    Coronavirus has changed the world we know in so many ways and has highlighted many problems within British society.

    As Liberal Democrats, we've always looked to the future with hope to build a better world - and we want you to be part of crafting our vision for the world after Coronavirus.

    We've launched an exciting new member project - PolicyLab. It's a crowdsourcing forum where members and registered supporters can share their ideas and debate key topics, all within a safe and constructive environment.

    This year marks the 72nd birthday of the NHS.

    The idea, conceived by a liberal - William Beveridge - transformed healthcare in this country. And as a nation, we have been rightly proud of the NHS for 72 years.

    This year we haven't just felt proud however - we have also felt profoundly grateful. Our NHS staff have been incredible.

    Labour's Elected Mayor said this morning 'that he didn't know if there was an issue in Leicester or not'
    Simple answer is he's not fit for the job and he must resign.
    Over the last few weeks Leicester has seen a spike in cases of Covid 19 - most shocking is this is against a backdrop of falling cases across the country - despite this rise in cases in Leicester the labour council leader is still unable to recognise there is an issue.
    The level of complacency from the city mayor is outrageous.
    Maybe if the labour mayor had spent, less time breaking the lockdown laws then the City might be in a much better position in terms of handling this crisis.
    The Labour Mayor's not fit for the job and he must resign.

    Every year, I spend this day thinking about my dad who fought in Burma during the Second World War.

    Each and every one of us has a connection to the Armed Forces - even if you don't have a family member who served in the past, or who serves now, I can safely say that you will have benefited from the Forces' commitment to our safety.

    It's been a month since the murder of George Floyd. His death has sparked a global conversation about the discrimination faced by black people every day.

    Other times, you struggle to find words to explain the deep hurt, so you stay silent.

    Black women have had to deal with both gender and racial discrimination all their lives. To us, the current discussion is nothing new; it is our everyday experience, often only discussed when amongst your black friends. These forums are where we talk about the constant policing and judgement of everything from our hair, our clothes, our body and of course, the tone of our voice. Dealing with microaggressions (covert, subtle slights which demean, belittle and ridicule marginalised groups) is normal for us. The list is endless; from being mistaken for another black woman at work and at Party Conference, to being told "you're pretty... for a dark-skinned woman" or that you should stand for election in a posh area because "you speak quite well".

    It's been four years since the EU referendum and the UK has left the EU.

    Liberal Democrats are passionately pro-European and while this is a hard pill to swallow for many of us, the issues now at hand are not about Leave or Remain.

    It is unthinkable that the government would rush through a half-heated deal, or worse get no deal at all.

    Yesterday the Prime Minister announced that the Foreign Office and Department for International Development are set to merge.

    By working internationally we can achieve so much more than we can alone.

    The Liberal Democrats have always made absolutely clear our unequivocal support for Britain's role as a world leader in providing aid to those most in need.

    World Refugee Day is an important reminder that we must do all we can to protect people forced to flee their homes to escape war and persecution.

    People who've come to the UK having fled war or persecution should be welcomed with compassion and enabled to contribute to our society.

    The UK has a proud history of providing sanctuary to those in need, but now the Conservative Government is turning its back on refugees and failing to live up to our obligations to them.
