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.

    What a year we've had!

    2019 has been a record year for membership. People from all parties and none have joined our campaign to stop Brexit.

    We deserve better than two old parties who take our country for granted.

    We won the Brecon and Radnorshire Parliamentary by-election in the summer, cutting Boris Johnson's majority.

    Our country and our businesses deserve better than a choice between a hard Brexit under Johnson or the hard left under Corbyn.

    Both parties would damage businesses through their plans to end free movement and deprive our fast-growing businesses of the talent they need to compete globally.

    The Liberal Democrats are the natural party of business, with a clear plan to stop Brexit, save free movement and focus on addressing the real issues facing our economy.

    We will build a brighter future by securing the UK's place as a global research powerhouse, supporting our entrepreneurs, and creating good jobs in new and growing industries.

    There are just days to go until the UK goes to the polls in the 2019 general election. Now, more than ever, it's crucial that we stop Boris Johnson in his pursuit of a hard Brexit and a far-right Conservative government.

    If you weren't already convinced, here are just a few things Johnson would do to Britain if he manages to stay in No. 10 and why we must stop him.

    Although Boris Johnson is staying frit, Jo Swinson has braved the expertise of Andrew Neil's questioning to be interviewed by him.

    And she showed Boris Johnson what a girly swot can do:

    Welcome to the 'Twelve Lies of Brexit', where we will be unwrapping the biggest porkies told by senior Leave politicians.

    Let's start with the obvious:

    1. The lie on the side of a bus

    Perhaps the most famous of the Brexit lies, Boris Johnson championed an outlandish, fraudulent promise on the side of his Vote Leave bus in 2016.

    The new EU Commission was voted into office by MEPs this week (and will serve for the next five years). The UK has not proposed a Commissioner.

    Upcoming dates

    Following the USA's lack of appointment of judges to the WTO's Appellate Body and its blocking of the replacement of any members, the Appellate Body will cease to be operational after 10th December, when the mandates of two of three remaining Appellate Body members will expire. This means that world trade disputes can no longer be adjudicated by an international court. (So much for Conservative claims that they will trade on WTO rules, something which no other country in the world does).

    The United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP25) begins on 2nd December. A major problem to be solved is that emissions by shipping and by aircraft are so far unregulated by any laws.

    The European Parliament declared a Climate Emergency for the EU, (against the votes of Conservatives and Christian-Democrats who only wanted it to be designated as "urgent".)

    The European Council (the meeting of the national leaders in the EU) will meet on 12-13 December. It is not clear who will represent the UK.

    In Strasbourg in December, MEPs will elect a new EU Ombudsman for the next five years. There are four candidates : an Irish lady, 10 years Ombudsman in Ireland, an Estonian judge at the European Court on Human Rights, a Swedish MEP, and a Latvian. One described the jobs as "you need a people personality and an elephant skin".

    In the General Election, the Liberal Democrats are either first or second in 134 seats and in dozens of other seats are within ten points. Every single vote in these seats will count.
