    NEWLY ELECTED EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT
    Met for the first time this month in Strasbourg.

    My First Day Back:

    Being back is like returning to a school after being sent away for failing the exams. The buildings are the same but 60% of the other kids are new. I find I'm looked upon as the kind of father figure, being the longest serving MEP in the whole of Europe.

    In the UK currently seven million people are carers. That is one in ten people and the figure is only rising as demographics change and people live longer with more disabilities and illnesses.

    Three in five of us will be carers at one point or another in our lives.

    That is why it is so important this week, Carers Week, that we understand and recognise the contribution carers make to society.

    I'm running to be Leader of the Liberal Democrats - but your choice could be about far more than simply who leads our Party.

    The tectonic plates of British Politics are shifting, and its the most volatile I have seen it in my lifetime. With the Liberal Democrats on 20% in the polls, two main Parties crumbling from the inside, and a re-alignment of political allegiances across the country, we have a golden opportunity to cement our place as the leading force of Remain.

    This month is Pride month. This year, June is also 50 years on from the pivotal Stonewall riots. We've come a long way, yet still couples in Northern Ireland are still denied the right to marry the person that they love.

    Internationally, huge progress has been made when it comes to the rights and freedoms of LGBT+ people. Just this summer, Taiwan became the first place in Asia to legalise same-sex marriage while Botswana decriminalised homosexuality in a landmark ruling. But we still have so far to go. In the UK many LGBT+ people still face a grim reality in which discrimination, both socially and in the eyes of the law, blights their everyday reality. The shocking image of a young lesbian couple covered in blood having been subjected to violence on a bus in London this month was a stark reminder that bigotry and prejudice persist.
