  • Campaigner for climate emergency

I care about passing the planet on to future generations and preserving for them the opportunities provided by our membership of the European Union.

There is no planet B. Stopping Brexit means we can put energy back into what matters, the environment, tackling inequality, providing health and social care that works for everyone, and creating job opportunities.

I'm standing because our western liberal democracy is under threat by extremism. MPs are the law makers. Parliament needs to be able to do its job, scrutinise the Government, and represent the needs of all. Working as part of a strong Liberal Democrat team, we will ensure our Parliamentary system is fit for the 21st Century.

If you want a better future, vote for it, vote LibDem

Finger on the pulse: national party updates

    At a meeting of the Federal Board today, the new board made decisions on three key events, the timeline for our upcoming leadership election, the timeline for upcoming elections to party posts and committees and finally the appointment of a Chair of the Election Review and a timetable for that.

    Do you think we care well enough for the more vulnerable in our society?

    Have we figured out how best to care for people who've experienced bereavement, people who get ill in old age, those with mental ill-health or adults with learning disabilities?

    My own personal experience tells me we haven't. Whether in my own life or for many constituents in my advice surgeries over 20 years, all too often the care and support systems either don't work well enough or aren't even there at all.

    I want to thank you for all your hard work over the last six weeks. Everyone did everything they could in this campaign but the result has been deeply disappointing.

    Despite Liberal Democrats gaining 1.2m votes and our share of the vote increasing in every region of the UK, we are now one seat down compared to 2017. Under a proportional system, we would now have 84 MPs.

    The latest EU Settlement Scheme Statistics, published by the Home Office, show more than 140,000 EU citizens applied to live and work in the UK after Brexit in November.

    These figures show 361,900 people are still waiting for a decision, with 2,592,800 applications received but only 2,230,900 concluded.

    This news is yet more evidence that Boris Johnson's government looks set to crash our economy thanks to his disastrous Brexit plans.

    Whether its putting people's livelihoods on the line in our factory sector, or increasing prices with the pound weakening in 2020, it is clear that Boris Johnson's promise to unleash Britain's potential is nothing more than empty rhetoric.

    We haven't even left yet.
