Nick Clegg's speech to Conference
In his keynote conference speech, Nick Clegg presented the Liberal Democrats as the party to deliver social justice and fairness for Britain. Nick’s speech focused on the current economic difficulties, which he described as 'a firestorm', "raging through our financial system, ignited by reckless bankers and fuelled by complacent politicians.” He set out the party’s Fairer Future economic recovery plan (see economy section of this round-up for more).
· Said he wanted to make Britain the first truly green economy in the world
· Spoke of the importance of achieving energy independence within the EU
· Set out his aim of making government ‘people shaped’, with benefits shaped around the needs of people and families, not bureaucrats
· Repeated his commitment to the ‘pupil premium’ to target extra cash at deprived children
· Made clear he is ambitious for the party, repeating his target of doubling the party’s number of MPs

Good news for Waltham Forest !
The Audit Commission has just announced that Waltham Forest Council has been awarded four stars in the Comprehensive Performance Assessment.
Four stars is the highest rating possible and shows the hard work the Council has done to go from a zero star rated council in 2002 to four stars in 2008.
Waltham Forest is the only council in the country to have gone from zero stars to four stars in six years.
This achievement clearly shows that increasing Lib Dem influence on the Council has been a force for improvement.

New document for discussion
‘Make it Happen’ sets out in clear language the party’s position on important issues such as the economy, taxation and the health service.
It highlights how -
We will cut taxes for ordinary families
If your local hospital can't see you on time, we'll pay for treatment elsewhere
We'll switch taxes from people to pollution - so it pays to go green
To improve standards in education, we'll fund extra help for those who need it most
We'll put Britain at the heart of Europe to make us a force for good in the world
We'll stop ID cards so we can keep control of our privacy
We'll change the voting system so everyone's voice counts
We'll bring communities together with local people in charge
We'll give communities a say in how offenders pay for their crimes
The document will be debated at the party's autumn conference in Bournemouth.
