The Liberal Democrats believe in a country that's open, tolerant and united. Here in the Weston-super-Mare constituency we are fighting against the disastrous Hard Brexit being forced through by the Conservatives; for a £6 billion investment in our NHS - helping to save Weston's Accident and Emergency Department; and we're opposing Tory Government plans to cut £10 million from our local schools and academies.

    Jo Swinson would make a better Prime Minister than either Johnson or Corbyn.

    Yesterday, the Liberal Democrats filed legal proceedings against ITV.

    They have refused to include Jo Swinson in their Leaders Debate numerous times. This is despite Jo being the leader of the biggest and strongest Remain party in the country.

    As the world grapples with a climate emergency, the Conservatives are turning their backs on communities most at risk by failing to provide adequate flood defences.

    Following the flooding across northern England this week, we've announced that a over the lifetime of the next parliament, a Liberal Democrat government will create a £5bn flood prevention and adaptation fund. The fund will help the UK build resilience against future flooding, and ensure all communities can access the funds they need during periods of crisis.

    Today marks Guru Nanak Gurpurab, which commemorates the birth of Guru Nanak, the founder of the Sikh faith. Sikh communities across the world will be celebrating the life of a great thinker; someone who stood up for equality, justice and fairness.

    The teachings of Guru Nanak are profoundly significant. As we mark 550 years since his birth, let us reflect on his message of love and community service to others. These teachings continue to resonate with millions today and are a source of inspiration to people of all faiths and those of none.

    Working hard should mean secure work and a decent income, but for too many people that's not the case. In an ever changing workplace, people often need to develop new skills, but the cost of courses and qualifications shuts too many people out.

    Neither the Conservatives or Labour have the answers to these challenges. They are stuck pursuing 20th-century policies that simply won't work in our 21st-century economy. They would take our country backwards.

    A lot of people have noticed something in our online ads… something about "skills wallets".

    So what is a "Skills Wallet"?

    It's a major, new, innovative policy and a key part of our Plan for the Future.

    A Liberal Democrat government will provide every adult with £10,000 to spend on education and training throughout your lives. This "Skills Wallet" is meant to give every person the opportunity to retrain and upskill for jobs that we can't even imagine yet.

    Hard-working doctors and nurses from the EU are fundamental to the NHS. We all have loved ones whose lives have been saved through their skill and dedication.

    But today, the full extent of the Tories' contempt for our dedicated doctors and nurses was revealed.

    Even though the NHS is critically understaffed, the Tories have revealed that part of their nightmarish Brexit plan is to charge EU nurses and doctors £464 to come to the UK to save lives.

    For too many people, things are not working as they should.

    Families are working harder than ever, but far too many are struggling to get by.

    The Conservatives and Labour are taking our country backwards. Their plans don't meet the demands of modern life.

    But the Liberal Democrats have a bold plan to build a brighter future. We want to create a fairer economy where it's easier to be a parent, have a career, and provide for your family.

    Today's high cost of childcare means that too many parents are unable to return to work without risking real financial hardship. With the average cost of 25 hours nursery care for a child under two running to more than £6500 per year, many parents are effectively excluded from work due to the burden of childcare costs.

    We are in the middle of a climate emergency and the world needs urgent action.

    Only the Liberal Democrats have a bold and credible plan to tackle the climate emergency.

    It's front and centre of our plan, because we can't build a brighter future unless we save our planet.

    That's why a Liberal Democrat government will:

    Throughout his career, Boris Johnson has developed a reputation for being less than respectful in the way he speaks (or writes) about women.

    Now, as he faces a general election campaigning against a strong leader and feminist, Jo Swinson, we look back at just a few of the times Boris has shown how he really feels about women.
