A message of hope - the future can be better

Nick Clegg

The Liberal Democrats have just finished a really successful spring Conference in Harrogate. It was closed by Nick Clegg talking about how Britain can choose a better future. Nick offered hope for the future. Times are tough and no-one has a magic wand to fix our problems overnight but in his message to the British people Nick said:

"We are the only party that will put money into people's pockets with fair tax cuts. The only party to offer universal childcare and smaller classes in our primary schools. The only party that will use Gordon Brown's wasted billions to create thousands of jobs today by investing in homes, hospitals, schools and public transport to build the green economy of tomorrow. The only party that will rebuild the jobs, homes and hopes this recession has destroyed. So don't believe the doubters, the nay-sayers, the professional cynics. This time it can be different."
