    On Thursday, England went to the polls in the local elections - and going in the pundits weren't exactly predicting a great night for us:

    Firstly, I want to thank everyone who has worked so hard in these elections.

    Whether you got the result you hoped for or not; you have done a fantastic job. Thank you.

    So far it looks like we're on course for a great set of results.

    We've defended our Councils in Eastleigh, Cheltenham and Sutton. We have also pulled off a spectacular victory in taking control of Richmond.

    We've made gains in Hull, Liverpool, Sunderland, Gosport, West Oxfordshire, Cambridge, Sheffield, Portsmouth, Winchester and St Albans. We've held our ground in places like Southwark.

    All over England, people are voting Liberal Democrat today - because they know they'll get Councillors who will champion quality social care, strong local schools, and well-funded services.

    And - even better, thousands of people have been tweeting to say why they're voting for their local Lib Dem candidates - here are a few of our favourites:

    What was the amendment on Monday evening?

    Amendment 50 of the EU Withdrawal Bill Report Stage in the House of Lords put the option of the public final say on the deal before the House of Commons. This would include an extension of Article 50 so that there would be time for the vote to be held before the UK is due to leave the EU.

    Yesterday evening just a handful of votes stopped us from giving the British public the final say on the Brexit deal.

    If the Labour leadership had voted with us last night, the amendment would have passed. But they didn't.

    On this key issue, the Labour party has gone missing in action.

    At the outset of our campaign, few believed we would get this close. But the momentum is now with us.

  • Park Road Allotments - portrait
    Article: May 1, 2018

    Hounslow Council's Local Area Plan includes a review of existing sites allocated for building, including building on Park Road Allotment Gardens in Isleworth, despite the various existing plan policies it contravenes.

    The Park Road allotments are identified as open space and an Asset of Community Value in the Local Development Plan. However, the designation does not prevent this privately owned land being built upon.

    Petition: May 1, 2018

    We, the undersigned, petition the London Borough of Hounslow to comply with its statutory obligation to provide adequate allotment plots in the borough and to this end, to investigate the feasibility of an application for compulsory hiring of the Park Road Allotment Gardens Isleworth, in accordance with the provisions of the Small Holdings and Allotments Act 1908.

    Upskirting is the act of taking a photo up a woman's skirt without her consent.

    In 2009 it was made illegal in Scotland but shockingly it remains legal in England and Wales.

    Authorities can ask a perpetrator to delete the photo but under current law no further prosecution is possible.

    Police have managed to prosecute some people for upskirting for outraging public decency. But this is patently absurd as it should not matter how public it was or who else saw it. This also ignores the fact this is a crime with a victim.

  • Palace of Westminster.
    Article: Apr 23, 2018

    In the face of further defeats on the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, and following further pressure from Peers across the House of Lords, the government has brought forward amendments to ensure that the UK still has the ability to refer to and apply EU guidance for legal matters in our courts going forwards.
