    Today's New York Times alleges that Cambridge Analytica 'harvested' 50 million Facebook profiles in a potentially huge data breach.

    If these allegations against Cambridge Analytica are correct then it is a shocking betrayal of people's personal data.

    If this data was then actively exploited for political gain it is both underhand and immoral.

    Back when I wrote How to rebuild the Liberal Democrats, the sort-of sequel to the original core votes pamphlet which attempted to set out in detail what a core votes approach means for the party's organisation, I highlighted why the party should move to making its key tools and resources all available free at the point of use to party members:

    Article: Mar 16, 2018
    By Paul Reynolds in Liberal Democrat Voice

    I once used the phrase 'No-one is going to vote Lib Dem because of our policy on Azimstana'. The point is an obvious one; surveys show us that the average British voter is more concerned about domestic issues such as health, education, welfare, employment, immigration and crime. Understandably so.

    However, there are three very good reasons why, notwithstanding, we need to invest time in foreign policy, international relations and the global economy.

  • Liberal Democrats, open, tolerant and united
    Article: Mar 16, 2018
    By Nick Harvey in Liberal Democrat Voice

    Since becoming Chief Executive, I am trying to streamline our operations and cut out unnecessary waste. With limited resources, we need to be agile and dynamic, to simplify processes and maximise the time, money and effort we devote to campaigning.

    Currently, local parties are either invoiced or debited for Connect and Salesforce. Processing all this and then chasing it up involves significant staff time and pointless bureaucracy.

    The annual statistics on stillbirths, infant deaths and childhood deaths in England and Wales were published yesterday by the government. The report also includes data on the causes of death and information on key risk factors.

    This report evidences the first two-year increase in infant mortality rates in England and Wales for the last 30 years.

    I made my first ever cake in over seventy years to celebrate our 30th Birthday appearance at the Spring Conference in Southport and we had a competition to guess the weight of the cake for a £1 entry fee. The prize was, of course, the cake PLUS a FREE entry to the Green Liberal Democrat Conference in Nottingham on 19th May.

    Back in the 70s, Margaret Thatcher was dubbed Thatcher the Milk Snatcher as she introduced cuts to free school milk. Nearly 50 years on, it's another Tory Government, in cahoots with the DUP, who are trying to restrict free school meals, which were introduced due to Lib Dem pressure during the coalition years.

    Vladimir Putin is a bully - and he's a bully who needs to be put back in his box. Here's five ways Britain could punish Putin for his murderous adventurism:

    Putin is attempting to be the puppet master of the world, it is time we cut his strings.

    The UK must build a coalition of the willing, able to put an end to Putin's murderous adventurism, and show murder condoned or directed comes at a very heavy price.

    Putin is a bully who will not be put back in his box by entreaties from the Leader of the Opposition to have a chinwag over beer and sandwiches.

    Read Vince Cable's response to the Chancellor's "Spring Statement"

    The Spring Statement was a non-event.

    The OECD gave us the clearer picture - that the economy is bumping along the bottom of the G20, well behind the likes of Australia, Canada and the Euro area.

    The OBR's fresh forecasts are still a long way behind the figures estimated in March 2016 before the EU referendum.

    By Newshound in Liberal Democrat Voice

    The package, passed by the party at its Spring Conference in Southport, calls for new powers that will see local authorities able to build and invest in more affordable and social housing. This includes greater access to borrowing for local authorities, strengthened powers to bring empty homes back into use and the power to direct the use of otherwise unwanted public land. Alongside measures to allow local government to abandon Right to Buy and to require that profit from council house sales is invested in new social housing.

    Since 2015 the Conservative Government have been slashing money from the Universal Credit left, right and centre. It needs to stop.

    Ahead of the Chancellor's Spring Statement, I'm calling on the government to reverse cuts to the Universal Credit Work Allowance.

    The Treasury reduced the programme's funding by £3 billion annually after the Liberal Democrats left government in 2015, reducing the amount people can earn while on Universal Credit.

    Thanks to the hard work of Liberal Democrats in both the House of Lords and the House of Commons, we've secured a major victory in the fight against cold-calling.

    As the Financial Guidance and Claims Bill returns to the House of Commons today, the Liberal Democrats have secured a significant victory following the government's acceptance of crucial amendments tabled by Liberal Democrats peers in the House of Lords.

    Led by Lord Sharkey, the Liberal Democrats campaigned in the House of Lords to end the scourge of cold-calling in relation to pensions, claims management and other financial services.

    Rounding off the Southport conference which saw the party adopt a new strategy, Lib Dem leader Vince Cable took a swing at Jeremy Corbyn (a life-long Eurosceptic) for talking about workers but supporting a Brexit which will hit workers:

    Jeremy Corbyn is letting down the very people he claims to defend because:
