    Commenting on the news that the majority of Labour MPs have said they have no confidence in Jeremy Corbyn, Liberal Democrat President Sal Brinton said:

    "At a moment when politicians must stand up and put aside tribal interests and put the nation first Labour have failed to meet that challenge.

    "Labour are imploding. Whilst Corbyn's MPs have voted for him to leave and for them to take control, he plans to limp on.

    Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has pledged to fight the next General Election on a platform taking Britain back into Europe.

    Since Britain voted for Brexit on Thursday thousands of people have joined the Liberal Democrats.

    Tim Farron has now said that in any upcoming national election he will promise to rejoin the European Union.

    The economic uncertainty will affect jobs, people's homes and livelihoods.

    The Liberal Democrats accept the result of the referendum but plan to make the case for us to rejoin the heart of Europe.

    Tim Farron said:

    "For many millions of people, this was not just a vote about Europe. It was a howl of anger at politicians and institutions who they felt they were out of touch and had let them down.

    "The British people deserve the chance not to be stuck with the appalling consequences of a Leave campaign that stoked that anger with the lies of Farage, Johnson and Gove.

    "The Liberal Democrats will fight the next election on a clear promise to restore British prosperity and role in the world, with the UK in the European Union, not out.

    I am devastated and I am angry. Today we woke to a deeply divided country.

    Nigel Farage's vision for Britain has won this vote, but it is not a vision I accept.

    An institution that we built, that delivered peace, that promoted equality, kept us safe and opened the doors of opportunity, will no longer play part of Britain's future.

    Dear Friend,

    This morning with my kids all I could think about was the family who've woken up with their lives changed forever.

    Yesterday a mum, who left home to do her job to serve her constituents, was cruelly and brutally taken from them. Her husband and their children are in my thoughts and prayers.

    A Response to the recently released District and City Proposals for Unitary Government in Oxfordshire

    The Liberal Democrats are determined to push for a careful consideration of the reports on Unitary Government in Oxfordshire which will be available in the next two months. The Tory controlled Districts and the Labour controlled City should not be trying to skew the results before we have the evidence of the reports. If the Districts and City have already decided their position, why are they spending large sums of public money on an "independent" report and ignoring the views of Oxfordshire residents. What sort of democracy is this? Let's get the evidence, then have an adult conversation with all the ratepayers we serve before we form any conclusions.

    Commenting on the allegations of abuse by Clement Freud, a Liberal Democrat spokesperson said:

    "These allegations are horrific. We are desperately sorry to learn that lives have been ruined by a man whose public face was so greatly at odds to his true character. It has clearly taken a lot of courage for these women to speak out, after a lifetime of having to hide it.
