Ian Lavery responds to the election of Jo Swinson as Liberal Democrat leader
Ian Lavery MP, Labour Chair, responding to the election of Jo Swinson as new Liberal Democrat leader, said:
“Jo Swinson sat at the top table of the coalition government and
voted for vicious attacks on the most vulnerable and tax cuts for the
super-rich and big businesses.
“Austerity couldn’t have happened without Liberal Democrats – leading
to shocking levels of child poverty, the tripling of tuition fees, a
homelessness crisis and rising food bank use.
“Labour is the only party that can stop the Tories, and transform Britain so that it works for the many not the few”
