THE country's political heavyweights have been pitching for your votes. With just a couple of days to go before the polls open, The Bolton News has asked every party leader why people in the town sould vote for them.

Here leader Jo Swinson lays out why she thinks you should vote for the Lib Dems:

"THE Liberal Democrats will significantly increase investment in places like Bolton.

"Our £50 billion regional rebalancing fund will help fund improvements to rail and bus services.

"We will scrap and replace the broken business rates system cutting tax for most businesses across the UK.

"This will mean an average tax cut of 18 per cent for businesses in Bolton, breathing new life into neglected high streets such as Farnworth and Little Lever.

"We believe that people in Bolton should be able to make decisions themselves.

"The Liberal Democrats will ban fracking – ending the imposition of new fossil fuels on communities.

"Instead, we will give more powers to local authorities to tackle climate change, improve local transport and greater planning powers to suit the needs of their community."
