Sir Ed Davey and Daisy Cooper MP

Vision for the Future

As we face crises both at home and abroad, it’s clear that our political arena needs significant improvement. Ed and Daisy will set out their vision for the future of our country, and the important role the Lib Dems hope to play in delivering it.

Sir Ed Davey
Leader of the Liberal Democrats; MP for St Albans

Ed has been Leader of the Liberal Democrats since 2020. In the last year, he has led the party to three historic by-election victories – winning seats across the Conservatives’ former heartlands. He recently published The Battle for Liberal Britain, a collection of essays that sets out the Liberal Democrats can deliver a fair deal for people across the country. An economist by training, Ed is now using his expertise to push the government to take more action on the cost of living emergency – including calling for an emergency 20% cut to VAT. Ed was first elected to the seat he still holds, MP for Kingston & Surbiton, in 1997 and was the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change during the coalition government. He lives in Surbiton with his wife Emily and their two children.

Daisy Cooper

Daisy is Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats.  She won her seat in St Albans in the 2019 general election from the incumbent Conservative MP who had held the seat since 2005. By increasing her share of the vote by a whopping 17%, she is the first liberal MP to be elected to represent St Albans since a Liberal was returned in 1904. The Guardian named Cooper as one of the ten new MPs from all political parties to “watch out for” in 2019.  Cooper was appointed Deputy Leader in 2020 and is the Party’s spokesperson for health and social care.  Daisy is a seasoned grassroots campaigner who worked with Hacked Off and More United, she holds two law degrees.
