Liberal Democrat Leader and Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg has launched the Liberal Democrat 2013 local election campaign. In his speech, he set out how Liberal Democrats have the right priorities in tough times.
For example, Liberal Democrat-controlled local authorities protect the services people value most and last year, no Liberal Democrat-led council closed any libraries.
This is in contrast to Labour and the Conservatives’ record in local government. It shows that, even when millions of families are feeling the pinch, they’ll both squander taxpayers’ money on waste, inefficiency and their own vanity projects.
For example, here in Bucks, the Conservatives are spending £2 million on new windows for County Hall.
Commenting, Chaudhary Ditta said:
“It is scandalous that when ordinary people in Bucks are feeling under pressure because of the difficult economic circumstances, the Conservatives waste £2 million on expensive windows.
“Liberal Democrats know how to choose the right priorities for people here. We are working hard to build a stronger economy in a fairer society, enabling everyone to get on in life.”
The Liberal Democrats are fielding candidates in every seat in the Bucks County Council elections on May 2nd. Labour didn’t win a single seat last time and have failed to put up a candidate in many of the seats this time. In Bucks a vote for Labour could let the Tories sneak back in.
