    When my son Gabriel was born, I didn't imagine that he'd have quite such an active political career before his first birthday.

    But now he's experienced one anti-Trump march, two People's Vote marches, one debate in the House of Commons chamber and one very infamous breach of the pairing arrangements in Parliament. He's probably the most politically active baby in the country.

    I'd like to wish all of our Sikh members, supporters and candidates a Happy Vaisakhi.

    I know that today is a very special day for you as you celebrate not only the year that Sikhism was born as a collective faith, the anniversary of the founding of the Khalsa (the collective name given to Sikhs who've been baptised), but also the start of the Sikh New Year.

    We're now fighting TWO elections. Together, we're going to deliver the best results in both elections that we've had in years!
    On 2nd May we need to gain more councils and councillors across England. On 23rd May, we want to elect a Liberal Democrat MEP in every part of the country.

    Our local election campaign is well underway. But we've got a lot to do to ensure our European Election campaign gets off to a flying start too.

    The time he campaigned for Roy Moore in Alabama. When nine women had come forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct.

    Fortunately, Moore lost the seat to Democrat challenger Doug Jones. Which is good, because much like Farage himself, Moore's kind of the worst.

    Brexit is still paralysing government and parliament. But I think a significant corner has been turned with the decision of the European Council to extend the timetable for Brexit until Halloween on Oct 31st.

    The sense of drama and crisis has abated somewhat, now that Brexit Day is no longer imminent.

    It's our job to win big for fellow Remainers across the country in these European elections.

    Last night Theresa May met with EU leaders and, in a dashing blow to her plans, was forced to agree to extend Article 50 to October 31st, with the ability to review at the end of June.

    She's still doing the hokey-cokey and dancing around the issue but as a result, it's clear European elections are incredibly likely this Spring.

  • Plastie Waste

    The world's oceans are slowly turning into a plastic soup.

    Unless we take action, plastic waste will continue to pollute our oceans with devastating effect.

    We have all heard the reports of seabirds strangled by 6-pack rings and whales washing up with guts full of plastic, but did you know the average seafood consumers eats around 11,000 plastic particles a year?

    These past few months have been nothing short of a national humiliation.

    For nearly 3 years, the government has used a wafer thin referendum majority to sow division in our towns, our cities and even in our families.

    But those who seek to divide us will never win. We demand better than Brexit.

    Labour and the Conservatives are fighting amongst themselves, and they have taken their eye off the ball when it comes to local services.
