    Today, we're launching our EU manifesto. We're running our campaign on a clear message - a vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to stop Brexit.

    We were the first to call for a People's Vote in 2016 - and we haven't stopped fighting for it, nearly 3 years later. We want Britain to remain in the EU because it's best for our economy, our public services and best for the environment.

    Brexit is a national embarrassment.

    And while they're trying to keep their position on Brexit as vague as possible, Labour has aided the Tories in pushing it through every step of the way. They're a pro-Brexit party.

    In fact, we did some digging. The Labour whip has instructed parliamentarians to abstain or vote with the Tory government on 28 Brexit votes. These include:

    1. We're the party of Remain

    With over 100,000 members and supporters, we're the largest group in the country fighting to Stop Brexit and Remain in the EU.

    We're growing fast, too - more than 2,000 more members have joined us since the local elections alone.

    We've been fighting Brexit for the past three years. We've consistently called for a People's Vote and campaigned up and down the country to remain in the EU.

    Ramadan (or Ramzan) is the ninth month in the Islamic Calendar and this year will start around the 5th May and will end around the 4th June.

    Ramadan lasts for 29 or 30 days depending on the sighting of the moon. During this period, Muslims fast from dawn until sunset, meaning they do not consume food or drink and abstain from smoking and sexual relations.

    Did you see the local election results last week? We absolutely smashed it. 1351 new and returning Lib Dem councillors won seats - that's over 700 more than 2015. We now have a real opportunity to convert that momentum into EU Parliament seats - will you come along and help us do that?

    We're hosting a series of phonebanking events at Lib Dem HQ over the next 3 weeks. You don't need any experience - just come along with your own laptop/tablet and phone if you have them (we can provide if you don't) and we'll walk you through the rest:

    The Liberal Democrats made 703 gains in last week's local elections - our best results ever. Given our nearly 3 years of campaigning for a People's Vote, if you were Labour or the Tories, what Brexit lesson would you take from that?

    I'm going to guess it wouldn't be "push Brexit through faster". And yet, losing nearly 1500 seats between them, that's exactly what they're trying to do. What?

    Who's eligible?

    The Liberal Democrats are THE voice for all those who wish the UK to remain a member of the EU.

    You're eligible to vote in the elections if you're a UK resident over 18 by polling day, and either:

    Just three short weeks has passed since the European Union granted the UK a Brexit extension (a "Brextension", if you will). The new cliff edge will fall on the rather spooky date of 31st October - whether the leaders of the EU27 were giggling when they suggested this is not known.

    Parliament here in the UK has responded by taking its foot off the pedal, as MPs dispersed for their Easter holidays. Indeed, the Prime Minister seems to have had a lovely time schlepping around the Welsh countryside.

    Great results for the Broadland Liberal Democrats in the 2019 local elections as the number of our councillors rises from 4 to 12!

    The Liberal Democrats held Aylsham, Spixworth and Buxton whilst gaining in Taverham North, Hellesdon South East, Hevingham, Horsford and Felthorpe and Reepham.

    Steve Riley, Liberal Democrat leader at Broadland District Council and freshly re-elected councillor for Aylsham, said "We are delighted with our result and have hope that we can improve upon that if there are any by-elections."
