Labour Remainers, your party has left you!

Labour Remainers, your party has left you behind!

More than 80% of those who voted Remain, now say that this will determine their vote on Thursday 12 December.

It’s time to trust in the sensible middle ground of British politics.

If not now, when?

If not you, who?

The clock is ticking…

The clock is ticking – Flooding in Crewe and Nantwich is getting worse

We must take decisive action to tackle the climate emergency.

We need a radical, credible plan to do this, starting now:

  • Net Zero emissions by 2045 at the latest
  • 80% renewable electricity by 2030
  • Insulating every home by 2030
  • £5bn for community flood prevention

It’s time to trust in the sensible middle ground of British politics.

Every child deserves the best start in life

Every child in Crewe and Nantwich deserves the best start in life, no matter their ability or background
We will all benefit from proper funding for local schools

Lets give our children the resources they need to learn:

  • Emergency cash injection so our schools are properly funded
  • Support for our teachers, so they can focus on teaching
  • Extending Free School Meals to all primary school children, so they’re ready to learn

It’s time to trust in the sensible middle ground of British politics.

Protect our NHS and Social Services

Our NHS and social care are in crisis.

Leighton Hospital is struggling.

We have been failed by the Conservatives.

We must invest in our NHS.

  • 1 p on income tax, ringfenced for our NHS and social care
  • Mental health on a level with physical health
  • Support people to build a brighter future for themselves and their loved ones

It’s time to trust in the sensible middle ground of British politics.

Helping families in Crewe and Nantwich

Childcare is expensive in Crewe and Nantwich.

That’s why we’re offering free childcare from 9 months old for working families.

Think how much difference that would make to our monthly bills.

It’s time to trust in the sensible middle ground of British politics.

A fairer society

For many in Crewe and Nantwich, things aren’t working as they should be.

Poverty is up locally.  Thousands of people in our community have turned to foodbanks for help.  That’s not right.

Like many areas of the UK, Crewe has been left behind.

Let’s invest in a brighter future for Crewe and Nantwich.

  • Appropriate, affordable and social housing, prioritising brownfield sites
  • Help our young people and families to stay here
  • Help our older people to live independently for longer
  • Lift 600,000 children out of poverty across the UK
  • A benefits system that works for those it protects
  • Universal access to basic services

It’s time to trust in the sensible middle ground of British politics.

Matthew Theobald with Lib Dem Diamond

All change at Crewe… and Nantwich!

Matthew Theobald with Lib Dem Diamond
Matthew Theobald – Crewe and Nantwich Liberal Democrat Candidate

Your local Liberal Democrats are back and we are working for you! A hardworking team of local volunteers and donors have rebuilt the party after a quieter spell during 2016 and 2017. Now, we are campaigning to win Crewe and Nantwich so this constituency can have a Brighter Future!

Matthew Theobald has spent the last 22 years living and working in our constituency. He will vote in our best interests and would be very proud to represent you in Parliament.

Matthew is a local high school governor who is passionate about education. With responsibility for resources, he is painfully aware of the importance of school funding; Matthew knows more is needed and how this can be spent wisely. Working closely with the teams for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, he understands how a universal education system must give every child the best start in life.

Matthew runs a local healthcare business; he knows the challenges of starting and running a business. Right now, our country is not small business friendly. Matthew understands this and will campaign for a balanced economy – one that protects employment rights and encourages entrepreneurship and innovation.

Matthew has a strong track record of campaigning against aggressive housing development that blights the local area. He will use that experience to campaign for more suitable, affordable and social housing; to help our young people set up their homes locally, families stay in the area, older people live independently for longer.

As a Green Liberal Democrat, he will continue to protect our local environment from further damage. Matthew is proud to be a signatory of Frack Free United’s pledge and will oppose fracking in this constituency. He is also a keen supporter of the Plastic Free Nantwich initiative.

Matthew is also a supporter of Proportional Representation and has signed the pledge from Make Votes Matter. It is long overdue that we have a system where everyone’s voice is heard, rather than the debate being a political football between the Conservatives and Labour.

Although a parish councillor, Matthew is not a career politician and has chosen to get involved because of the appalling state of our country. He thinks that you, and our constituency as a whole, deserve better. He wants you to join him in demanding better on the key areas that affect us all. He will champion our education system, protect our NHS, defend our local environment and fight to Remain in a reformed EU.

None of this will happen unless Brexit is stopped.

In 2016, whether you voted Leave or Remain, you voted for a better Britain. Three years on, it is clear that Brexit would not benefit our community. Brexit would harm our local businesses, including Bentley, which relies on frictionless supply chains. Our public services need workers from the UK and 27 other EU countries. Crewe and Nantwich benefit greatly from our membership of the EU, in education, employment, healthcare and support for regeneration. Above all, we are part of a European peace project which honours the sacrifices made to protect that peace.

A brighter future needs a positive, progressive plan for Crewe and Nantwich. The Liberal Democrat plans promise a fairer economy that will deliver extra investment in education – giving every child the best start in life, extra funding for the NHS and to transform our mental health services, an ambitious commitment to tackling the climate emergency, and much, much more.

For a brighter future for Crewe and Nantwich Vote for Matthew Theobald, Liberal Democrats.
