Tories simply don't get public transport

  • The Conservatives have overseen a decline of more than 200 million bus journeys since 2015 and failed to invest in railways, all while Johnson dreams up vanity projects like his island airport, a dud garden bridge and London buses that don't work.
  • The Tories simply don't get the need for excellent public transport which gives people a real alternative to individual car use.
  • Boris Johnson's reckless Brexit plans would be disastrous for the economy, meaning less money to fund vital transport and infrastructure projects.
  • The Liberal Democrats will invest in improving our rail network and restoring bus routes across the UK, as well as freeze rail fares for five years. Our plans will help more people find alternatives to car use that fits in with their busy lives.
  • By stopping Brexit we can invest the £50 billion remain bonus in projects that will bring real improvements for people across the UK, tackle the climate emergency and build a brighter future for all.

    I want to send my best wishes to Muslims in the UK and across the world as we welcome the Holy Month of Ramadan.

    Ramadan is a time of reflection, renewal and generosity. These are much needed in our communities, our politics and all our lives.

    A second year observing Ramadan with restrictions on meeting together will be difficult. Holding an iftar will be different, loved ones will be missed and celebrations will be muted.

    On behalf of her family, it is with great sadness that we announce that Shirley Williams, Baroness Williams of Crosby, died peacefully in the early hours of Monday April 12th.


    Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said:

    This is heartbreaking for me and for our whole Liberal Democrat family.

    Shirley has been an inspiration to millions, a Liberal lion and a true trailblazer. I feel privileged to have known her, listened to her and worked with her. Like so many others, I will miss her terribly.

    "Prince Philip dedicated his life to our country. We will always be grateful for his amazing service, not least the powerful legacy he leaves to millions of young people who have taken part in his unique Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.

    "His quiet and steadfast counsel and support of The Queen, is perhaps his greatest if unquantifiable contribution to our nation's history.

    "At this sad time for millions, we should never forget Prince Philip was a much-loved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. So our thoughts must be with the whole Royal Family, but in particular with The Queen at this difficult time."
