    By Janet Berridge in Liberal Democrat Voice

    After two years as the National Liberal Club's first woman Chairman, I am proud to be stepping down just as the Club has agreed to experiment with relaxing the strict dress code it has had since 1979.

    During my time, we have taken many leaps forward as a home for liberalism: a 15% growth in membership, driven by large-scale Lib Dem recruitment; an array of transparency measures and governance reforms; and a swathe of exciting and stimulating events drawing on the liberal tradition from the world over. But I'm aware that we haven't always lived up to our liberal mantra - as a club founded as an inclusive home for liberals - in having a strict dress code that was first introduced as a temporary measure 39 years ago.

    You probably don't know that Vince Cable was on Radio 5 Live as the birthday guest on Sunday night because it's not really been reported anywhere. It's worth catching up on it though because it's one of the most open, personal and moving interviews I've heard him give. He's mentioned the racism he and his first wife Olympia faced as a mixed race couple before this.

    Congratulations to all the very many Liberal Democrats who stood for local council seats this month.

    Local democracy relies on those who put themselves forward to represent residents, so whether you won or not, I hope you will be proud of having stood.

    As a party, we saw results greatly exceeding expectations, with a big net gain of 75 councillors and four new councils under Liberal Democrat majority control.

    We're looking for members for two new policy working groups: one on health and social care and one on climate change.

    Do you have expert knowledge of the healthcare system? Of social care? Or climate change and energy policy?

    If so there is an opportunity to help set the direction of party policy on these issues by joining a policy working groups. The party's Federal Policy Committee is launching two new working groups: a Health and Social Care working group and a Climate Change and the Low Carbon Environment working group.

    I've been blown away by the thousands of people who have joined the campaign to ban upskirting so far.

    Together, I know we can achieve a change in the law.

    Two weeks ago at Prime Minister's, Questions the Prime Minister said the Government were considering supporting my bill ban upskirting. We need to make sure her warm words are backed up with action

    Giving the wizard a home and helping save A&E were highlights. But the real magic for an elected mayor is reviving local democracy.

    After retiring last week after 16 years as Watford's mayor, making me the longest-serving directly elected woman mayor in England, I feel more strongly than ever that mayors are the key to reviving local democracy. For me, councils have missed a trick in not adopting the mayoral system more widely. Since mayors often represent an electorate much larger than that of any MP, their mandate makes it harder for ministers to treat them with the mixture of condescension and contempt usually reserved for local government.

  • Exit from Brexit
    Article: May 18, 2018
    By Mark Pack Author, 101 Ways To Win An Election

    Every now and again someone in the Lib Dems argues that the party's focus on Brexit is mistaken because the issue will be over and done with come the spring of next year.

    What's odd about these comments when I've seen them made is that they're not followed up by any evidence or justification beyond the (to the utterer) apparent self-evident logic that once Brexit has been dropped or come into force it's bound to be dead as a political issue.

    Ahead of a Senedd statement on International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia, the Welsh Liberal Democrats have urged Wales to build on recent progress in LGBT rights and fight for safety, equality and freedom for LGBT people across the globe.

    There is no doubt that the past few years have seen great strides in LGBT rights in the UK and across the world, but there is far more that needs to be done to create a world where every LGBT person can live safely, equally and freely.

    If you want to see rage ruining everything, go and listen to some of the dads on the touchline at a kids' football match. On the new episode of ANGER MANAGEMENT WITH NICK CLEGG, the former Deputy Prime Minister talks to footballing legend and Match Of The Day presenter GARY LINEKER about anger on the football pitch and in the public eye, Gary's personal politics… and what it's like to be monstered for speaking your mind on social media.

    Two announcements today throw into sharp relief the detachment from reality currently being suffered by the Tory government.

    In one, it has been announced that the UK is among a group of EU countries being prosecuted by the EU for air pollution violations. This could lead to significant fines, which will no doubt be used by Brexit fanatics as a justification for leaving. After all, they are our children, so we can gas them if we want to!!!!
