    Last night, the People's Vote option got more support from MPs than any other option.

    When MPs get the chance to vote on it again, I want to make sure it passes with a majority.

    We've asked you to help us by contacting MPs to persuade them to back a People's Vote in the past.

    You responded in your thousands.

    Last night, the Liberal Democrats could have delivered Brexit.

    True, it would have been a 'softer' version of Brexit than Theresa May is pursuing. But it would still be a Brexit that stopped the free movement of people, a Brexit which made us rule takers but not rule makers and a Brexit that does nothing to protect 80% of our economy.

    Last week's damning report from the Chief Inspector of Probation makes it clear. We need a radically new approach to rehabilitation.

    The primary purpose of our penal system should be to prevent crime by rehabilitating offenders. Right now, it's failing.

    Prisons are overcrowded and understaffed. Violence, riots, drug use, self-harm and suicide are all far too common.

    Edinburgh West MP, Christine Jardine, has today slammed the Government for its failure to appoint a new Disabilities Minister until Brexit has been dealt with.

    The previous minister, Sarah Newton MP, quit her post more than two weeks ago, but yesterday it was confirmed that Theresa May would hold off on filling the role until the Brexit impasse has been resolved.

    Nigel Farage must be fuming.

    Today was supposed to be his day of victory, but it's a damp squib. Thanks to almost 3 years of Lib Dems fighting, we've pushed Brexit back until at least the middle of next month.

    And we're not stopping there - we have the momentum. A People's Vote gets closer by the day.

    Most people meet and get married within a few years, but not us. We got married on our twentieth anniversary. We had to wait 20 years before we could tie the knot, not because we didn't want to, but because to do so before 2014 would have been unlawful.

    Brexit Latest

    This week parliament moved into the uncharted territory of 'taking back control' from an arrogant and incompetent executive. Apart from making an unholy mess of Brexit, Ministers have operated for far too long as though the sole purpose of government is to serve the Conservative Party. The absence of a majority finally came to bite them as the Commons wrested control of the business.
