    Sixty six children have died since the outbreak of violence last week.

    We cannot afford yet another return to a status quo which will only lead to more innocent deaths in the future.

    Every death was completely preventable.

    And while a ceasefire is welcome, we cannot return to a status quo.

    We need to take meaningful action now to prevent innocent deaths in the future.

    The theme of this year's International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) is resisting, supporting and healing together.

    Pre-pandemic there were reports that hate crimes were on the rise.

    As we start to emerge from the coronavirus pandemic, it perfectly encapsulates many of the needs of LGBT+ people in 2021.

    Here's a rundown of the key Bills being proposed by the Government in the Queen's Speech

    Sovereign Borders Bill

    The bill changes asylum rules, including making claims inadmissible if the person has arrived in the UK "illegally". The government has closed the UK's resettlement schemes, meaning there are no safe and legal routes into the UK. Asylum seekers are being forced to enter the country illegally, then being punished for it, this is inhumane and unacceptable. We should welcome refugees fleeing war and/or persecution with compassion, not treat them like criminals and understand they don't have time to check their plans with the Home Secretary.

    A great team effort

    We've had a huge set of elections in difficult circumstances. It was a massive combined effort of volunteers and staff, candidates and agents, helpers and donors, to get several hundred Liberal Democrats elected. Thank you to everyone who played their part in an impressive team effort.

    Eid marks the end of Ramadan - a holy month of prayer and personal reflection.

    I'm sure it feels strange to celebrate again with Covid restrictions in place.

    But despite the many challenges of the past year, I'm amazed at how we've pulled together as a country - making it clear that we are a nation of carers.

    A solution to a problem that doesn't exist.
    The Conservative Government's proposal in this week's Queens' Speech for voters to be required to present photo IDs is nothing less than an attack on democracy.
    Instead of bringing forward real plans to improve social care or properly fund our vital public services, the Tories are spending time tackling a problem that doesn't exist - only one case of vote fraud was detected in the whole of the UK in 2019.

    LibDems on North Somerset Council are calling for an action plan and funding to tackle issues at Weston General Hospital highlighted in the latest report from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
    The report of an inspection of the medical care services department at the hospital on 11 March, which was published on 12 May, praised the focus given by staff on the needs of the patients, but said the hospital's leadership team needs to make a number of sustainable improvements.
