Tim Farron: Miliband talks about fairness, Liberal Democrats deliver it

"While Ed Miliband talks about delivering fairness in tough times, Liberal Democrats have been doing it.

"Labour hit the poorest workers by scrapping the 10p tax rate; Liberal Democrats have lifted a million of the poorest workers out of tax altogether and given 23m workers a £200 tax cut.

"Labour insulted pensioners with the 75p pensions rise; Liberal Democrats raised it by £4.50 this year and will raise it by £5.30 next year.

"Labour let the banks do as they please; Liberal Democrats hit them with a £2.5bn a year tax.

"But the most unfair thing Labour did was wreck the economy and Ed Miliband is still in denial about it. Liberal Democrats in the Coalition are determined to do the right thing by cleaning up Labour's mess and making Britain a fairer, greener and more liberal country."
