, and to do so fairly by protecting our schools, hospitals and public services. I will also want to do more in government for cancer patients improving diagnosis of this awful disease.

    "This manifesto is an insurance policy against a government lurching off to the extremes.

    "At its heart is one word that is absolutely central to what Liberal Democrats believe: opportunity.

    "No matter who you are, where you were born, what sexuality or religion you are or what colour your skin is, you should have the same opportunity to get on in life.

    "With our electoral system the voters of Wokingham have two choices, the Conservative candidate John Redwood who for the last 5 years has spent much of his week working for other businesses rather than being a full time MP. Or, Clive Jones the Liberal Democrat candidate who will work FULL TIME for the residents of Wokingham"

    Many of your will have received a letter from me recently seeking donations to fund our campaign in West Berkshire.

    Thank you to everyone who has contributed - we could not do it without you! I know every campaigner always says that, but all donations, at this stage, are going directly towards printing our election materials, delivering news about the policies we've delivered in government, such as reforming schools funding, pensions and taxation, and our aims for the future - such as the Five Green Laws, £8bn (costed) for the NHS and ring-fenced funding for education from cradle to college are delivered to local voters. In 2015, the newspapers are not going to do the job for us!

    "Once again Labour have failed to match the Liberal Democrats' commitment to investing the £8bn extra the NHS says it needs to survive.

    "Instead, Andy Burnham tries to pretend the Liberal Democrats haven't set out how we will pay for the extra investment. Which we have, in full.

    "Labour's paltry offer for the NHS is just another example of their failure on healthcare. From over-generous GP contracts, £12bn wasted on a failed supercomputer, and PFI hospitals that saddle generations with debt - no one can trust Labour with the NHS."

    · Non Dom charges introduced by Liberal Democrats in Government would have raised £2bn had Labour introduced them during their 13 years in power.

    · The Liberal Democrats in Government have increased the amount of money Non Doms pay in tax this parliament - raising £160m-a-year for the public purse - by increasing the annual charges they are required to pay.
