    The welcome at the Regional Conference was warm and the atmosphere full of hope and commitment. I had the opportunity to chat with so many friends both old and new. Not unexpectedly as we chatted the subject of Brexit was near top of the list.

    Many pointed out that time is running out and that 'B' day - Brexit Day - is very rapidly approaching but as I reminded colleagues, as someone once said..... a week is a long time in politics and there is still time for us to make a real and positive impact.

    This festival of lights signifies the triumph of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance and joy over despair. It is a time of hope and rejuvenation.

    Millions of EU citizens in the UK have been living under a cloud of uncertainty for more than two years. After being quizzed by MPs on two separate occasions, the Immigration Minister has utterly failed to offer them any clarity.

    Tom Bake MP, Jo Swinson MP and Ed Davey MP campaigning for a final say on the Brexit deal

    After months of campaigning by the Lib Dems, the government agreed to secure the rights of EU citizens in the draft EU Withdrawal Agreement. But it is only a draft.

    And last week, the immigration minister told the Home Affairs Select Committee that current UK based EU citizens would be subject to the same immigration checks as new arrivals - with no documentation to prove their status.

    It is inhumane and unacceptable that we are treating EU citizens in this way.

    The Conservative Government is holding millions of lives in limbo - while Ministers fight amongst themselves.

    The Liberal Democrats Demand Better.

    Join our campaign, and help us demand that the government guarantees EU citizens the right to stay in the EU.

    Liberal Democrat MPs Layla Moran and Stephen Lloyd are calling on the Government to create a 'Women's Equality Day' to fall on the Spring Bank Holiday.

    2018 marks the centenary of the extension of suffrage to some women and the 90th anniversary of universal suffrage.

    To mark this, Stephen Lloyd challenged female pupils from Willingdon School in his constituency to come up with a campaign which he could deliver in Westminster on their behalf. The winning idea was to create a Women's Equality Day.

    The result of the EU referendum changed an awful lot: the Prime Minister, the economic outlook, Britain's political discourse and our standing in the world. But there are 3.6 million people whose lives have been affected more than most. These are the citizens of other EU countries who live in the UK.
