    "Our penny on income tax ringfenced for the NHS is going down well on the doorstep" says Mike Hibbs, our Lib Dem candidate in the Saffron Walden Constituency. "Voters understand the urgency and appreciate the clarity of how our promise will be funded." The Liberal Democrats are the only party with a long-term plan for health and social care. To tackle the immediate problem we will raise an additional £7 billion a year, ringfenced to be spent only on the NHS and Social Care services. This revenue will be generated from a 1p rise in the basic, higher and additional rates of income tax. Full details of the proposals in our Manifesto.

  • Mike talking about housing
    Article: Nov 30, 2019

    Increasing the number of social and affordable homes we build was one of the topics discussed at a lively General Election Hustings in Stansted on Friday.

    "We now have a crazy situation where to get one social/affordable housing unit, you have to accept four unaffordable, luxury homes", said Mike. "We have to find another way to fund this. Lib Dems will build thousands of new homes for social rent to give our young people hope of a home of their own. The homes will be built to zero carbon standards reducing energy consumption and making the running costs affordable for young families."

    Following the launch of the Liberal Democrats' Manifesto for the 2019 General Election, local Lib Dem candidate Mike Hibbs and the campaign team spent Saturday morning discussing election issues with shoppers of all political opinions in King Street.

    "People in Saffron Walden are telling us how worried they are about the future of this country. The Conservatives' plans for a hard or even no-deal Brexit are causing immense stress and anxiety - never mind the damaging economic consequences" said Mike. "Our 2019 General Election Manifesto outlines a clear plan to build a brighter future for people and the planet. The first step will be to stop Brexit and use a £50 billion Remain Bonus to invest in public services and tackling inequality."
