  • Cost of Living Crisis ()
    Article: Feb 7, 2022

    The UK is facing a cost of living crisis. A combination of Brexit, the pandemic, and Inflation is pushing prices up for everyone.

    Energy prices are set to rise dramatically and could push one in four UK households into 'fuel stress' - spending at least 10 per cent of their family budgets on energy bills.

    Inflation is at its highest rate for 30 years, food prices have seen their biggest rise since the crash in 2008 and the price of a tank of petrol increased by £12 in 2021.

    Yet while millions have been struggling, the Conservative Government has cut universal credit and hiked national insurance.

    The Conservatives are making it harder for people at this difficult time.

    Here's what we would do instead:

    Tax super-rich multi-national companies to make them pay their fair share.
    Invest in Green Homes and Green Energy to cut fuel bills and tackle fuel poverty.
    Make trade easier with Europe to tackle food shortages and cut prices.

    Mole Valley District Council has updated its licensing policies to include additional safeguards in bars and clubs for anyone targeted in spiking and needle attacks. Bookham Councillor Elizabeth Daly, who took over as Chair of the Council's Licensing Committee last year, said:

    "As a former nursery worker, I am very aware of the dangers in licensed premises. We are of course dependent on action by the police and government restrictions, but protecting young people will remain one of our top priorities."

    We all fear that in the end, it will be our children who have paid the price for this pandemic.

    Countless hours of invaluable face-to-face learning time has been lost to Covid. And Boris Johnson's failure to defend our children's education meant that his Government spent the same amount in one month on Eat Out To Help Out as it did for our children's school catch-up in a whole year.

    The Liberal Democrats are the party of empowering people and supporting parents and children is our top priority in the new fair deal we offer.

    To deliver this we are calling for a £15billion investment in education to help a generation of young people whose education has been affected by the pandemic. A third of the money would go direct to parents to spend on whatever help their children need most: tutoring in reading, writing or maths; music lessons; swimming classes or other physical education.

    There is no denying it: climate change is real - and if urgent action is not taken now it could be too late.

    This summer saw more wildfires and flash floods across the world. Temperatures are rising year on year.

    "It is clear that we must take this issue seriously," says Liberal Democrat Leader Ed Davey MP. "Yet the Conservative Government is delaying climate action and the Prime Minister still cannot make up his mind whether he cares about the climate or not."
