20 Tory policies the Lib Dems stopped while in Coalition

Liberal Democrats are often reminded about ‘jumping into bed with the Tories’; but  what did we stop them implementing?

Here are 20 policies we stopped:

  1. Inheritance tax cuts for millionaires
  2. Scrapping help with housing costs for young people
  3. Weakening arrest warrants for people who have fled overseas
  4. Firing workers at will, without any reasons given
  5. Regional pay penalising public sector workers outside London and the South East
  6. Privatising the motorways and key A-Roads
  7. The Snoopers’ Charter
  8. Bringing back the old O-level / CSE divide
  9. Profit-making in state schools
  10. Cutting the time childminders can give to each child
  11. Cutting new nursery buildings
  12. Stopping geography teachers telling children about how we can tackle climate change
  13. Axing human rights from national curriculum
  14. Ditching the Human Rights Act
  15. Watering down the ban on hunting by allowing 40 dogs to flush out a fox
  16. Weakening the protections in the Equalities Act
  17. Renewing Trident in this Parliament
  18. Scrapping Natural England
  19. Cutting investment in green energy
  20. Nation-wide immigration checks on all new tenants and lodgers

Meanwhile Corbyn’s Labour Party are backing more and more Tory policies; which only leaves the Liberal Democrats as the real opposition to this Government.
