    Helen Evans, former head of safeguarding at Oxfam, made damning accusations about the lack of basic processes and disregard of serious concerns she raised, the substance of which were not denied by the Chief Executive.

    The government must now accept that nothing short of a full and far-reaching enquiry into illegal sexual behaviour within Oxfam and across the wider aid sector, will do.

    Michel Barnier has warned that a transition period immediately after Brexit is 'not a given' and that he did not understand some of the UK's positions on Brexit.

    When Barnier says he doesn't understand some of the positions the UK government are taking over Brexit, he is not only speaking for the EU but also the entire British population.

    Things are changing. More and more people are waking up to the need for a new vote on the final Brexit deal.

    Even Nigel Farage is!

    What we all agree on is that Theresa May and her Brexit Conservative government are failing badly on the negotiations with the European Union.

    Half the country wants to remain in the EU and the Liberal Democrats have not given up on them.

    NHS A&E waiting times have hit the worst levels on record.

    This is yet more evidence of the growing crisis in our health and social care services, where staff are being put under great pressure and quality of care for patients is suffering.

    When will the Government wake up to the fact that they urgently need to commit additional funding?

    If we look around us at our fellow Party members, elected representatives and spokespersons, we can see there is a problem: we are not as diverse in our race and ethnic minority profile as the communities we want to represent.

    Despite our clear liberal values, rejecting all forms of prejudice and inequality, the Party has failed to engage sufficiently with BAME communities.

    Conservative councillors are saying that they are "working towards renaming the divide Carhaix Way to Carhaix East and Carhaix West" - renaming the whole road.

    We think that a more practical answer would be to keep the original name and amend the name and postcode of the most southern section only
    - but what do you think?

    At PMQs today, I asked the Prime Minister to confirm that the NHS would not be up for sale in any US trade deal negotiations.

    Theresa May failed to give such a guarantee.

    The Prime Minister's non-answer to my question today can only infer that our NHS is indeed for sale under the Conservatives.

    Her pathetic non-committal response, failing to even mention our health service once, stands in stark contrast to guarantees given in 2015 by the EU trade negotiator with the US during the TTIP negotiations that our NHS would be protected.

    Unfortunately, Brexit Britain, standing on our own, will be in a far weaker negotiating position.

    POTHOLE HELL CONTINUES ON DEVON'S ROADS
    The 'pot hole hell' on Devon's roads is set to continue with news that more than a third of the roads listed for repairs this year will NOT now be done as Devon County Council slips further behind with repairs.
    The top priority 'Pothole Action Fund' set aside £3.2 million this year to pay for 273 scheme repairing potholes and maintaining minor roads across Devon, but figures released by County Hall show more than a third of the roads will now be left until next year for repair.

    In the last 100 years there have obviously been massive changes for the role of women in society. We are more equal, we are treated more fairly, and we face fewer obstacles in our lives. But the job is not yet done. As women we are not yet truly equal, we are not yet treated fairly, and we still face obstacles in our lives.
