    Today, we join Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist and Jain communities to celebrate Diwali.

    Across the country, streets will come alive with dazzling light displays and homes will be adorned with extravagant decorations, all to mark the festival of lights.

    As families and loved ones gather to celebrate the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness, let us all hold on to Diwali's central message of joy, community and new beginnings. Our country's strength lies in the rich diversity of its people and it is our duty to create an environment where people of all faiths, beliefs and worldviews are welcomed and embraced.

    Moments ago, voting opened in the elections for Party President, and Federal Committees (including English, Scottish and Councillor Representatives).

    Yesterday, I visited the (very secure) printer in Scunthorpe where the 13,000 postal ballots are being printed and I'm happy to confirm everything is very much on track and I've spent the morning triple checking the online ballot and emails.

    I chair the all-party parliamentary group on bullying. We focus on helping young people and we know many schools now use the THINK acronym to teach good communication (Is it True; Is it Helpful; Is it Inspiring; Is it Necessary; Is it Kind?).

    As a party, I think we need our own version of THINK:

    The Liberal Democrats have always understood that without thriving businesses and motivated entrepreneurs, we would not have the wealth-creation, innovation, or international standing to create the free and fair society we all want.

    The Liberal Democrats are clear - we can stop Brexit.

    Tonight, Remainers all over the country will be feeling dishearted with the vote in Parliament. We want to let them know that they are not alone.

    Will you help us spread the word?

    We need you to flood social media to let fellow Remainers know they are not alone.

    Q: What is the President's main role?

    A: Each Party President gets to carve out their role. The only stipulation the Lib Dem constitution gives is that:

    "The President shall be the principal public representative of the Party and shall chair the Federal Board."

    Apart from the Chairing of the Federal Board, there are no constraints on the role of the Party President.

    The NHS is in crisis, but Labour care more about theoretical restructures than listening to doctors and nurses about what it really needs: funding for front line-services, not another reorganisation.

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.
