The Liberal Democrats will 'legalise cannabis, oppose Brexit and help first-time buyers'
Wednesday 17th May 2017

The Liberal Democrats have pledged to legalise cannabis, oppose Brexit and help young people buy their first home in their general election manifesto.

Following on from Labour yesterday, leader of the Lib Dems Tim Farron launched his party’s vision for the future of Britain.

Mr Farron said he would inject £6 million a year into the NHS by putting 1p on national insurance, and ban diesel cars.

The party leader also stuck the boot in to current prime minister Theresa May’s “extreme” Conservative Brexit plans, and equally slated Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party for “letting you [the country] down” by not voting against her plans.

Mr Farron said: "You don't have to accept Theresa May and Nigel Farage's extreme version of Brexit that will wreck the future for you, your family, your schools and hospitals.

"In the biggest fight for the future of our country in a generation, Jeremy Corbyn's Labour has let you down by voting with Theresa May on Brexit, not against her.”
