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.

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

    So what are we doing to fight the damaging and dangerous effects it will have on democratic scrutiny, workers' rights, the battle against the climate crisis, and more?

    Today, we tabled an amendment to block the Withdrawal Agreement Bill because:

    A happy and peaceful Chanukah to all Jewish people around the world!

    Chanukah is a special time of the year for so many reasons. It's about solidarity with friends and family. It's about overcoming adversity in impossible circumstances. Most importantly, it's about the power of faith and how it can make wonderful things happen.

    Happy New Year!

    Over Christmas and New Year, a team of HQ staff and almost 60 volunteer testers from across the party as well as the team at Prater Raines have been hard at work testing Lighthouse, the party's new Local Party Management tool.

    The feedback from those users has been really encouraging, they've found the system really intuitive and easy to use.
