    This week NHS England released statistics on the NHS's key performance measures - and they are abysmal.

    Almost 1 in 5 patients attending A&E in England were not treated or admitted within four hours. This is the worst performance ever recorded since the target was introduced in 2004.

    Meanwhile, just 76.9% of cancer patients are starting their treatment within target waiting times. And only 85% of patients referred for non-urgent treatment were seen within 18 weeks.

    Hate crimes against trans people have gone up by 81% in the UK.

    This Transgender Awareness Week, we must reflect on how much further we must go.

    The profile of trans issues is higher than it ever has been, yet we are no closer to trans people being treated as equals.

    Our system is ill-equipped to meet the needs of those who are transitioning. It is a long, arduous and expensive process.

    A Liberal Democrat government will plant 60 million trees every year, increasing UK forest cover by 1 million hectares by 2045.

    The climate emergency is destroying our natural environment and threatening our children's futures. It's clear that the Conservative Party doesn't take climate change seriously.

    It was a pleasure to be in Leeds today to give my keynote speech as Lib Dem Shadow Chancellor.

    Things need to change. Too many people can't live a secure, happy and fulfilling life. And too many businesses face crippling uncertainty over their future.

    The economic debate in this election has been between two fantasies. Between Conservative fantasies of the days of empire or Labour fantasies of failed '70s socialism. Both Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn will only take our country backwards.

    We have always been fierce advocates for human rights. We believe in a Britain where nobody has to fear discrimination. A Liberal Democrat government will put equality at the heart of society and the workplace.

    We've announced a huge raft of policies on rights and equalities. They are our blueprint for a government that respects the rights of the individual. This will be our foundation for a society where dignity, privacy and equality are valued.

    No one should live in fear of harassment or physical violence.

    Trans Awareness Week is a time dedicated to celebrating trans and gender non-conforming people.

    It is also an important opportunity. We must bring attention to the continued injustices and inequalities faced by trans people today

    The week will culminate in the Trans Day of Remembrance. This is a day to honour those who have either been killed or have taken their own lives as a result of transphobia. As we pause to we remember the lives lost, we are reminded that transphobia is never funny or trivial. It can be fatal.

    The Liberal Democrats believe that in 21st century Britain, none of us should need to fear discrimination.

    We don't know about you but we had a wild Saturday night!

    Our leader Jo Swinson kicked off her election tour of the UK with a supporter's rally in Battersea. We're taking the fight across the country - starting last week with our plan for a brighter future.

    Jo led by paying tribute to the many young people in the room and pledged to fight to leave behind a better world:

Lewis North has been chosen to be your Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Meon Valley at the next election.
Having grown up here, gone to local schools, and worked in local businesses, Lewis knows how to not only protect our local area, but allow it to develop and flourish.

Lewis, who is 28 years old, grew up in Meon Valley, attended local schools, and has worked for local farms and businesses.
He has lived, worked and studied in Belgium, Germany, Canada and the UK. He now works as an environmental policy advisor for the Environment Agency.


Lewis says, "I love this area and I will fight to give local people the representation they deserve in parliament. For too long our constituency has been neglected by the Conservatives. We need a fresh start and a fresh local face to get things moving forward."
