    Make no mistake: there is something that the architects of Brexit are desperately trying to distract us from.

    Our planet is in crisis, balanced on a knife-edge at the point of no return.

    Our planet is in crisis, balanced on a knife-edge at the point of no return.

    Due to man-made climate change, global temperatures are soaring, the polar ice caps are melting faster than ever before, and whole nations are already facing the existential crisis of rising sea levels and extreme weather. Whole species of animals are being wiped out month by month, and global famine is a very real threat.

    Vince began by thanking everyone who had helped him during his time as leader, and saying what he'd be doing next:

    "I have fought ten national elections over half a century. I couldn't have done that on my own without the emotional and practical support of my wife Rachel and my late wife Olympia. And without my dedicated team of volunteers in Twickenham and in Parliament led by Dee Doocey."

    Jane started by thanking everyone who came to help in Brecon and Radnorshire...

    Whether you came during the recall petition or the by-election or even both - thank you. Without all of you, and the wider party and beyond, I would not be standing here today as the MP for Brecon & Radnorshire.

    There is nothing more important than education.

    Education opens up opportunities, shows us what we are capable of and challenges our preconceptions. When education is accessible it can be a great equaliser, however with cuts from 2010 then it is no longer fit for purpose.

    Our economy is changing. It is crucial that our education system evolves at the same rate.

    The European Court of Justice ruled that the UK has the power to unilaterally revoke article 50 and withdraw us from the Brexit process.

    Dignity and respect should be at the core of our criminal justice system.

    This is crucial if we are serious about reducing reoffending rates, supporting young people who have grown up in poverty and caring for people with poor mental health.

    No one is born wanting to break the law. And yet, our criminal justice system does far too little to help people build a life free from crime.

    In our country right now, around 6.5million people are classified as carers. And an enormous 700,000 of those are young people. What they do often goes under the radar, but has a huge impact on the people they care for.

    Our health and social health services are at crisis point in the UK.

    They have been at crisis point for years now - and it is a credit to our brilliant healthcare workers that our NHS has continued to take care of millions of us every year

    Well, hello Conference and hasn't everything changed since we last met in March!

    Wow! Just wow! We asked you to all go on the Stop Brexit march on 20 March to make it clear we are the strongest Remain party.

    You did that.

    It was my privilege to help lead thousands and thousands of Liberal Democrats along with Vince Cable at that march that had over a million people on the streets of London.

    Leicester Liberal Democrat members participated in the Leicester Pride on Saturday 31st August.

    Leicester West PPC for the Liberal Democrats, Ian Bradwell, offers his thoughts on the day.

    "Leicester Pride, on Saturday 31st August was a wonderful experience. It was a time when you felt as one. It was absolutely brilliant and brought together a lot of people and regardless of who you are, regardless of your sexuality or disability, it wasn't important; we had a fun time of togetherness.
