Looking for ways to boost growth
I'M very pleased that the Green Party mayor candidate agrees with me that doing things differently means "thinking about our whole economy differently". That is why Vince Cable coined the phrase 'casino banks', recognising their irresponsibility years ago and is pursuing the super-wealthy through new tax controls.
Liberal Democrats are leading the way on growth through development of the green economy, with a new Green Energy bill imminent. It is the Liberal Democrats in government who have ensured that "quality" not "profit" is the measuring stick for the new GP/clinician commissioning of health services.
Our ideas are being debated and implemented. Our ministers, with whom we have direct contact, are responding to the call to make progress, cross-party, on Dilnot's recommendations to meet the huge funding gap for future social care, one that makes examples of profiting from the NHS, although always to be challenged, a mere distraction.
Locally, we have replaced the other parties' proposal for an incinerator with the setting-up of a company in Avonmouth, which is not only recycling the waste from our black bins but, from January, will be turning this into electricity, enough to heat 25,000 homes.

We actively support responsible and community banks, like Triodos and the Bristol Credit Union – and the Bristol pound. We also promote social enterprise and working with charities on new extra care housing schemes. It was a Liberal Democrat budget proposal this year that used capital borrowing to invest in Bristol on social housing, parks and schools. The Liberal Democrats are the one party prepared to tackle the realities of the current economic depression while looking for new ways of stimulating growth and reducing inequalities.
