Lib Dems’ ploy to capture Blue Wall seats is revealed as Ed Davey strikes the Conservative Party.

The Lib Dems are eyeing up Blue Wall seats in the Conservatives’ heartlands in southern England.

Sir Ed Davey will use an address to members in London on Sunday to renew his party’s assault on the Tories’ traditional strongholds where he believes floating voters could jump ship at the next general election.

It comes despite the departure of Boris Johnson, who some strategists saw as good for the Liberal Democrats, with Rishi Sunak now at the helm.

Sir Ed’s party seized Chesham and Amersham in a by-election in June last year, overturning a 16,223 Tory majority.

But Labour still has a huge lead of 20 points over the Tories on 49 percent.
Sir Ed will also use his address to the Lib Dem faithful on Sunday to pledge that patients would be legally entitled to see their GP within seven days – or 24 hours if urgent – under plans he is drawing up.

It comes as the Lib Dems are warning of a “stark postcode lottery” in the GP system, with wait times of more than two weeks for one in four appointments in some parts of the country.

“Liberal Democrats would guarantee people a right to a GP appointment within one week, or within 24 hours if they are in urgent need.”
