    Donald Trump has claimed that the Conservatives' Brexit plan has killed off any chance of a UK-US trade deal.

    Donald Trump is an enemy of Britain. His vile views and wild outbursts make the whole world a more dangerous place.

    Like his terrible twin Boris Johnson he is consumed by self-obsession and self-promotion. And Trump has the cheek to nominate Johnson as our Prime Minister - in return I recommend ABD (anyone but Donald) for President of our American friends and allies.

    Today our MPs had an opposition debate in the House of Commons.

    We asked members and supporters of the Liberal Democrats to vote to decide what our opposition debate would be about: a final say on the Brexit deal, how we will fund the NHS into the future, and Trump's visit to the UK.

    The results of the vote were:

  • Theresa May.

    Theresa May tried to portray strength as her Cabinet decamped to Chequers to review her Brexit plans. Rebels ministers were warned they would lose their official cars if they resigned, with taxis on standby to shuttle the disloyal back to London.

    This was May's moment to bring her Cabinet in line.

    For a moment, it appeared that May had managed to quietly stifle dissent. Then the dam broke.

    Bluntly, David Davis' resignation today makes it clear: this government is up shit creek without a paddle.

    It is obvious to all - Brexiters and Remainers alike - that Theresa May cannot deliver on Brexit.

    This is most important issue in a generation and the government has failed.

    "This Government is up s**t creek without a paddle"

    Regional Policy Committee would love to hear from members with policy or debate ideas for Autumn Regional Conference. We can help research and draft your ideas into a motion and push it further in the Party. Motions passed at the regional level help influence federal policy, both on their own, and as a step towards a successful motion at Federal Conference.

    If you are new to the party and want to know how you can influence party policy, unsure of what 'policy' is, or have an idea you want us to develop regionally or nationally, please email Mohsin Khan, chair of the Policy Committee, at mohsin.khan@wadh.oxon.org and we'll help you.

    We are also looking for people who can speak or advise on topics at future events to get in touch. If you have any expertise in particular field (for example: education, police, health, defense, engineering, etc.) and would like to contribute to regional or federal policy in any way, please email Mohsin at the email address above.

    Today is UK Black Pride, a day to hear from and celebrate those of us who live in the BAME-LGBT intersection.

    I am one of these people. nadya-phoenix.png

    My name is Nadya Phoenix and I am on the board of the newly established Liberal Democrat Campaign for Race Equality.

    Coming out was a long, and at times very lonely road for me. It took attending an Arab Lesbian/Bisexual event for me to realise that I was not alone. It was a massive step in accepting my sexuality and myself.

    What is an opposition day debate?

    Opposition Days are a chance for opposition party's to decide on a motion for debate in the House of Commons. In most cases the Official Opposition will choose the topic, but this Thursday we will get to set the agenda and debate an issue of our choosing. We only get to lead opposition day debates a couple of times a year, so we want to ensure we use this to debate the issue which is most important to our members.

    One of our suppliers, Typeform, informed us that on the 3rd May 2018 they suffered a data breach - and data from Liberal Democrat members was among the data affected.

    You will have received an email if your data was affected.

    Typeform have informed us that an external hacker managed to get unauthorised access to one of our recent Member Experience Survey and downloaded the results.

    This survey contained names and email address, so we are asking affected members to watch out for potential phishing scams or spam emails. This survey also contained information about political opinions, such as the campaigns and policy areas that are most important to you.

    The survey did not contain any financial details and no other data held on any other systems has been compromised in this breach.

    We are in communication with Typeform and will be re-evaluating our relationship with them in light of this incident.

    We take the security of your data seriously and if we are not satisfied that sufficient steps have been taken to secure your data, we will terminate our relationship with Typeform.

    We have also voluntarily reported this incident to the Information Commissioner's Office.

    We're incredibly sorry that this happened and if you have any other questions about the data breach, please feel free to contact us by emailing help@libdems.org.uk - we'll do our best to answer any queries you may have.

    There have been times this past week when the emotional arguments surrounding the medicinal cannabis debate have threatened to overwhelm me.

    It's an issue that's affected me not just as a politician, but on a deeply personal level too.

    It seemed utterly unbelievable that it took a young boy's life potentially being endangered before the Conservative government accepted the evidence that many have been pointing to for years.
