Finger on the pulse: national party updates

    No parent should have to bury their child.

    It's crushing to see it happening so much the news.

    Knife crime is an epidemic on our streets. The Conservative Party's fixation on cutting police to the bone is causing harm. In 2017-18, over 800 teenagers were admitted to hospital with stab wounds.

    High-quality youth work has been proven time and time again to help vulnerable young people escape the clutches of gangs. But the Conservatives have repeatedly defunded these vital outreach programs. We owe it to our children to fight for this funding to be restored.

    Across Britain, you can't have failed to notice that our high streets and town centres are run down.

    Local businesses are closing, leaving our high streets empty of anything bar charity and betting shops.

    People have to travel further for necessities like groceries, needlessly adding more cars to our busy roads.

    The Sutton Trust estimates 40% of young interns are working for free. Many of them are probably entitled to the National Minimum Wage. But a loophole in the law lets employers pass their roles off as "voluntary" unpaid internships.

    They're common in the modern job market - I actually interviewed for one after I graduated. What would I get in return for 40 hours a week of work? Travel and lunch expenses.

    The Liberal Democrats are changing.

    Politics is utterly broken right now. Labour and the Conservatives are being dragged to the ideological extremes, leaving millions feeling powerless and frustrated with the direction our country is taking.

    That needs to change. Liberal Democrats will be that force of change.

    We can't afford to ignore the health problems caused by roadside air pollution. 42% of primary school children attend schools in areas which breach the legal limit of toxins from traffic exhaust.

    Our children breathe this toxic air every day. It means an increased risk of asthma and other breathing problems. Not to mention health problems that can last a lifetime.
