MORE AND MORE PEOPLE IN THE NORTH EAST ARE SAYING LIB DEM? NEVER AGAIN!

Roberta Blackman Woods MP

Ahead of the Lib Dem Spring Conference in Gateshead, Labour MP for City of Durham and Shadow Communities Minister, Roberta Blackman-Woods said: 

“The Lib Dems have left a trail of broken promises behind them on their way to Gateshead. So far in government they’ve trebled university fees after promising they’d axe them. They’ve cut over 450 police officers in this region when they promised to put more on the beat and their economic policies have left the North East at the top of the unemployment league. 

“They are propping up a Conservative-led government who are implementing huge cuts to local councils in the North whilst increasing funding to more affluent areas of the country.

“To cap this all off they are now coming to North East having betrayed the NHS. Lib Dems are giving the Tories the votes they need to force through these reckless changes that are opposed by doctors, nurses and over 160,000 members of the public who have signed the petition to drop the Bill.

“It’s no wonder that an increasing number of people in this region are saying they will never trust the Lib Dems again.”
