    The NHS is the envy of the world, but our mental health service is not. Waiting times are being missed, people are not being referred for the treatment they need, and often action is taken only when at 'crisis' point, or too late.

    That's why the Liberal Democrats are dedicated to transforming mental health services by treating them with the same urgency as physical health.

    Today, we're kicking off the Liberal Democrats' Plan for the Future.

    At our general election campaign launch, leader Jo Swinson has declared that a Liberal Democrat government will Stop Brexit and use the £50 billion Remain Bonus to invest in public services and tackle inequality.

    This £50 billion injection to the areas that need it most can only be delivered by a Lib Dem government - we are the only party standing up to stop Brexit.

    Brexit has fundamentally rewritten the structure and shape of our politics.

    Today, we join Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist and Jain communities to celebrate Diwali.

    Across the country, streets will come alive with dazzling light displays and homes will be adorned with extravagant decorations, all to mark the festival of lights.

    As families and loved ones gather to celebrate the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness, let us all hold on to Diwali's central message of joy, community and new beginnings. Our country's strength lies in the rich diversity of its people and it is our duty to create an environment where people of all faiths, beliefs and worldviews are welcomed and embraced.
