    In July 2016, in the aftermath of the referendum, the Liberal Democrats were a lone voice calling for a final say on whatever deal was done on Brexit.

    Today, an estimated 700,000 people marched on the streets of London, calling for a people's vote on Brexit.

    That makes it the biggest protest since the Iraq War.

    On Saturday, during the People's Vote march in London, activists will be given a piece of Labour's Brexit fudge - reminding them that Jeremy Corbyn's Labour party is fudging its position on giving the people a final say on Brexit.

    Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour leadership have defied us all with their 'Brexit fudge'. Inspired by Willy Wonka himself, the Labour's opposition to Brexit is just 'pure imagination'.

    This 'Brexit fudge' will stick in the throat of most Labour voters. Given the damage Brexit will cause, Labour's failure to oppose this Tory mess will be difficult to stomach.

    But for Brexiters, Chef Corbyn's 'Brexit fudge' will have them salivating. It will make their Brexit dreams that much sweeter. Indeed, it will go well with a glass of Raab's confusing concoction and the Eton mess being served up by Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg.

    Like the Liberal Democrats, D66 is a progressive liberal party that holds its roots in the free-spirited leftist liberal party.

    On a strong Europe, Mr. Jetten said:

    "We find ourselves in an unprecedented, chaotic and ever-worsening political situation. The situation is so alarming that it not only requires the frank truth-speaking that is possible among friends, but also calls for all the moral support and consolation that friends can give."

    Today Theresa May announced that she was open to extending the transition period - a clear admittance that her Brexit deal is unworkable.

    The Prime Minister is now left to defend a policy she doesn't really believe in, which her cabinet are still squabbling over - and which is it increasingly clear she can't deliver.

    Businesses with 500+ staff should be forced to reveal how they help employees with mental health issues if they fail to disclose the information voluntarily.

    The Companies Act should be amended so employers have to report on workplace mental health.

    Firms must become far more transparent about how they support staff with mental health issues, as well as better measure key mental health indicators such as absences.

    Once again we've seen us winning a fantastic by-election victory, this time up in Chesterfield on 4 October, with Tony Rogers increasing our vote share to 47% and gaining the seat off Labour, proving that once again where we work hard and find strong local champions, we win. Tony and his team did everything needed to get our message out, find out where our supporters were, and then getting them out to vote on polling day. Congratulations to him and his team, and also to our other winners in local government by elections.

    In a letter published last week (11 October) in the Worthing Herald, Liberal Democrat European Group (LDEG) Chair, Nick Hopkinson, argues the chances of a People's Vote and an Exit from Brexit have grown substantially:

    People are changing their minds about Brexit as our political and economic mess worsens. Recent polls show solid leads in favour of a Peoples Vote on any Brexit deal and a slowly growing, but slim, majority for staying in the European Union (EU).
