What did the Liberal Democrats do anyway?

Over the weekend our Twitter team got in to a few conversations with people questioning what the Liberal Democrats did during our time in government. Thankfully, the handy “What The Hell Have The Lib Dems Done” website exists to help answer the odd curious tweeter.

If you’re wondering – here’s a few of our achievements during a relatively stable coalition period:

  • Removed innocent people’s DNA from the police database
  • Vetoed the ‘Snoopers Charter’ which planned to monitor your online activity
  • Increased Capital Gains tax to 28% for higher rate taxpayers
  • Delivered a £825 tax cut to over 26 million people
  • Achieved super fast broadband to 80% of the country
  • Delivered on our key pledge of a £2.5 billion Pupil Premium to bring extra funding to disadvantaged children
  • Built the aqueduct – oh wait, no.
