    As Brexit drags on, it becomes clearer every day - it's a national embarrassment. More and more people are realising how important EU membership is for our country and our future.

    Theresa May is trying to push through a deal that panders to her party's extreme fringe and Nigel Farage. Again and again, Jeremy Corbyn has helped her, letting down Labour supporters across the UK.

    Corbyn's dodgy comments.

    Trying to stitch up a deal behind closed doors.

    Shadow ministers bragging how they're bailing the Tories out on Brexit.

    Jeremy Corbyn has teamed up with the Tories to drag us out the EU at any cost. Labour is a pro-Brexit party.

    Let's compare and contrast that to the Liberal Democrats.

    We launched a new poster in London today, calling out Jeremy Corbyn's dodgy Brexit voting record.

    With a weak minority government, he could have stood up and put an end to this national embarrassment. But instead, he's voted with the Conservatives 29 times to push Brexit through.

    Actions speak louder than words. Labour is a Brexit party.

    Content warning: this blog post will discuss issues relating to eating disorders

    It's mental health awareness week, and this year's theme is body image. Many people who suffer from ill mental health, such as having an eating disorder, still don't get the support they need. This needs to change.

    We need early intervention, better training for doctors, and standardised waiting times for adults, like we have for children.

    There was a new round of EU election opinion polling in this weekend - and the Lib Dems are performing amazingly!

    The data released has us between 12 and 15% - the highest we've been in years, with big increases in all 3. If we carry on this momentum, we could well record our best European election showing - ever! We're already well above the Conservatives - and getting close to challenging Labour for second place.

    We are a proud European party, and we want to keep it that way!

    As a part of us wanting to remain in the EU, we are excited to announce our new joint project with the German liberal party Free Democratic Party.

    It will allow you make direct contact with a new German friend to exchange ideas to help bridge the divide that has been caused by nationalism and misconceptions.

    WARNING: there are naughty words ahead. Stray political editors from the Daily Express may find their sensibilities offended!

    We launched our EU manifesto yesterday: Bollocks to Brexit. It's as bold as the name suggests - committing us to:

    ✔︎ A People's Vote
    ✔︎ Defending our fishing rights from being traded away
    ✔︎ A carbon-neutral EU by 2050

    Brexit latest

    They say sailors should not complain about the sea, and - accordingly politicians shouldn't complain about the media.

    Nonetheless, it is one of the frustrations of leading a relatively small (if high quality) group in the House of Commons that we sometimes struggle to get the media coverage we deserve. Likewise PMQs, where I am called only once a month despite our party having secured more than double the vote of the SNP, whose leader is called twice a week!

    Today, we're launching our EU manifesto. We're running our campaign on a clear message - a vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to stop Brexit.

    We were the first to call for a People's Vote in 2016 - and we haven't stopped fighting for it, nearly 3 years later. We want Britain to remain in the EU because it's best for our economy, our public services and best for the environment.

    Brexit is a national embarrassment.

    And while they're trying to keep their position on Brexit as vague as possible, Labour has aided the Tories in pushing it through every step of the way. They're a pro-Brexit party.

    In fact, we did some digging. The Labour whip has instructed parliamentarians to abstain or vote with the Tory government on 28 Brexit votes. These include:
