    To all our new members and supporters... Welcome!

    The UK political scene is in a period of considerable change, and the future is very uncertain. However, the support for our party is growing rapidly. If you're a former member looking to rejoin, somebody who has always supported us but never joined, somebody who has been moved by the recent EU referendum, or anyone who is a true Liberal; then we would love for you to join us today.

    "Far from being Bush's passenger, Blair was his co-pilot in taking this catastrophic decision which has destabilised Iraq, provided the hotbed for Daesh and tarnished Britain's reputation around the word."

    Today I want to talk about Britain's two most important relationships: with our neighbours in Europe; and our cousins in the United States.

    Ahead of the key vote on Monday on whether the UK should offer sanctuary to 3,000 child refugees, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has written to every MP calling on them to put party politics aside and 'stand up for humanity'.
