Exeter Phoenix 2nd and 5th September 2018

DevonforEurope has arranged for two local showings of the film. Made by travelling the length and breadth of Britain, director David Wilkinson has interviewed remainers from different backgrounds reminding us that, far from it being a landslide victory, there remain many voices still fighting for the UK to stay part of the European Union.

Highly recommended. Book tickets through Exeter Phoenix - click here

Finger on the pulse: national party updates

    By Vince Cable

    On 10th December 1948, history was made. The United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

    In the shadow of the Second World War, the nations of the world came together to declare that everyone - no matter who they are and where they live - has the same fundamental rights.

    With one voice, we pledged to "strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance."

    For two years the Liberal Democrats have led the fight to give the people the final say on Brexit and the opportunity to Exit from Brexit.

    Tuesday's vote is the best chance yet to secure a People's Vote and the Liberal Democrats will be using every opportunity to demand better than Brexit.

    The Conservatives have made a mess of Brexit, aided and abetted by the Labour leadership.

    To try and sell a plan that would rob us of many vital cross-border crime-fighting tools on the basis of national security takes quite the brass neck.

    Consider the European Arrest Warrant. It enables us to bring criminals who've fled our shores back to justice in the UK, as well as to extradite thousands of others to face justice in other European countries.

    At our 2018 Spring Conference the Welsh Liberal Democrats followed in the footsteps of our Scottish friends and passed policy calling on Welsh Government to overhaul its guidance on school uniforms to make then more inclusive for trans and non-binary young people.

    I am proud to be in a party where members' shape our policy - and can directly make a real difference in peoples' lives.
