A Better Liberal Democrat Alternative.
Liberal Democrats want to cut the standard rate of VAT from 20% to 17.5% - saving the average family £600 every year.
We'd force big oil and gas companies to pay their fair share, and use that money to:
✓ Double the Warm Home Discount and extend it to everyone on Pension Credit and Universal Credit
✓ Double the Winter Fuel Allowance
✓ Roll out an emergency home insulation programme
✓ Support small businesses in energy-intensive industries.
Scrapping unfair tax hikes
Under our plans, we'd ditch the hike on National Insurance and the stealth Income Tax rise implemented by the Tories freezing thresholds.
Britain deserves a fairer deal. And the Liberal Democrats are fighting for that in Parliament, in the media and on the doorstep. And we called on the Chancellor to raise benefits in line with the true level of inflation - currently at 6.2% - rather than a paltry 3.1%.
Rishi Sunak can put out as many expensively-produced spin videos as he wants. But we know he's turned his back on the British people.
