I would like to thank all the residents of the Wokingham Parliamentary constituency who voted for me at the recent General election.
The Liberal Democrats delivered 660,000 FOCUS leaflets between the 1st January 2014 and polling day 7th May 2015. NO other party has come close to matching this. In fact we delivered more leaflets than all the other parties put together.
We tried to put our case to the electorate and engage them through our Focus leaflets. During this time our membership in Wokingham has risen by over 40%. Since polling day we have had over 25 new members, many of them under 25 years old.
Liberal Democrats are proud of what they achieved in government.
We gave 26 million people a tax cut they could never have dreamed of having under a Labour or Conservative majority government.
We improved the basic state pension.
We protected the schools budgets, introducing the Pupil premium to help disadvantaged children.
We introduced free school meals for 5-7 year olds.
We created over 2 million apprenticeships.
These were ALL LIBERAL DEMOCRAT POLICIES reluctantly supported by the Conservatives. It will be interesting to see how they govern now they are by themselves.
My grateful thanks again to everyone who voted for me.
