    Tim Farron, Layla Moran and Vince Cable spoke at our last rally of the EU elections in London this evening. And they were joined by a special guest - Andrew MacKinlay, former Labour MP for Thurrock.

    Read their barnstorming speeches and catch up on the action here:

    Theresa May got up and gave another Brexit speech earlier and confirmed what we already knew. She's going to put the Withdrawal Agreement Bill to Parliament - with some minor changes.

    Amongst those, she offered a vote on a People's Vote - but only if the bill passes its second reading.

    Liberal Democrats are clear. We want to stop Brexit. We won't vote for any deal that doesn't promise to give the people the final say.

    On Friday 17th May, I visited Gibraltar with our lead South West England candidate, Caroline Voaden.

    Gibraltar's part of the South West of England constituency in the European elections. We've always had strong support there, receiving over 67% of the vote there last time around in 2014.

    We're set for a strong result - sending both Caroline Voaden and Anthony Hook, our first and second South West candidates, to the European Parliament

    Corbyn's catastrophic Brexit strategy is plodding on. Rather than acting in the interest of the country, he's working to stitch up a Brexit behind closed doors with the Tories.

    He's ducking his commitment to a People's Vote. When asked today, he wouldn't even rule out abstaining on Theresa May's Brexit deal when it goes through the Commons in June. That's voting with the Tories without having to say he did.

    There's been a clear pattern emerging in recent opinion polls. Labour is sinking lower and lower - and the Lib Dems are on the up:
