Liberal Democrats on Labour

Labour cannot be trusted to build a stronger economy. They crashed the economy and have no answers on how to create jobs and get the economy growing.

  • “There’s no money left” – Labour nearly bankrupted Britain. We are cleaning up their mess
  • Labour let the banks run wild. They cosied up to gamblers in the City of London and left us all with a huge bill when the banks collapsed
  • Labour’s numbers don’t add up. Their extra spending and unfunded tax cuts would break their own debt rules and add £201bn to the UK’s debt for our children and grandchildren to pay off (source: IFS)
  • Research shows that Labour have made £27.9bn of unfunded spending commitments in the three months since Ed Miliband committed to ‘discipline on borrowing’

Despite scaremongering for years, they have been proved wrong. Wrong on the economy. Wrong that unemployment would soar. Time and time again Ed Miliband has been called upon to make a decision and time and time again he has ducked it. He has no answers to some of the biggest questions facing the country:

  • Where do Labour stand on the economy?
  • Where do Labour stand on welfare?
  • Where do Labour stand on Europe?
  • What is the Labour policy on schools?
  • What is the Labour policy on the NHS?
