Your world – LibDem manifesto commitments commenced or delivered to date

Lib Dem Manifesto p.23 “If you choose micro-generation, you will be able to sell the energy back to the National Grid at a profit, with a more attractive feed-in tariff than under current government plans.”

Feed-in tariffs were protected under the spending review. Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Chris Huhne has announced that the Renewable Heat Incentive, which pays for every kilowatt hour of
heat produced, will go ahead in 2011.

Lib Dem Manifesto p.58 “Begin a ten-year programme of home insulation, offering a home energy improvement package of up to £10,000 per home, paid for by the savings from lower energy bills, and make sure every new home is fully energy-efficient by improving building regulations.”

At the beginning of November, Chris Huhne announced the Green Deal. Through the Green Deal, people will be able to pay back the up front costs of home insulation work through the lower bills that will result.

We’ve also recognised that those in fuel poverty need extra help. This is why, under the new Energy Company Obligation, we’ll be requiring energy companies to help poorer customers, by providing basic
heating and insulation to the most vulnerable households. Until the Green Deal and ECO kick in, we’ve put in place the Warm Home Discount which will help around £2 million households per year take up to an anticipated £130 off their bills.

Lib Dem Manifesto p.58 “We will set out a clear renewable route map to 2050, covering grid access and investment in electricity networks.”

We are mapping out the path to renewable energy in 2050, and have enabled £110 billion of investment in low carbon electricity infrastructure over the next decade.

Lib Dem Manifesto p.59 “Block any new coal-fired power stations – the most polluting form of power generation – unless they are accompanied by the highest level of carbon capture and storage facilities.”

Chris Huhne has stated that the coalition would not allow any new coal power station to be built without being equipped with CCS technology.

Lib Dem Manifesto p.62 “We will increase the UK’s aid budget to reach the UN target of 0.7% of GNI by 2013”

The overseas aid budget has been protected from cuts and will rise to £11.5bn over the next four years. The effect will be that the UK will reach the United Nations goal of giving 0.7% of national income in aid
by 2013.

Lib Dem Manifesto p.63 “We will prioritise health and education programmes in the developing world which aim to promote gender equality and reduce maternal and infant mortality.”

In September 2010, Nick Clegg announced that the government will refocus its aid efforts to put the lives of women in developing countries at its heart

Lib Dem Manifesto p.68 “We will hold a full judicial inquiry into allegations of British complicity in torture and state kidnapping as part of a process to restore Britain’s reputation for decency and fairness.”

The Coalition government has announced a judicial inquiry into Britain’s role in torture and rendition since the al-Qaida attacks of September 2001. A three-person inquiry panel will be headed by Sir Peter Gibson, a former appeal court judge who is currently commissioner for the intelligence services

    “7 Lib Dem manifesto commitments delivered in 7 months. Six of which were already policies of the last Labour Gov.“

  2. Our world – LibDem HIDDEN manifesto commitments commenced or delivered to date.

    Lib Dem HIDDEN manifesto p. 1 “We will PRIVATISE education and triple university education fees, we choose to ignore that the reason we hold power pledges not to .”

    We will put the liberal arts out of reach of poorer working and lower-middle class families by scrapping funding to support liberal arts courses obliterating the diverse presence of working class perspectives in art, history, history of art, English, philosophy, sociology etc. Many lecturers working in these areas lose their jobs and these will revert to education grounds of the rich. These are ideological moves to stop central or left-wing consciousness poisoning our youth and to stop them asking questions.”

    The tripling of fees and scrapping of EMA will leave students with debts of £50,000 making it unlikely that poorer students will take the risk of studying non-vocational subjects. Universities will become businesses instead of places for learning. Profits will go to the same shareholders that were responsible for the banking crash”

    Lib Dem HIDDEN Manifesto p.2 “We will PRIVATISE the NHS by introducing free market competition into the commissioning of services. Services & goods provided directly by the NHS will be provided by private companies. Profits once re-invested into equipment and fair working terms and conditions will be diverted into shareholders pockets. This market competition will result in lowered pension values, lower pay and worse working conditions. Within 10 years we expect that the majority of services will be provided by private companies and the UK NHS will be closer to the American free market model.”

    Lib Dem HIDDEN manifesto p.3. “we will PRIVATISE the forensics service and transfer profits to shareholders. The market competition will force down the cost of pensions, pay and terms and conditions making them less costly to the state. Money will not be invested in new machines of techniques. The shareholders and business leaders will be more likely to vote for our new libdem and conservative party.”

    Lib Dem HIDDEN manifesto p.4. “we will PRIVATISE British forests handing them to private companies for shareholder profit. Private companies can begin to charge visitors for the privilege of visiting their own forests.

    Lib Dem HIDDEN manifesto p.5. “Under the cover of the BIG society we will stop directly providing or funding many services for the poor, disabled or ill passing responsibility to private individuals. We hope that individuals and the church will pick up the tab relieving us of both responsibility and cost.

    Lib Dem HIDDEN manifesto p.5. “We will stop being LIBERAL DEMOCRATS and once in power form a new party with the conservatives even though the majority of those who voted us into power only voted for us because Nick Clegg promised never to go into coalition with the Conservatives.

    Lib Dem HIDDEN manifesto p.6. “We will make sure that middle-class and working class pensions, pay and working conditions are reduced to pay for the deficit caused by shareholders and the banking crisis. This will be achieved by introducing free market competition into the public sector.”

    Lib Dem HIDDEN manifesto p.7. “We promise to make more promises to gain power and ignore anything that you say afterwards because we are rich and immune to anything we expect you to suffer.

  5. No good having policies if you don’t put them into practice though Quietzapple – still, should stop people claiming that the Coalition are only enacting Tory policies, if they’re delivering Lib Dem manifesto commitments which Labour claim to agree with!

  6. No good claiming they are uniquely your achievements if the other party had them as policy Dave. But then you are one of Lynne’s little appointed supporters and tweeters.
