    LibDem Leadership Green Hustings from 28 July 2020

    Some GLD members support Ed, some support Layla, either will make a great leader for the party and be able to outmatch Boris Johnson in the Commons

    As leadership voting opened this week POLITICO sent both contenders 'quick-fire' questions including " Should the UK rejoin the EU?"

    On that Ed replied: "I'll always believe our best place is in the EU, but our job now is to convince the country of that. If the opportunity ever arises for us to rejoin, and we can take the public with us, I'll be at the frontline of that fight."

    As the Liberal Democrat spokesperson for political and constitutional reform, the whole focus of my approach is trying to demonstrate the positive change which reforms can have. Our arguments are often too theoretical. They fail to meet people where they're at. If we cannot couch the case for a different voting system in terms of how it impacts people's lives, then I think we will continue to preach to the converted only.

    Dr Carol Weaver, Liberal Democrat Spokesperson in the area, has called on local MPs Alicia Kearns and Neil O'Brien to "pledge to defend the rule of law against any attempts by Boris Johnson and Dominic Cummings to undermine it."
    It follows the Conservative Government's announcement of an Independent Review of Administrative Law, with the aim of restricting the ability of individuals to seek judicial review of government actions.

    This could prevent people challenging the Government in the courts, as they did when the Ministry of Defence sent soldiers into combat in Iraq without the proper equipment; when excessive Home Office fees denied children their rights as citizens; and when patients died from substandard care at Stafford Hospital.

    Rutland & Melton Liberal Democrats say:

    "With these plans, Boris Johnson and Dominic Cummings are trying to enable the Government to run roughshod over people's rights and allow Ministers to break the law with impunity.

    "This should be incredibly alarming, no matter your political persuasion. Our local MPs must put party politics aside and pledge to defend the rule of law against any attempts by Johnson and Cummings to undermine it."

    Daisy Cooper, Liberal Democrat Justice Spokesperson, says:

    "Threatening to weaken people's ability to challenge the Government because the courts sometimes rule against you is the act of dictators and despots, not democrats.

    "Liberal Democrats will always defend individuals' abilities to challenge the Government and uphold their rights. We will not stand by and allow Boris Johnson and Dominic Cummings to undermine the rule of law, which is so fundamental to our society."

    The Party has considered carefully and has taken representations from the Campaign.

    What are the Liberal Democrats calling for?

    We're calling on the Government to grant indefinite leave to remain in the UK - the right to stay - to all foreign nationals currently working in the NHS and social care, and their families.

    How many people from other countries work in the NHS and social care?

    Throughout this crisis, the Government's communications have been an utter disaster.

    Yet more mistakes reveal how necessary it is for an inquiry to be launched now

    To announce a regional lockdown of millions of people not only just hours before it's enforced, but with no clarity on the new rules coming into place, is beyond comprehension.

    On behalf of the Liberal Democrats, I would like to send best wishes to all Muslims celebrating Eid al-Adha.

    Eid al-Adha commemorates the Prophet Ibrahim's test of faith. It also marks the end of Hajj, the Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca.

    I hope that all of us will take this opportunity to reflect on those values of selflessness, charity and community which are at the heart of Islam

    Let's be honest with ourselves - we're in a tough spot. Our average polling figure currently stands at 8%, a far cry from the late teens or early 20s we previously enjoyed as recently as last year.

    I won Oxford West & Abingdon from the ground up. Nobody knows the potential of Liberal Democrat activists like I do.
