Empowerment and freedom - Liberal Democrat Cllr Nick Sandford
I am sometimes asked what Liberal Democrats stand for. We don’t get the media coverage the other two parties receive, so you might be forgiven for not knowing the answer to this question. I could say “we oppose Brexit” and that would be true, but fundamentally I think the thing which Lib Dems most strongly advocate is personal freedom: and not just freedom to do things but also freedom from things such as poverty, ignorance and enforced conformity. That’s why we put a big emphasis on education, well funded health care and strong social service provision.
