Interesting list showing the difference we made in govt. Why we can't let the Tories govern alone!
 
Was 18, now expanded to 19 extreme Tory policies the Lib Dems have blocked
There are two reasons for the Lib Dems being in government - one is to get Liberal Democrats policies put into action, the other is to stop Tory policies.

The Liberal Democrat manifesto will include plans for five new laws to protect the environment.

Interesting plans to develop tidal power stations in the UK. These plans are fully supported by Ed Davey (LibDem Secretary of State for Environment)and myself.

Glad to see the Lib Dems committing more help to first time buyers and young families buying their first homes.

Glad to see Parliament pass law for plain packaging for cigarettes.
 
United Kingdom: Brits back plain packaging on tobacco.
The British parliament is expected to vote in support of plain packaging and other restrictions on tobacco products, similar to those in the Tobacco Products Directive that was heavily lobbied against in Brussels. A large majority of Britons support the move. Three quarters of respondents in a poll for YouGov said they support tobacco marketing that covers up tobacco products in UK shops, 13% opposed. Over seven in ten (72%) backed plain packagin...
