    Letting fees are an unfair cost pushed onto tenants by greedy landlords.

    Today a bill to abolish letting fees achieved third reading in the House of Commons and I spoke in favour of the bill

    The leading cause of homelessness is the ending of a private rented sector tenancy. Whilst rental costs continue to spiral, people are becoming trapped: they cannot afford their rent and they cannot afford to move somewhere more affordable as a result of the myriad of administrative fees.

    In an interview with The Guardian, I set out our ambitious plan to fix the UK's broken immigration system, end the Conservatives' hostile environment and celebrate the positive impact immigration has had on the United Kingdom.

    Our policy paper, A Fair Deal for Everyone: Prosperity and Dignity in Migration, will be debated this month in Brighton. It calls for a new right to work for refugees and asylum seekers, major reform of the Home Office - giving control of work permit policy to the Business Department and student visa policy to the Education Department, policies to make family reunification easier and scrapping the net migration target.

    Over the weekend, member Ruby Chow started a thread on Twitter asking Lib Dems who the top ten most important people in the party were to them.

    What followed was a thread full of love for Lib Dems across the country who have encouraged, supported or inspired others.

    Some members named MPs and Lords that inspired them the most:

  • Vince Cable in Twickenham

    The report - "Taxing Land, Not Investment" - calls for the abolition of business rates and its replacement with a tax on land values, the Commercial Landowner Levy (CLL). The levy would remove buildings and machinery from calculations and tax only the land value of commercial sites, boosting investment and cutting taxes for businesses in nine out of ten English local authorities.

  • The union flag flying next to the EU flag.

    The Government have refused to guarantee that MPs will see the full impact analysis of a no-deal Brexit before the final vote on departure from the EU.

    The Government are clearly losing the plot.

    Refusing to show MPs the full damage a no-deal Brexit would inflict on our country makes a mockery of the discredited mantra 'Taking Back Control'.

    Our Exit from Brexit Summer Campaign is in full swing. Across the country, Liberal Democrats have been speaking to voters in their area about how disastrous Brexit is going to be.

    In a speech today the Brexit Secretary set out the no-deal Brexit papers.

    No one will be surprised that the Brexit Secretary was hot and flustered today. What he set out means a disaster for British families and British jobs.

    We also have yet further confirmation that there is no prospect that a plan will be delivered in the next six months, not least on the Northern Ireland border and post-Brexit customs arrangements.

  • Jeremy Corbyn.
    Article: Aug 23, 2018

    Yesterday, I sent you a video of Corbyn refusing to answer a question about whether we would be better off after Brexit five times.

    Already this has been seen fifty thousand times on Facebook thanks to you all sharing it online - and with no sign of it slowing down.

    You can watch it yourself here:

    More than 7 in 10 Labour voters want to have a vote on the final deal that Theresa May has put together - with an option to stay in the EU.

  • Sal Brinton speaking at Lib Dem conference.
    Article: Aug 15, 2018

    It may be mid-August but the bad news about Brexit is increasing by the day! Senior Brexiteers such as Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg continue to peddle their populist nonsense, against the facts: the pound dropping against the Euro; international organisations moving their EU HQ out of Britain; and even the Governor of the Bank of England confirming Brexit will not be good for the economy. Only Vince Cable and the Lib Dems remain totally committed to an Exit from Brexit, and giving the people a Final Say on the deal, with more regions that voted leave now changing their minds.

  • Article: Aug 14, 2018

    The last ten days have seen major stories of racism in both of Britain's major parties.

    What is happening in the Labour party - and Boris Johnson's comments this week - are frightening to many Jewish and Muslim people living in Britain.

    This is a reflection of the way the politics of identity dominates politics today and attracts comments, sometimes critical or offensive, about particular groups.
