    • Jo Swinson quote
      Article: Oct 18, 2019

      Boris Johnson announced yesterday that he has agreed a Brexit deal with the EU. But the fight to stop Brexit is far from over. If the Johnson deal passes the UK is heading for 'fairly hard' Brexit.

      Lib Dem Leader Jo Swinson MP said, The proposed deal will be bad for our economy, bad for our public services and bad for environmental standards. Just like every version of Brexit, this is a bad deal. Johnson's deal is nowhere near as good as the deal we have now, as a member of the EU. That is why I am more determined than ever to stop Brexit. That is why Liberal Democrats will be arguing that any deal should go back to the public in a People's Vote.

    • National Adoption Week
      Article: Oct 18, 2019

      It is National Adoption Week, 14 - 20 October and Bedford Borough Council is urging adoptive families to come forward in an effort to provide homes for children.

      The focus for 2019 is on those children who wait the longest to find a loving home - those in a sibling group, children from Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, older children and those with complex health needs or those with a disability.

      History is inescapable. It helps define our identity, our culture and our sense of belonging. By connecting to the past, we gain a better understanding of ourselves and our place in the world. Yet, some parts of history are ignored, suppressed or erased altogether. None more so than black history.

      Although black people have been living in Britain as far back as the Roman Empire, their place in our national history has been exiled to the farthest margins.

      It seems Boris Johnson has managed to cobble together yet another disastrous Brexit deal.

      It remains to be seen if he can get the deal passed by the House of Commons, but we already know two things for certain:

      We will use every option available to give you the right to stop Brexit

      1. Whatever deal Johnson proposes, it's not as good as the one we have now as a member of the EU.
      2. We will not stop fighting to stop Brexit.

      Commenting on reports that a deal has been agreed between the EU and the UK government, the Leader of the Liberal Democrats Jo Swinson, said: "The fight to stop Brexit is far from over. Boris Johnson's deal would be bad for our economy, bad for our public services, and bad for our environment.

      "The next few days will set the direction of our country for generations, and I am more determined than ever to stop Brexit. When this deal comes to Parliament we will use every possible opportunity to give the public a People's Vote on the Brexit deal that includes the option to remain in the European Union."
