Lib Dem Leader Nick Clegg MP

New Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Nick Clegg MP has promised to give a voice to the people of Hinckley & Bosworth who feel ignored by politicians.

Setting out his priorities after being elected as party leader, Nick Clegg, said:

"I am greatly honoured to have been chosen by my fellow party members to be the new leader of the Liberal Democrats.

"Throughout Hinckley & Bosworth 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 Hinckley & Bosworth a greater say in the decisions that affect their 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."

Commenting Lib Dem Party Chairman Cllr Stuart Bray said:

"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 real people and local communities - like ours in Hinckley & Bosworth."
