    1. He approves of a higher pay rate for men

    His statements on the gender pay gap are shocking. He stated, "men work longer hours, die earlier but retire later than women." He expanded, saying "from the cradle to the grave, men get the raw deal".

    Raab's comments are completely out of touch with reality, plain and simple.

    It is a day when we must remember that every person has the power to change the world.

    It has been 100 years since Mandela's birth. His dedication to the service of humanity and his contribution to the struggle for democracy continue to inspire millions of people.

    Global inequality remains a serious problem facing in the world and protecting human rights is an ongoing struggle of immense importance.

    Today the Electoral Commission ruled on what we all knew - Leave cheated.

    Vote Leave have been fined £60,000 for incomplete and inaccurate expenses and for working jointly with pro-Brexit group BeLeave - and using this to get around their spending ceiling of £7 million.

    And, lest we forget, the referendum result was just 51.9% for Leave and 48.1% for Remain.

    Two weeks ago, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. His name is Gabriel and we adore him.

    My situation isn't typical - I'm an MP. I'm not only an MP, I'm the Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats.

    And our party's goal right now - above all else - is to stop Brexit. We want to give the people the final say on the Brexit deal, including the option to remain in the EU.

    So you have your team, you know who to talk to, but what are you going to tell people, and how are you going to do it.

    Elections are won or lost on Polling Day. One of our target seats in 2017 should have won their seat, but we didn't run a proper GOTV campaign for him and he lost by 2 votes. That wasn't going to happen again.

    GOTV (or get out the vote) is the process of getting those people you have identified as potential Lib Dem voters to put their cross in your box.

  • Liberal Democrats at 2018 Anti-Brexit March
    Article: Jul 17, 2018

    I'm excited to announce our summer campaign pack is coming off the printer and I wanted to share this news with you now so you can begin planning how you are going to use yours.

    Our efforts to stop Brexit are beginning to make waves but, as Parliament readies itself for the summer break, we must redouble our efforts on the ground and make this the biggest summer of action - but in order to do this, we need your help.

The Liberal Democrats are the only party fighting to keep Britain open, tolerant and united.

Open means open-hearted, open-minded, forward-looking, modern, green, internationalist and pro-European. We believe Britain is at its best when it is creative, innovative and outward-looking, comfortable in the fast-changing modern world and open to the opportunities and challenges of globalisation and the digital revolution.

Tolerant means diverse, compassionate and generous. We will always fight injustice and stand up for the underdog, the outsider, the individual, the minority and the vulnerable against the powerful.

United means we will always put the interests of the whole United Kingdom first. We reject the divisions in society, whether between young and old, urban and rural, leave and remain, or between regions and nations. We believe we are stronger - as communities, as a country and as a world - when we work together in our common interest.

If this sounds like you too, join us.
