    It's no secret: crime rates in the UK have been rising.

    Brutal knife and gun crimes have become a sad fixture of our headlines, while conviction rates for offences including violent robberies and sexual assaults have experienced an alarming decline.

    Why?

    Since 2015, the Conservatives have cut £1bn from police budgets while resolutely maintaining that falling policing numbers have nothing to do with rising crime.

    Britain's railways are essential to everyday life - they transport millions to and from work and around the country day in, day out.

    Unfortunately, all too often our trains are late, crowded or cancelled. Ticketing is a confusing mess and the railways and their rolling stock are in desperate need of investment.

    Since the EU referendum, the Liberal Democrats have been on the side of Remainers.

    Whether in Parliament, in the courts, in the media or on the streets, we've been leading the fight for three years to stay part of the European Union.

    The power to strip someone of their citizenship is one of the most serious the Home Secretary possesses.

    It should only be taken when absolutely necessary. And only when the national security interest can be proven in court.

    Was Javid's decision to strip Shamima Begum's citizenship about the safety of our country or the advancement of his career?

    Leicester Liberal Democrats express sincere congratulations to previous local party Chair Bernard Greaves who this afternoon was presented with the Liberal Democrats Presidents Award by Party President, Sal Brinton at the Autumn Federal Conference in Bournemouth.

    Bernard has been at the forefront of LGBT+ campaigns for over 50 years and today was recognised for his tireless work. Bernard was at the forefront of putting Gay Rights as a policy in the Liberal Party in the 1970s (the first political party to do so at the time).

    Conference, I don't know about you, but when you knock on doors canvassing, and people say "Oh, you're all the same", it can be quite frustrating.

    Brexit has changed all that. Everyone now knows, we are very different from Johnson's Conservatives and Corbyn's Labour.

    Only the Liberal Democrats want to stop Brexit. Let's face it. Our great country could be just 46 days from economic catastrophe.

    There is something that the architects of Brexit are desperately trying to distract us from.

    Our planet is in crisis, balanced on a knife-edge at the point of no return.

    Our planet is in crisis, balanced on a knife-edge at the point of no return.

    Due to man-made climate change, global temperatures are soaring, the polar ice caps are melting faster than ever before, and whole nations are already facing the existential crisis of rising sea levels and extreme weather. Whole species of animals are being wiped out month by month, and global famine is a very real threat.

    Conference, it is an honour and a pleasure to be addressing you as a Liberal Democrat Member of Parliament and as your Shadow Foreign Secretary.

    From the bottom of my heart, thank you for making me feel so welcome. I could not be more at home in the wonderful Liberal Democrat family.

    The truth is, all the incredibly difficult decisions I have made on the journey I've been on this year were routed in my values and principles. I joined this party out of conviction.
