Liberal Democrats

From dKosopedia

A political party operating in Great Britain and working with the Alliance Party in Northern Ireland

The Liberal Democrats were formed in 1988. They are a merger of the Liberal Party and the Social Democratic Party. The Liberal Democrats are led by Sir Menzies Campbell. The Liberal Democrats stand for many issues and are also opposed to many issues. They oppose putting targets first. Instead they recommend putting the people and their healthcare first. They want to help make it easier for people to get their medications. They propose free medical care for the elderly. They believe that you should not have to sell your personal belongings for your health.

Liberal Democrats are also opposed to the war in Iraq. They believe that the approach that Blair and Bush took was the wrong one. The Liberal Democrats are a lot like the Democratic Party in the United States. They also want to reform the House of Commons and enforce fair voting.

The Liberal Democrats currently hold 62 seats in the House of Commons in the most recent general election was held on May 5, 2005, a gain of 10 seats from the 2001 general election. Out of 27,132,327 votes counted, the Liberal Democrats received 22.05 percentage of the votes. That makes them the third largest legislative party in Britain. The 2005 general election gave the first and second largest parties, the Labour Party and Conservative Party, respectively 356 seats and 197 seats in the House of Commons.

The Liberal Democrats stand for the people. They stand for the equality of the people of the United Kingdom.
