Lib Dems highlight second EU referendum in manifesto

U.K. Liberal Democrats to Promise Final Brexit Vote in Manifesto Lib Dems expected to make second EU referendum key manifesto plank
Kenny Thornton | 20 May, 2017, 06:37

"People can vote for Labour or the Conservatives and they will get slightly different shades of a hard Brexit, which will damage the economy, or they can vote for the Lib Dems who want to remain close to Europe".

The sale of new diesel cars and small vans would be banned by 2025 if the Liberal Democrats win the upcoming general election.

Lift the borrowing cap on local authorities and increase the borrowing capacity of housing associations so that they can build council and social housing.

Home cultivation would also be allowed.

Mr Farron said: "Air pollution in the United Kingdom is a killer".

'In the biggest fight for the future of our country in a generation, Jeremy Corbyn's Labour has let you down by voting with Theresa May on Brexit, not against her.

Labour has "lost the right to call themselves the opposition" by failing to make a stand on Brexit, Mr Farron said.

"And if the deal that (Prime Minister) Theresa May comes back with is not good enough for you and your family, you should have the right to reject it and to vote to remain", he added.

"This election is about your choice over your future".

And in an appeal to voters to support the Lib Dems, he said: "Theresa May and Nigel Farage's cold, mean-spirited Britain is not the Britain I love".

United Kingdom law must also seek to maintain environmental standards while "maximum cooperation" is needed in fighting crime alongside the European Union, the document adds.

"Immigration is essential to our economy and a benefit to our society". An extra £6 billion would be spent on health and an extra £7 billion on education. Waiting time standards for mental health would match physical health and there would be an integration of the NHS and social care systems. Labour wants to create a National Care Service with £8 billion in funding over five years.
