    Over the weekend, member Ruby Chow started a thread on Twitter asking Lib Dems who the top ten most important people in the party were to them.

    What followed was a thread full of love for Lib Dems across the country who have encouraged, supported or inspired others.

    Some members named MPs and Lords that inspired them the most:

    The report - "Taxing Land, Not Investment" - calls for the abolition of business rates and its replacement with a tax on land values, the Commercial Landowner Levy (CLL). The levy would remove buildings and machinery from calculations and tax only the land value of commercial sites, boosting investment and cutting taxes for businesses in nine out of ten English local authorities.

    The Government have refused to guarantee that MPs will see the full impact analysis of a no-deal Brexit before the final vote on departure from the EU.

    The Government are clearly losing the plot.

    Refusing to show MPs the full damage a no-deal Brexit would inflict on our country makes a mockery of the discredited mantra 'Taking Back Control'.

    In a speech today the Brexit Secretary set out the no-deal Brexit papers.

    No one will be surprised that the Brexit Secretary was hot and flustered today. What he set out means a disaster for British families and British jobs.

    We also have yet further confirmation that there is no prospect that a plan will be delivered in the next six months, not least on the Northern Ireland border and post-Brexit customs arrangements.

  • Jeremy Corbyn.

    Yesterday, I sent you a video of Corbyn refusing to answer a question about whether we would be better off after Brexit five times.

    Already this has been seen fifty thousand times on Facebook thanks to you all sharing it online - and with no sign of it slowing down.

    You can watch it yourself here:

    More than 7 in 10 Labour voters want to have a vote on the final deal that Theresa May has put together - with an option to stay in the EU.

  • David Chalmers & Eleanor Rylance at Pride in Plymouth 11/08/18 (Eleanor Rylance)
    Article: Aug 17, 2018
    By Eleanor Rylance

    Saturday 11th August was cold, windy and rainy in Plymouth but nothing could dampen the enthusiasm of the marchers of Pride in Plymouth, including a number of Liberal Democrats from Plymouth and around the South West.

    Caroline Voaden, David Chalmers and Eleanor Rylance, along with Archie the Liberal Demadogue were among LibDems prepared to get soaked to the bones for the LibDem cause. Pride is always a fantastic, upbeat event, attended by many young people, and our little stall was mobbed by young people congratulating us for fighting for the pro-EU cause, and defending liberal values of tolerance and acceptance.

    Article: Aug 15, 2018

    It may be mid-August but the bad news about Brexit is increasing by the day! Senior Brexiteers such as Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg continue to peddle their populist nonsense, against the facts: the pound dropping against the Euro; international organisations moving their EU HQ out of Britain; and even the Governor of the Bank of England confirming Brexit will not be good for the economy. Only Vince Cable and the Lib Dems remain totally committed to an Exit from Brexit, and giving the people a Final Say on the deal, with more regions that voted leave now changing their minds.
