    "With no Liberal Democrats in the Ministry of Justice driving forward reform and making cutting the cost of reoffending a priority we have seen progress grind to a halt.

    Losing membership of the single market would hit prices, jobs and wages and the Liberal Democrats strongly back Britain's continued membership.

    Jeremy Corbyn has never spoken in Parliament positively about free trade in parliament since becoming an MP and has described support of the single market as 'free trade dogma'.

    The Lib Dem Witney by-election HQ was abuzz with activity when I visited to help today. I was astonished by the busy team all set to work so early in the campaign. It was great weather for delivering leaflets. I enjoyed doing my very large bundle in Carterton, with the sound of the aircraft at Brize Norton in the background.

    York

    One federal conference done, the next is on the horizon already. The deadlines for motions and the like to the spring 2017 conference in York have been published:

    As ever, watch out for how close the motions drafting deadline is the start of the year. Especially as an unfortunately large proportion of the people who think they don't need drafting advice for motions or amendments then end up submitting wording which is not drafted well.

    For more information on the conferences in general, take a look at Lib Dem conference: what you need to know.

    Two weeks ago, Jeremy Corbyn suggested Britain should give up its membership of the EU's Single Market - a position he shares with only the most hardcore Brexiteers.

    The single market means it as easy to trade between London and Berlin as it is between Edinburgh and London. Within the Single Market, goods, people, services and capital can move freely, meaning there's no lengthy customs checks, borders to cross and goods can move freely and cheaply.

    Article: Sep 23, 2016
    By Cllr John Marriott - Lincoln, Sleaford and North Hykeham

    All but five years of my 34 year career were spent in comprehensive schools. Even though some may have argued that my specialism, modern foreign languages, would have been better pursued in a more selective system, I made a conscious choice and have no regrets.
