Fixing Britain's Railways

Rail fares are going through the roof - going by train just isn't affordable any more, it's a luxury. With such poor service, this needs to stop. The Lib Dems will freeze season ticket prices for five years to give us time to fix our broken railways and make sure we're getting what we pay for.

Amongst other improvements we'll:

  • Convert the rail network to ultra-low-emission technology
  • Allow public sector and not-for-profit companies to run trains
  • Sack train operators if they fail to provide a high-quality public service

Demand better action for the environment

The climate emergency is an existential threat. Air pollution is damaging too many lives.

The Conservatives haven’t taken this problem seriously. We have no time to lose: this is an urgent crisis that demands real action now. The Liberal Democrats demand action now.

The people must have the final say

The Liberal Democrats’ admirably strong anti Brexit line is already well understood.  But claiming we would unilaterally stop Brexit without reference to the people through a referendum if we win the next General Election is unnecessary, wrong and counterproductive.
