Tim Farron's party has been struggling to gain traction as the "party of Remain" in an election campaign where the two main parties have largely avoided addressing the specifics of Brexit.

"Many young people in particular are finding it virtually impossible to get on the housing ladder. So the fact that they have the commitment to do that and to give the pupils those sort of opportunities is something I've always welcomed".

THE Liberal Democrats will seek to pitch themselves as the "party of business" today with a plan to give a £2,600 start-up allowance to help budding entrepreneurs across the United Kingdom get started if they won power.

I asked him a few times whether therefore the Lib Dems had become Ukip in reverse - a single issue party, in favour of keeping the United Kingdom in the European Union - and that he was Farage's inverted image.

The Liberal Democrats spokesperson said the party will aim to achieve its target, in part by boosting the number of apprenticeships in "new sectors of our economy, like creative and digital industries".

It would amount to around £750,000 extra per school, enough to employ an estimated 1,840 teachers across the region.

It would allow first-time buyers to purchase homes for the same cost as renting, where each monthly payment steadily buys you a share in the home.

Video from another surveillance camera showed Holcombe and Watkins leaving the building not long after the holdup, Ziegler said. Three UI football players have been officially charged after police say they were involved in a robbery.

Commenting on the EYPP plans, Neil Leitch, chief executive of the Pre-school Learning Alliance, said, 'We have long argued that the disparity between the early years pupil premium and primary school pupil premium is unfair and unjustifiable.

The Liberal Democrat manifesto has committed to scrapping the freeze on benefits and injecting more than twice as much money into welfare as Labour.

Jeremy Corbyn also outlined in the plan how they want to encourage people to "get out of their cars" which in turn could reduce air pollution in the UK.

If you agree, and haven't registered to vote yet, you can do so here - but you must do it by the end of next Monday, 22 May.

DESPITE the party only finishing with the fifth highest number of votes in the 2015 General Election in Stroud, the Liberal Democrats' new candidate for the constituency is confident of winning a seat in Parliament.

"I think we need to be cautious in terms of those negotiations, because they could severely jeopardise Wales and our economy".

A journalist for five years in Weston-super-Mare and Cheltenham before moving into communications, Mr Wilkinson said that he was not expecting the two-horse race the Stroud constituency has provided in recent elections.
