What have the Lib Dems achieved in government - part 1

My friend Mark Pack has produced a great info-graphic detailing the success of the Liberal Democrats in getting 75% of their manifesto into the coalition agreement.

As Party President Tim Farron says - we're proud of the 75% and we're sorry not to gave got the remaining quarter in there. But people who voted Lib Dem at the last election can see that the principles that they voted for are being enacted.

I agree with Tim. I'm sorry that some of the policies being put forward by the government are not what we would have wanted. But I am proud to be a Lib Dem because of the positive things we have done. So over the next few days I'll be posting stories about these achievements.

This, for me, is the biggest and best single achievement of the Lib Dems in power. Despite the huge financial mess left to use by the previous government, Liberal Democrats have prioritised easing the tax burden on poorer people.
