    Today as we mark the international day for persons with disabilities, I am very aware that one billion people around the world live with a disability - that's roughly 15% of the global population. I am one of them, mainly using a wheelchair and sometimes walking with sticks.

    Climate Change isn't just an environmental problem, it's a human one too.

    Look at our country - and the impact of weather extremes likely linked to climate change. This summer, Manchester's Moorlands were turned into an inferno.

    Across the Atlantic, Trump and his cronies are doing their very best to rewrite the definition of transgender out of existence. An agenda of social cleansing that feeds into his administration's insular and antagonistic narrative. We may like to think that Trump's views are in isolation, that his fear of difference does not seep to our shores, but it does.

    Jeremy Corbyn was asked "If you could stop Brexit, would you?"
    His response?
    "We can't stop it. The referendum took place. Article 50 has been triggered."

    But Brexit can be stopped through a People's Vote

    Vince Cable
