Why is Sunak punishing the weakest in society at a time when they need our help the most?

A Better Liberal Democrat Alternative.

Spring statement 2022 ()

Cutting VAT
Liberal Democrats want to cut the standard rate of VAT from 20% to 17.5% - saving the average family £600 every year.
Windfall Tax
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.
Universal Credit
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.
