    Tim Farron, leader of the Liberal Democrats, has announced that the party has suspended all national campaigning until further notice. Tim was due to fly to Gibraltar today as part of the general election campaign but has cancelled the trip.

    Tim Farron said: "The country is united in grief after this devastating terror attack. Just as the country is focusing all its thoughts on the victims and their families, so politicians should come together in solidarity and respect for the innocent people caught up in this vile attack.

    Following the tragic events in Manchester, the main national political parties have suspended general election campaigning.
    This morning Ed Reynolds has consulted with the other parliamentary candidates for Rutland & Melton and they have agreed that our own local campaigning should also be halted for at least Tuesday, therefore the Churches Together Meeting at All Saints Church Oakham has been cancelled.

    Mark Pack writes today :

    "An updated version of my 'what the Lib Dems believe' digital graphic is now out, and designed for much better compatibility with mobile devices

    - http://www.markpack.org.uk/libdem-beliefs/

    It's designed more for supporters rather than floating voters, as it emphasises what makes us Liberal Democrats rather than our immediate solutions to the most pressing issues of the moment, although Europe etc. of course do get a mention.

    Hope you find it useful!"

    Your Chance to Change Britain's Future

    The Lib Dems want a Britain that is open, tolerant and united.

    Our policies include a second referendum on Brexit, increased money for the NHS, keeping our country green and, as always, keeping education at the heart of our agenda. It was our party that introduced the free lunches that the Tories now want to snatch away. We have always been a party that supported environmental policies such as stopping climate change and fighting against air pollution.

    Move could undermine key Tory target of helping families 'just about managing', as concerns grow over social care pledge

    About 900,000 children from struggling families will lose their right to free school lunches under a cut unveiled in the Conservative manifesto.

    The total includes more than 600,000 young children recently defined as coming from "ordinary working families", according to analysis for the Observer by the Education Policy Institute.

    The Liberal Democrats have reacted after a day in which the upper echelons of the Conservative Party were in lock-down, apparently in panic after their social care policy backfired. The Institute for Fiscal Studies analysed Theresa May's plans and concluded that "the Conservative plan makes no attempt to deal with the fundamental challenge of social care funding."

    Exclusive poll for The Independent shows public - and most Conservative voters - back banning the most-polluting cars from city centres as pressure builds on the Government

    It has been described as a "public health emergency" responsible for tens of thousands of deaths every year, but dozens of local councils have been failing to report on air pollution as required by law for years.

    The Liberal Democrats have today launched a poster attacking Theresa May for adopting Nigel Farage's vision for Brexit.

    Launching the hard hitting poster in Twickenham, Vince Cable slammed Theresa May's plans to rip Britain out of the Single Market and pointed out her extreme agenda was backed by UKIP who are standing down in swathes of seats to back the Tories.

    Liberal Democrat Shadow Chancellor Vince Cable said:

    This week has been about manifestos

    To understand what is going on you have to listen to the voices of the people who are Mrs May's cheerleaders and admirers.

    Nigel Farage. He purrs like an elder statesman, his job done.

    He said of the Prime Minister "she is using exactly the words and phrases I have been using for 20 years. I'm thrilled"

    He should be. She has adopted wholesale the UKIP model of Brexit. No half measures. Out of the Single Market. Out of the customs union. Out of all the sensible cooperation around science and environment. The agenda of the hard right.

    And not just on Europe. Do you remember the man who smiled with President-elect Donald Trump in a gold-encrusted lift? Who used his good offices to secure a meeting for our Prime Minister. Her hand-holding. Backing for the Trump administration. The close bonding. The treat of a state visit to come. Not that it achieved anything. The tough American trade negotiators have made it clear that economic size, not sentiment, determines priorities: the EU before the UK.

    Then, refugees. Nigel Farage posed in front of a poster of Syrian refugees fleeing the war. Spreading fear and distrust. But Mrs May is just as determined to keep foreigners out. Refugees. Students who are not immigrants and help our economy. Essential workers. They all fall under her net immigration target. As George Osborne has reminded us the more thoughtful Conservatives regarded the target as absurd and damaging and she hopelessly failed to meet it in any event. But UKIP is cheering her on.

    Farage is 'thrilled' for her. And that is because he is the architect in chief of her Brexit strategy.

    It didn't have to be like this. She could have taken as her inspiration the most politically successful Conservative Prime Minister in peacetime: Margaret Thatcher. But Mrs Thatcher is the creator of the Single Market.The Four Freedoms. Nothing to do with Brussels and Juncker. A British creation and a fine one which served Britain well. But Mrs May wants to trash her predecessor's legacy.

    And this is more than a meeting of minds with the UKIP hard right. There is an alliance. Not a Progressive but a Regressive Alliance. UKIP are standing down in a third of their seats for the Tories.

    They realise that there is no need for a UKIP candidate when the Conservative will represent them!

    That is what we believe the public should be reminded of until polling day

    Reports today suggest that Brexit negotiations will start on 19 June, 11 days after a historical General Election.

    It is understood that the EU's Chief Negotiator hopes to start by dealing with citizens' rights, the UK's divorce bill and on the border of Ireland.

    Commenting on these reports, Nick Clegg, the Liberal Democrat spokesperson on Brexit said:

    The Lib Dem Manifesto of 2017 gives canvassers plenty to promise on the doorstep, but past achievements can be more convincing. Yet who among canvassers can instantly name three achievements attributable to the Liberal Democrats, against Conservative inclinations, in the Coalition Government of 2010-2015?

    Prime minister will regret move to slash number of primary school children eligible for free meals, says chef

    The celebrity chef and healthy eating campaigner, Jamie Oliver, has attacked the Conservatives over their plans to end free lunches for some of the youngest primary school children.

    Oliver said the "short-sighted" move would prove a mistake in the long run because it would harm children's health and end up costing the country

  • Nick Clegg - Free School Meals
    Article: May 19, 2017
    By Nick Clegg in The Guardian

    The Liberal Democrats pushed for the introduction of free infant school lunches in 2014. This Conservative U-turn cynically targets the vulnerable.

    So much for compassionate Conservatism. So much for helping the "just about managing". During my time as deputy prime minister, I repeatedly blocked the Conservatives from proceeding with tax, welfare, education and pensions policies that did not cater for the neediest in society. I became wearily familiar with the Conservative party's habit of placing greater priority on the needs of "their" voters than those of society at large.

    The Liberal Democrats recently distributed a letter signed by Dr Clare Gerada setting out her view on the challenges facing the NHS.


    Clare absolutely stands by those comments however the letter did contain incorrect details regarding Clare's time at the Royal College of General Practitioners. We thank Clare for publicising her concerns about our NHS and apologise for the drafting error. Here is the correct version of Clare's letter:

    With the announcement of the Conservative manifesto today, Theresa May has shown her true colours. I've scarcely seen a colder, more mean-spirited agenda in my entire career.

    There's no doubt about it: the Nasty party is back. The Tories are hitting families from cradle to grave by snatching school lunches from children and homes from the elderly.

    A couple of weeks ago, in Kidlington near Oxford, I met a guy called Malcolm. I say met…he came up to me in the street and started shouting at me.

    You might have seen it on the news. Or the internet.

    In the end we actually got along. But he was angry with me for not getting behind Theresa May and backing Brexit. I think I calmed him down a bit when we spoke, but I don't think I changed his mind.
