Lucy Nethsingha & North East Cambs Lib Dems

North East Cambridgeshire Liberal Democrats would like to thank everyone who supported them in recent county council and mayoral elections. In the inaugural Cambridgeshire and Peterborough mayoral election the Liberal Democrats finished second. In the county council elections we increased the size of our county council group and remain the largest opposition party. There are no Labour or UKIP councillors on either Fenland or East Cambs District Councils and no Labour or UKIP councillors in either Fenland or East Cambs district areas. Only the Liberal Democrats can challenge the Conservatives locally.

Around 20,000 people joined the Liberal Democrats nationally after the 2015 General Election and more than 30,000 more have joined since the EU referendum in June 2016 to take membership to over 100,000 nationally.

    Its findings show that under WTO rules, the average household would see price rises worth an extra £260 a year, while over three million families would see price rises of over £500 a year.

    The report finds that low-income households would face the biggest cost pressure.

    Vince Cable said:

    "News of this massive write-down shows our economy is in real trouble. Jobs are being lost at major employers such as Vauxhall and BAE, the pound has already lost 20% of its value in a year, our balance of trade and productivity are poor, and we have fallen to the bottom of the growth league for major economies.

    "The Lib Dems will work with any party to stop a 'No Deal' scenario and would vote against a No Deal outcome in Parliament. 'No Deal' would mean ports at a standstill with ferries unable to unload and load, aircraft stranded at airports and manufacturers operating 'Just in Time' production reduced to 'Never on Time'.

    I am proud to lend my support to National Hate Crime Awareness Week, which serves as an important reminder that the tenets of hate, division and prejudice have no place in 21st century Britain.

    Everyone has the right to be who they are, without fear of abuse, intimidation or violence. Our nation is a rich tapestry of different identities and the mosaic of people that make up our communities is to be praised and celebrated. It is our duty to ensure that every person, regardless of race, religion, sex, sexuality, nationality, age or disability, is treated with the dignity and respect they deserve. We must destroy the toxic, far-right rhetoric, which does nothing but divide our communities; such views are entirely incompatible with the core values of our country.

    "This is yet another example of Trump's boneheaded belligerence.

    "Not content with senseless responses to every provocation of Kim Jong Un, he is determinedly undermining a treaty which has proved to be an important influence on nuclear non-proliferation.

    "Every time Trump opens his mouth, the world becomes a less safe place."

    This government's internal battles are weakening their hand in Europe. Every report of a Cabinet split destabilises our negotiating team and strengthens the position of the EU negotiators.

    There is a chronic lack of anything positive coming out of these talks. Both sides share blame for the deadlock and both sides will be harmed if Britain crashes out of the EU with no deal.

    But there is a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel with Tusk's suggestion of possible trade talks in December. This is the signal for the UK government to make a convincing offer on EU citizens' rights, the financial settlement and provide clarity over the Northern Ireland border.

    I have just appointed my first team of principal spokespeople since becoming leader this summer.

    I am fortunate to lead such a great, gender-balanced team, which is comprised of the most talented and promising politicians in the House of Commons and battle-hardened, experienced campaigners.

    The team includes notable strength in depth on the economy, foreign affairs and local government at a time when the impact of Brexit, social inequality and lack of investment is fostering tensions in these areas.

    "This is not yet a decision but it soon could be, if the government is allowed to get away with cuts which would betray the best traditions of our past and damage our ability to defend ourselves in the future.

    "It is time for those who value Britain's contribution, both nationally and internationally, to the preservation of peace to make sure this disastrous decision is never allowed to be taken."

    "This was the speech of a brave Prime Minister struggling on, while her disloyal Cabinet colleagues openly plot against her.

    "Rows over Brexit have left Theresa May only able to tinker around the edges of the great challenges the country faces, from the housing crisis to the future of the NHS.


    "The conference season has shown both the Conservatives and Labour are bitterly divided, with the more moderate factions overwhelmed by their ideological extremes.
