The Liberal Democrats are the only party fighting to keep Britain open, tolerant and united.

Open means open-hearted, open-minded, forward-looking, modern, green, internationalist and pro-European. We believe Britain is at its best when it is creative, innovative and outward-looking, comfortable in the fast-changing modern world and open to the opportunities and challenges of globalisation and the digital revolution.

Tolerant means diverse, compassionate and generous. We will always fight injustice and stand up for the underdog, the outsider, the individual, the minority and the vulnerable against the powerful.

United means we will always put the interests of the whole United Kingdom first. We reject the divisions in society, whether between young and old, urban and rural, leave and remain, or between regions and nations. We believe we are stronger - as communities, as a country and as a world - when we work together in our common interest.

If this sounds like you too, join us.

    On November 15, Eaton Councillor James Wright will brave the elements to take part in the 2018 Benjamin Foundation Sleep Out at Carrow Road.

    This is the 4th time the Benjamin Foundation have held this fundraising Sleep Out, and James has taken part since the beginning.

    James was prompted to campaign to raise awareness of issues around homelessness and rough sleeping after seeing the short film - Homeless and Rough Sleeping in Norwich - back in 2012. The film contained a young girl talking about her experiences of rough sleeping, and only a couple of years previously she was a student at the school where James worked.

    Jeremy Corbyn was asked "If you could stop Brexit, would you?"
    His response?
    "We can't stop it. The referendum took place. Article 50 has been triggered."

    But Brexit can be stopped through a People's Vote

    Today, Jo Johnson quit as a Conservative government minister over the Brexit deal Theresa May is putting together - a deal which gives people the worst of both worlds.

    The choice being presented to the British people is no choice at all.

    Jo Johnson MP

    In his resignation statement, Johnson said that the deal being concocted will inflict "serious economic and political harm on the country". He said what is happening is not what anyone wants and the 2016 referendum did not provide any mandate for it.

    The Liberal Democrats had been campaigning for the Human Rights Act ever since we were founded, but our fight to protect people's rights and freedoms didn't end when it passed...

    Conservative and Labour MPs consistently vote for illiberal new laws that curtail civil liberties.

    It has been reported that more than 400 high-rise residential buildings still have the same type of external cladding blamed for the Grenfell Tower fire.

    When it is about people's homes, safety must come first.

    Grenfell should never have happened. The fact that thousands of families are still living in unsafe high-rise buildings is a disgrace.

    It won cross-party support, and passed overwhelmingly in the Scottish Parliament, with 106 votes for and 8 against - and one MSP who said he voted against by mistake!
