    Content warning: this blog post will discuss issues relating to eating disorders

    It's mental health awareness week, and this year's theme is body image. Many people who suffer from ill mental health, such as having an eating disorder, still don't get the support they need. This needs to change.

    We need early intervention, better training for doctors, and standardised waiting times for adults, like we have for children.

    There was a new round of EU election opinion polling in this weekend - and the Lib Dems are performing amazingly!

    The data released has us between 12 and 15% - the highest we've been in years, with big increases in all 3. If we carry on this momentum, we could well record our best European election showing - ever! We're already well above the Conservatives - and getting close to challenging Labour for second place.

    We are a proud European party, and we want to keep it that way!

    As a part of us wanting to remain in the EU, we are excited to announce our new joint project with the German liberal party Free Democratic Party.

    It will allow you make direct contact with a new German friend to exchange ideas to help bridge the divide that has been caused by nationalism and misconceptions.

    WARNING: there are naughty words ahead. Stray political editors from the Daily Express may find their sensibilities offended!

    We launched our EU manifesto yesterday: Bollocks to Brexit. It's as bold as the name suggests - committing us to:

    ✔︎ A People's Vote
    ✔︎ Defending our fishing rights from being traded away
    ✔︎ A carbon-neutral EU by 2050
