    It found that our policies would mean 600,000 fewer children in poverty by 2023-24.

    This makes ours the most progressive policies of the three main parties.

    The UK produces 2.26 million tonnes of plastic packaging every year.

    Less than half of this is being recycled.

    The Conservatives claimed they will cut plastic pollution. They announced a deposit return scheme in 2018, but it is currently due to be implemented by 2023.

    "Only someone as deceitful as Boris Johnson could dress up exploiting nurses as a gift to the NHS."

    Not only is Boris Johnson's pledge for 50,000 nurses not true.

    The Conservatives are trying to profit from taxing hardworking nurses.

    The Conservative's manifesto commitment includes 12,000 nurses from abroad. The visa fee will be £464 for EU and international nurses. The cost to the Home Office of processing one of those visa applications, however?

    "We will put the UK at the heart of global efforts to protect our marine environment."

    Our marine environment is in crisis. Programmes like the BBC's Blue Planet 2 have revealed the scale of the threat.

    The world's beloved marine species like whales and turtles face numerous threats. Plastic pollution, over-fishing, high volumes of shipping traffic, and rising temperatures are but a few.

    "The UK under Johnson will become President Trump's poodle."

    Johnson is desperate to secure a US trade deal to make up for the damage done to our global standing if Brexit happens.

    Faced with these facts it seems almost impossible to imagine the mountain we need to climb to end violence against women. We need to take bold action now to tackle this crisis. This International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, I'm proud to set out the Liberal Democrat plan to protect women from violence.
