    Petition: Aug 23, 2017

    Earlier this month an EU citizen, who has lived in the UK for more than 10 years, married to a British citizen, was ordered to leave the UK.

    This time, the Home Office claimed it was a clerical error.

    But if Theresa May's Government keeps pushing for a hard Brexit, the next time this happens, it might be for real.

    The Liberal Democrats won't let this happen.

    We need more people to join us to demand the government guarantee the right of EU citizens to remain in the UK.

    Will you help us do that by sharing the petition today?

    Latest Brexit policy paper leaves open possibility of European court of justice retaining say on UK law

    Theresa May was accused of a climbdown over the future sovereignty of British courts after a newly published government paper appeared to leave open the possibility that the European court of justice would influence UK law after Brexit.

    In BBC Newsbeat

    Vince Cable says the Liberal Democrats will keep pushing for the legalisation of cannabis.

    The party's new leader believes it makes sense to "regulate and control the market" rather than let criminals "control the mixing of substances".

    The government say it has "no plans to legalise cannabis".

    It says it remains a Class B drug "as there is clear scientific and medical evidence that cannabis is a harmful drug".

    Theresa May's attempts to downplay the government's climbdown over the European Court of Justice is a desperate attempt to hold together the Conservative Party and ward off a eurosceptic rebellion.

    The government's latest Brexit paper sets out a range of options that would give the ECJ indirect influence over the UK after Brexit, without confirming which arrangement it will pursue.

    Amber Rudd should apologise to up to 100 EU nationals who were mistakenly sent official letters threatening them with deportation.

    The Home Office today admitted up to 100 letters have been sent in error to EU nationals living in the UK, ordering them to leave the country or face deportation.

    It is appalling that some are now being officially threatened with deportation.

    Writing in the Yorkshire Post, Chris Grayling said: "the success of Northern transport depends on the North itself."

    It comes after the government dropped pledges to electrify rail routes in Wales, the Midlands and the North, while supporting the ยฃ30 billion Crossrail 2 scheme for London.

    This is a betrayal of the North and all the areas across the country being neglected under this Conservative government.

    The government is trying to dodge responsibility after breaking its promises to upgrade regional rail links.

    Chris Grayling may be a South East MP but as Transport Secretary he has a responsibility to look beyond the capital.

    The rest of the country deserves better. The government needs to act now to stop the 'Northern Powerhouse' becoming a byword for failure.

    An unpublished Home Office report showed that Britons could be more at risk of terrorism and crime after Brexit, The Times reports.

    Theresa May was Home Secretary when this report was drawn up - she must now explain why she did not publish it ahead of the EU referendum. She must also explain why she has since claimed Brexit would not lead to reduced security cooperation when this Government report suggests otherwise.

    The government has released its latest Brexit position paper on the role of the EU Court of Justice (ECJ) after Brexit.

    We welcome this sensible and long overdue climbdown by the Prime Minister. It shows Theresa May's red lines are becoming more blurred by the day.

    The government seems to have belatedly accepted it won't be possible to end the EU court's influence in the UK without damaging our free trade and security cooperation with Europe.

    British officials have admitted it will become harder to recover children abducted and taken out of the country by a parent if no Brexit deal is struck with the EU.

    The comments come as the Government publishes its latest Brexit negotiating paper on judicial cooperation after Brexit, including proposals to end the direct jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice in the UK.

    Only 17 per cent of council leaders are women

    Newly-devolved powers are being consolidated among white middle-aged men because local government is more than 3,000 female councillors short of a 50-50 gender balance, a think-tank has said.

    Just a third of councillors (33 per cent) are women and fewer than one in five (17 per cent) council leaders are female, the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) analysis showed.

    The format of education hasn't really changed since Victorian times. Students are still packed into a classroom with a teacher who spends most of their time doing some variation of lecturing to the students, before they then apply whatever they've just heard to some real examples. This system treats everyone equally by treating pretty much everyone the same, using the same techniques and the same curriculum for everyone, regardless of their differences. Liberal Democrats tend to challenge traditional policies, and should challenge the current educational system too. We also tend to look solely to teachers for educational policy but it is also worth listening to the perspective of students.

    The Liberal Democrats have warned that the government's promise to recruit 5,000 more GPs "lies in tatters," after figures showed the number of GPs remains below that in September 2015.

    The number of full-time equivalent GPs reached 34,242 in June this year, provisional figures from NHS Digital have shown.

    For once, sense seems to have prevailed in the White House.

    But to succeed in Afghanistan will require winning the hearts and minds of its people and working closely with neighbouring countries.

    On that front, Donald Trump has already done untold damage through his proposed refugee ban, Islamophobic comments and cack-handed approach to foreign affairs.

    This weekend, Grantham, our largest town, was in the news twiceโ€ฆ. and for all the wrong reasons.

    First came the shocking images of the National Front march through Grantham on Saturday, which made the national newspapers. Estimates vary of the number of alt-right supporters there - and some claimed that many were not local. But their rally was met by a counter-demonstration by Unite Against Fascism, and violence flared. Police managed to regain control and 2 people were arrested, but there was significant disruption to High Street traffic, and shoppers were warned to hide in shops for their own safety.

    I'm backing George Osborne in the row with Theresa May over HS3. He's accused her advisers of trying to bury the Northern Powerhouse.

    Cities like Manchester, Newcastle, Leeds, Liverpool and Hull need to grow and become stronger.

    George Osborne

    George Osborne is absolutely right to call out the prime minister for starving the North of investment in its railways. It is a priority for the economy of the North of England that it has a good trans-Pennine rail route.

    Each Brexit paper the government releases leaves us with more questions than answers. Even Brussels must have had enough of this waffle by now.

    Why are ministers hell-bent on ripping up this system and plunging British citizens abroad and EU citizens here into uncertainty?

    The government have released their latest Brexit position paper on civil judicial cooperation.

    David Davis is sowing the seeds of more chaos with these short-sighted and short-termist plans.

    British businesses are being hung out to dry, with no long-term certainty they'll be able to carry on selling goods freely to the EU. Meanwhile the trade in services that provides the bedrock of the UK economy is being overlooked.

    Nothing would provide businesses and consumers with more certainty than staying in the Single Market and Customs Union. That is the option this government should be pursuing if it was serious about protecting jobs and free trade.

    Useful advice from Laura Packard:

    With all social media websites, even ones that don't filter, the flow of new content is so steady that your information may be quickly washed away. This is why it is critical to always be using social media to capture more email addresses - then you can reach your entire intended audience, and control the flow of communication to your supporters.

    Sir Paul Jenkins has called Theresa May's Brexit strategy 'foolish' for hoping to distance the UK from the European Court of Justice whilst maintaining the benefits of the single market.

    If the UK is to be part of something close enough to a customs union or the single market to remove the need for hard borders, it will only work if the rules are identical to the EU's own internal rules.
