    Today, Jo Swinson is taking her Leader's Tour of the UK to Scotland to say loud and clear that the Liberal Democrats will protect Scotland's place at the heart of the EU and in the UK.

    A vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to stop Brexit and keep Scotland in the UK. At this general election we're offering voters a real way to stop the chaos.

    Thank you for offering to make some calls for the Liberal Democrats! Before you get started, here are some handy tips and tricks...

    Before the Call

    1. Always smile. A smile can be heard in your voice.

    2. Check if there is more than one person in the household - their names will appear in the boxes marked: "Additional members of the household"

    3. Before you start phoning, click on each person in the household, to check to the age and gender of the people living there. This will give you an idea of who you might be speaking to as soon as someone answers the phone.

    4. If there is no answer, click on "no" against "Were you able to speak to … ", and tick the appropriate box. Please note that you need to record "Not at Home" or "Left message" or "Moved" against EACH member of the household.

    As you will know, our Party has long been recognised as the UK's lead Party of Remain.

    Recently we have been working with the independent "Unite to Remain" campaign to maximise the number of Remain MPs elected in this snap General Election.

    Unite to Remain is made up of the 3 parties committed unequivocally to the cause of Remain: The Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru and the Greens. It's really disappointing that Labour would not step up too, but they are simply not a Party of Remain.

    The UK should be leading the world on tackling the environment crisis. Our planet is on the brink of being irreparably damaged and we are responsible for that damage.

    The climate emergency is real and our planet is heating to unsustainable levels. Young people have taken to the streets because they're so worried that the Conservatives are failing to act.

    The NHS is the envy of the world, but our mental health service is not. Waiting times are being missed, people are not being referred for the treatment they need, and often action is taken only when at 'crisis' point, or too late.

    That's why the Liberal Democrats are dedicated to transforming mental health services by treating them with the same urgency as physical health.

    The Liberal Democrats are surging across the UK. We've won hundreds of council seats and 15 brilliant new MEPs - our best election results ever.

    People are tired of the same dreary offers from the Conservative and Labour parties. Whether it's the days of the empire or 1970s socialism, Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn want to take our country backwards.

    Today, we're kicking off the Liberal Democrats' Plan for the Future.

    At our general election campaign launch, leader Jo Swinson has declared that a Liberal Democrat government will Stop Brexit and use the £50 billion Remain Bonus to invest in public services and tackle inequality.

    This £50 billion injection to the areas that need it most can only be delivered by a Lib Dem government - we are the only party standing up to stop Brexit.

    Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn are running scared.

    That was the message coming across when ITV announced an election debate at the end of last week - but only between the two tired old parties.

    This is a stitch-up by Labour and the Conservatives. Two men having a cosy pro-Brexit debate and shutting out the woman leader of the strongest party of Remain. It's unacceptable, and we want to see it changed.
