Labour's Election Manifesto 2015: Britain can be better
Here you'll find a summary of Labour's policy pledges as laid out in their election manifesto. This week sees the political parties releasing their party manifestos. In what is shaping up to be one of the most tightly contested elections, voters will no doubt be looking to how the parties will differ in their vision and plan for Britain's future. At this stage there doesn't seem to be a lot of difference between the major parties. The Conservatives, Labour and Liberal Democrats have all promised to get rid of the current deficit. While the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats have set a target o 2017/18, Labour isn't committing to a date instead offering the rather ambiguous commitment of "as soon as possible".
Greens' Election Manifesto 2015: For the common good
Here you'll find a summary of the Greens' policy pledges as laid out in their election manifesto. The Green Party manifesto, unveiled by leader Natalie Bennett and the party’s only MP Caroline Lucas, calls for a “peaceful political revolution” to end austerity and tackle climate change. They makes some grand promises including increasing the minimum wage to £10 an hour, insulating nine million homes, increasing pensions, a million new public sector jobs and “taking back” the NHS and railways from the private sector.
Liberal Democrats' Election Manifesto 2015: Stronger Economy. Fairer Society. Opportunity for Everyone.
Here you'll find a summary of the Liberal Democrats' policy pledges as laid out in their election manifesto. The Liberal Democrats launched their election manifesto on the basis that no party would be able to govern alone after the election. In an effort to entice voters, leader Nick Clegg declared that the Liberal Democrats would be act as a “barrier” to prevent UKIP or the SNP holding the balance of power and, “add heart to a Conservative government and…a brain to a Labour one”. Clegg went on to say their manifesto was a sensible “insurance policy” against extreme cuts or reckless borrowing. As would be expected with such a middle of the road approach, the manifesto has little in the way of setting a clear, distinct path. Rather Clegg has hedged his bets on voters seeing them as a safe, centrist option. This is an expected approach given the Liberal Democrats have had five years to prove they are a viable coalition partner.
