    This morning, the Office for National Statistics published a shocking set of figures. They show that 726 homeless people died in 2018 - a 22% increase since 2017.

    This is an epidemic that is claiming far too many lives, and the Conservative Government is completely failing to get to grips with it.

    We've got some great news - Luciana Berger will be standing to be the next Liberal Democrat MP for Finchley and Golder's Green!

    Luciana had this to say:

    "It has been an enormous privilege to have served as the MP for Liverpool Wavertree for almost ten years.

    I cannot thank my constituents enough for the relationship we have grown over the last decade and what we have achieved together."

    We've done it. Parliament is open again.

    At the Supreme Court, we defeated Boris Johnson's illegal attempt to silence the will of the people.

    The message is clear. Boris Johnson cannot undo democracy.

    We need to do this because we can't trust the Prime Minister to obey the law.

    So what happens next? Today, Lib Dem MPs are back in Parliament to hold the government to account. Our priority is clear - we're going to stop Brexit.

    1. Corbyn's campaigning

    To say Jeremy Corbyn's campaigning efforts in the 2016 EU referendum were lacklustre would be putting it very generously.

    Despite certain Labour figures claiming that they were a 'Remain party', voters were kept in the dark about their real stance, with Corbyn famously labelling his enthusiasm for staying in the EU as a "seven, or seven and a half out of 10".

    The Supreme Court has made it's ruling - the prorogation of Parliament was illegal.

    MPs should be allowed to scrutinise the Government without having their voices silenced. This is the basis for our democracy.

    The Conservatives' authoritarian power grab wasn't just illegal, it was downright wrong.

    The Conservatives' authoritarian power grab wasn't just illegal, it was downright wrong. Parliament - not the Government - is sovereign, and this cynical attempt to stop MPs from doing their job was simply outrageous.

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."
