    Over the last five weeks, hundreds of Liberal Democrat activists have been hard at work campaigning in Lewisham East, for our fantastic candidate, Lucy Salek.

    Recent events have raised the profile of the Windrush Generation in the media and public consciousness, but sadly not for reasons our country can be proud of. Instead, we should be celebrating the contributions of migrant communities in the UK.

    Windrush citizens like myself have lived here for decades, working, raising families and making a positive contribution to British society. Our generation answered the call to help address the UK's post-WW2 labour shortage, yet many of our children know nothing of that Windrush legacy.

    To celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Windrush, Liberal Democrats are calling for 22nd June to be recognised as 'National Windrush Day'. Let's give people from all ethnic backgrounds a reason to celebrate their unique identities, histories and rightful home in UK.

    In news from Scotland, the Liberal Democrats have been instrumental in delivering new legislation that offers greater protection and powers to Scotland's island communities.

    Year in year out, our islands are voted among the best places to live. From unique culture to breathtaking landscapes and world class heritage, we have it all. But for those of us who live and work in our islands, we know there are also unique challenges.

    Article: Jun 13, 2018

    The EU Withdrawal Bill came back to the House of Commons this week after 15 Government defeats in the Lords. Theresa May's strategy this week was shaped entirely by her tenuous grip over her own ranks.

    Theresa May has struggled for months to maintain Tory unity during her mishandling of Brexit negotiations. Cabinet disputes are spilling into public view, ministers are resigning, and Boris Johnson is whispering about his wish to replace Theresa with Trump.

    Article: Jun 11, 2018

    Linden Homes seems to have overlooked its landscaping obligations on the Camomile Lawn development in Totnes. There are a number of omissions on its part and they are as follows;

    The first omission of Linden is its failure to construct a new Devon bank to the left of the access road running from the Duke Road junction to Paradise Walk. The bank should consist of an earth mound 800 mm high with turf pegged to the sides and topped with a new hedgerow of mixed planting.

    By-elections might not be able to change the Government, but shock results can change politics and change Britain.

    Since the referendum, every time Jeremy Corbyn could have stood up to the Tories on Brexit, he's sat on his hands.

    We can only stop Brexit with the Labour party's votes. And the only way we get those votes is if they're scared of a pro-European tide sweeping them away.

    He explores some of the serious problems facing capitalism today, and how these issues have provoked reactions from the extremes of the political spectrum. Common sense reform is necessary to curb the worst excesses of capitalism.

    "Scarcely a day goes by without a scandal erupting around greedy or bullying bosses, pilfered pension funds, business tax dodging, chaotic private train operators, rewards for failure, bankers' bonuses, price gouging or exploitation of gig workers, zero hours contract employees or modern slaves.
