Dear Mr Keefe

I’m sure that you, like me, have found the last 13 years of Labour government bitterly disappointing. Since he promised to end ‘boom and bust’, Gordon Brown has led us into the worst financial crisis for 60 years.

On 6 May voters in Shefield Hallam have a choice between the Liberal Democrats, who have worked hard for this area, and the Conservatives. No other party can win here.

The Conservatives do not have the answers.

The Conservatives are out of touch with modern Britain and their plans for the economy will only make life more difficult for most people, and risk making the economic crisis worse.

This country has been failed by decades of Labour and Conservative government. Together they have failed to improve the country.

The Liberal Democrats are calling for a fairer Britain, one in which a £2.5 billion investment in schools ensures that children have greater opportunities to succeed. We believe in a fairer tax system in which nobody pays income tax on the first £10,000 they earn.

The Liberal Democrats continue to push for a fairer Britain.

We have called for reform of our political system, removing safe seats in Parliament, giving constituents the right to sack corrupt MPs and getting big money out of politics. We have policies that will bring about a prosperous, stable and green economy.

I consider it a privilege to represent Sheffield Hallam in Parliament, to support local campaigns and to help individual residents with their problems.

I want to continue to work hard for Sheffield Hallam and to make Britain better, but I can only do this with your support.

With best wishes,

Nick Clegg

PS – Remember, your vote is important. This General Election is your chance to deliver real change. With your support we will clean up politics, deliver fairness, and change Britain for good.

    To put another way…To song of “An English Country Garden”.

    …How Many Bastards Make Their Buck, In An English Country Garden,
    I’ll Tell You Now Of Some That I know, And Those I Miss You’ll Surely Pardon,
    Politicians And Industrialists, Bankers, Bent Scientists, Chief Constables, Generals, All Their Gentry And Their Brats,
    We’ll Dance On The Wall When The Bastard Fall, In An English Country Garden
