    With the exit deal set for a resounding rejection and an abject lack of leadership, it's finally time to give the voters a say

    The choice facing MPs on Tuesday - whether to approve the terms of Britain's exit from the EU negotiated by the prime minister - is the most important postwar decision parliament has confronted. It will irrevocably shape our nation's future, Britain's status and influence in the world, our economic competitiveness and the rights of future generations to live, study and work across a continent.

    For two years the Liberal Democrats have led the fight to give the people the final say on Brexit and the opportunity to Exit from Brexit.

    Tuesday's vote is the best chance yet to secure a People's Vote and the Liberal Democrats will be using every opportunity to demand better than Brexit.

    The Conservatives have made a mess of Brexit, aided and abetted by the Labour leadership.

    To try and sell a plan that would rob us of many vital cross-border crime-fighting tools on the basis of national security takes quite the brass neck.

    Consider the European Arrest Warrant. It enables us to bring criminals who've fled our shores back to justice in the UK, as well as to extradite thousands of others to face justice in other European countries.

    Theresa May's plan to leave the European Union is off to a disastrous start. How will it finish up?

    Brexit is often sold by its most committed supporters on the right as a constitutional version of the economic doctrine of Thatcherism, a clean break with the failed policies of the past. These fanatics succeeded in convincing David Cameron, who was prone to flattery but supine in the face of aggression, that a popular vote in a referendum was a remedy for the unrepresentative nature of Westminster politics. Once they did away with Mr Cameron, they installed Theresa May and carried on with legislative manoeuvring to enable an irreversible transformation of society. The hard Brexiters are ruthless about the means, and in denial about the fall-out of their desires. Yet now the game is up.

    At our 2018 Spring Conference the Welsh Liberal Democrats followed in the footsteps of our Scottish friends and passed policy calling on Welsh Government to overhaul its guidance on school uniforms to make then more inclusive for trans and non-binary young people.

    I am proud to be in a party where members' shape our policy - and can directly make a real difference in peoples' lives.

    Today as we mark the international day for persons with disabilities, I am very aware that one billion people around the world live with a disability - that's roughly 15% of the global population. I am one of them, mainly using a wheelchair and sometimes walking with sticks. I could have written something smooth and supportive, but I am angry at having to be an afterthought in our society today.

    A report on the potential for land value taxes in Scotland is about to be published, ALTER has learned.

    In January this year, the Scottish Land Commission (SLC) invited tenders for a study of the potential of land value taxation (LVT) to reduce inequality in land access, in particular to look at technical issues that would face any plan to implement LVT.

    I'm a European living in Britain, not a 'queue jumper'. And I refuse to believe ordinary people are as hostile as her

    I have a confession to make: I'm not sure I could trust myself if I actually ran into David Cameron. Ever since the Brexit referendum, I have been trying to avoid any occasions where I think we might have to meet. I know myself, and if I saw him I'm not sure I would be able to stop myself from telling him in no uncertain terms exactly how I feel about the damage that he has inflicted on Britain, both economic and political, and about how he has impaired the chances of young people, while endangering the European project and European values precisely when we need them most.
