Nick will make an excellent Party Leader, he has an excellent track record on standing up on issues that matter. We look forward to working with him.
Nick Clegg has set out his priorities in a message to Monmouthshire residents:
“I am greatly honoured to have been chosen by my fellow party members to be the new Leader of the Liberal Democrats. Throughout Monmouthshire, Liberal Democrats are already working hard to reach out to local people and listen to their concerns. In my leadership I will be taking that spirit nationwide, moving beyond Party Politics and making liberalism connect with the millions of people who share our values.
Labour and the Conservatives have failed Britain’s families. I will lead my party to change politics, and change Britain, for the better. Only the Liberal Democrats are committed to giving the people of Monmouthshire a greater say in the decisions that affect our lives, by shifting power away from Westminster and back to local communities.
I will fight for a fair deal for Britain’s families, campaign tirelessly to cut crime and improve our NHS so it delivers the care people need.”
Nick Clegg is going to be a great leader. Labour and the Conservatives share so many policies, the time has come for a politician who will speak up for people and local communities.
