    Vince Cable went to Edinburgh on his tour of the country taking questions from members.

    For 90 minutes, he answered questions on such varying subjects as tackling extremism, Brexit, freedom of movement, the triple lock, opportunities for young people and the fight against climate change.

    He was particularly strong on tackling inter-generational unfairness, social justice and reducing inequality as top priorities.

    David Davis promised us 'the row of the summer' over the Brexit timetable, only to capitulate weeks later to the EU's preferred timetable after a disastrous general election for his party which vastly undermined their negotiating position.

    To be now, a couple of months down the line, trying to reopen the issue reeks of desperation at an approaching economic storm and a cabinet who don't have a clue.

    Lib Dem leader Vince Cable questions UK's commitment to environmental projects after GIB sale to Australian bank Macquarie

    The government is facing renewed criticism after pushing through the "disastrous" sale of the Green Investment Bank (GIB) to the Australian bank Macquarie, as fresh concerns are raised over its commitment to environmental projects.

    A renowned scientist such as Stephen Hawking questioning your evidence might normally be cause to think again, but sadly it looks as though Jeremy Hunt has joined the chorus of those who have had enough of experts.

    Hunt had cherry-picked research to justify his argument. For a scientist, cherry-picking evidence is unacceptable.

    'I think there is more than a possibility that it may never happen'

    Sir Vince Cable has said he still believes there is a "significant possibility" that Brexit will not happen.

    The Liberal Democrat leader told an audience at the Edinburgh International Book Festival that he stood by the view that the UK might not leave the European Union (EU).

    The Government's sale of the Green Investment Bank (GIB), which was completed today, is environmentally irresponsible.

    The Government confirmed today Macquarie Group Limited has now completed its purchase of the GIB for £2.3bn, which will now be known as the Green Investment Group (GIG).

    I launched the Bank in 2012, during my time as Business Secretary. Its environmental mission is now in danger of disappearing, I am calling for Parliament to ensure commitments to protect green investment in the UK are kept.

    Over the summer, we heard that Philip Hammond was courageously fighting off the more extreme Brexiteers. Supposedly he was looking for a compromise to keep Britain within the customs union and single market as long as possible.

    The rebellion didn't last very long. He has now teamed up with one of the more extreme and ideological supporters of a 'Hard Brexit.

    It is now painfully clear who calls the shots in the Cabinet; it isnt' the Chancellor.

    Ministers have privately admitted that the government may not start negotiating Britain's future trade relationship with the EU until the end of the year, it emerged today.

    This comes despite David Davis insisting back in May that talks on a future trade agreement would take place in parallel with negotiation over the UK's withdrawal from the EU.

    The number of patients suffering the indignity of staying in mixed-sex wards soared to 908 in July 2017, more than double the number in the same month last year.

    In total over 9,000 patients were put in a mixed sex ward over the last year, up 55% from the previous year.

    The figures come after a recent official survey found NHS patients are increasingly dissatisfied with levels of privacy, dignity and well-being in hospital.

    The Liberal Democrats have called on Theresa May to recommit to ending mixed-sex hospital wards, after the Conservative Party's longstanding pledge to end the practice was dropped from its 2017 Manifesto.

    Under Theresa May's watch, we've seen a scandalous rise in the number of patients being forced to stay in mixed-sex wards.

    Men and women shouldn't have to share hospital wards, it's an affront to basic human dignity.

    It's time to end the the continued underfunding of the NHS and care that is putting intolerable pressure on services and leading to these sorts of failures.

    The Conservatives once pledged to end mixed-sex wards, now it seems they've given up.

    ALDC are recruiting the 2017 group for the ALDC's Future Leaders programme at our November Kickstart and are asking could you be a leader in your area?

    Whether you are standing for election next May, a key member of the core campaign team in your local constituency and ultimately looking to be a leader in your area, this could be the ideal opportunity for you.

    Many residents have contacted me with road concerns. I was warned before the election that roads would take a lot of my time! The list goes on and on: potholes, drainage, dips in the road, worn surfaces, pavements, kerbs, broken bollards, street-lighting, etc.

    Is it worth my time? Yes. Getting a pavement cleared so that a mum with a pushchair can get through makes a difference. Getting a cycle route tidied of overgrown hedge keeps cyclists on the cycle path and safe. Working for new street-lighting protects young people as they walk home from school in the winter months. Improving drainage means people can access a recreation ground rather than walking through standing water to the gate.

    The government's plan for the Northern Ireland border after Brexit has more holes in it than a colander.

    It comes after the government admitted EU nationals will still be able to enter the UK from Ireland after Brexit under its plans.

    The government's position paper on Ireland and Northern Ireland states that "it is important to note that immigration controls are not, and never have been, solely about the ability to prevent and control entry at the UK's physical border."

    Alongside tips on household management from Mary Berry and help with home cooking from Nigella Lawson, a different kind of guide is also due to land on bookshop shelves this Christmas: How to Stop Brexit, by the former deputy prime minister Nick Clegg.

    Real wages fell by 0.5% in the three months to June 2017 compared with a year earlier, figures from the Office for National Statistics today have revealed.

    Average weekly earnings increased by 2.1%, but with inflation standing at 2.6% real earnings still fell by 0.5%.

    This is a direct consequence of the higher inflation we have seen since the EU referendum.

    Hardly a day goes by on my social media feeds without some form of the following conversation:

    Commentator/political has been: What we really need is a new moderate centre party in the UK, standing up for all the internationalist, tolerant liberal values that Corbyn and May have abandoned.

    Liberal Democrats: Helloooooo!!!!!
