    Bluntly, David Davis' resignation today makes it clear: this government is up shit creek without a paddle.

    It is obvious to all - Brexiters and Remainers alike - that Theresa May cannot deliver on Brexit.

    This is most important issue in a generation and the government has failed.

    Today is UK Black Pride, a day to hear from and celebrate those of us who live in the BAME-LGBT intersection.

    I am one of these people. nadya-phoenix.png

    My name is Nadya Phoenix and I am on the board of the newly established Liberal Democrat Campaign for Race Equality.

    Coming out was a long, and at times very lonely road for me. It took attending an Arab Lesbian/Bisexual event for me to realise that I was not alone. It was a massive step in accepting my sexuality and myself.

    East Devon LibDems held a very enjoyable safari supper in Exmouth on Saturday 30th June, raising a tidy sum for constituency funds in the process. It is always wonderful to meet members who may not be able to attend our other social events around the constituency. The supper took place in the homes of three Exmouth members, and featured an amazing and delicious array of dishes- we have talented cooks in ou r number, it turns out!

    What is an opposition day debate?

    Opposition Days are a chance for opposition party's to decide on a motion for debate in the House of Commons. In most cases the Official Opposition will choose the topic, but this Thursday we will get to set the agenda and debate an issue of our choosing. We only get to lead opposition day debates a couple of times a year, so we want to ensure we use this to debate the issue which is most important to our members.

    One of our suppliers, Typeform, informed us that on the 3rd May 2018 they suffered a data breach - and data from Liberal Democrat members was among the data affected.

    You will have received an email if your data was affected.

    Typeform have informed us that an external hacker managed to get unauthorised access to one of our recent Member Experience Survey and downloaded the results.

    This survey contained names and email address, so we are asking affected members to watch out for potential phishing scams or spam emails. This survey also contained information about political opinions, such as the campaigns and policy areas that are most important to you.

    The survey did not contain any financial details and no other data held on any other systems has been compromised in this breach.

    We are in communication with Typeform and will be re-evaluating our relationship with them in light of this incident.

    We take the security of your data seriously and if we are not satisfied that sufficient steps have been taken to secure your data, we will terminate our relationship with Typeform.

    We have also voluntarily reported this incident to the Information Commissioner's Office.

    We're incredibly sorry that this happened and if you have any other questions about the data breach, please feel free to contact us by emailing help@libdems.org.uk - we'll do our best to answer any queries you may have.

  • Six medics in discussion.
    Article: Jul 2, 2018

    There have been times this past week when the emotional arguments surrounding the medicinal cannabis debate have threatened to overwhelm me.

    It's an issue that's affected me not just as a politician, but on a deeply personal level too.

    It seemed utterly unbelievable that it took a young boy's life potentially being endangered before the Conservative government accepted the evidence that many have been pointing to for years.

    One of my own proudest political moments as a Liberal Democrat was moving the amendment in a parliamentary committee that abolished section 28 - that shocking discriminatory law which banned the "promotion" of homosexuality by local authorities and schools. And with 2018 marking 30 years since the original passing of Section 28 we need to recall the damage that odious law did: it not only led to the LGBT+ community being shunned by some but it also gave rise to homophobic bullying in many communities.

    "At the centre of the last budget was a pledge to build 300,000 UK houses a year to address the 'housing crisis'.

    We were taken back to the days when a post-war Conservative Government, under Churchill, was elected with this level of ambition, and more than succeeded.

    Or to the interwar National Government when, under the much-maligned Neville Chamberlain, when there was a similar level of ambition and achievement in the aftermath of, and as an antidote to, the Great Crash.

  • People's March (Eleanor Rylance)

    A significant group of LibDems from all the South West made their way to London on Saturday, some setting off before 6am on the coaches arranged by Devon for Europe, to take part in one of the biggest, most peaceful, colourful and purposeful demonstrations London has ever seen. We were clapped and congratulated by passers-by despite crowding that must have been a tad inconvenient for them at times!
