    Following extensive discussions at the GLD 30th Anniversary Conference held in Nottingham in May, Conference organiser and GLD Exec member Keith Melton looked at policy resolutions to put before the Autumn Conference in Brighton. He has also considered a resolution which looks at how the Liberal Democrats should treat Green issues in a strategic electoral sense. The suggested resolution below has been passed by Newark and Sherwood Liberal Democrats in the name of Keith Melton, who was also responsible for organising the original Nottingham Conference back in 1988 from which the Green Liberal Democrats was created. Keith was Chair of the Liberal Ecology Group at the time and had been active in Liberal politics since 1964.

    To make matters worse Jeremy Corbyn's Labour party is still cowering behind the sofa rather than being a real opposition.

    If there was ever a time for the people to stand up and demand to be listened to it is now - and they are.

    23rd June is the second anniversary of the European referendum Leavers lied about having a plan and it's now clear that there is no plan for our exit. It's costing us all money, jobs, damaging the NHS and the future for peace and security for our young.

    The Liberal Democrats have many strengths as a party.

    But right now we failing in one key area - diversity. We have too few women, too few people without a university education - and far too few BAME members in our party.

    This is not the kind of party we want to be.

    Together we are going to do something about it but I need you to be bold.

    We were so close.

    Lib Dem MP Wera Hobhouse has been fighting to make 'upskirting' (taking photographs up a woman's skirt without their consent) a specific criminal offence.

    This month has been the most successful yet frustrating one we've had for our Brexit campaign.

    At the end of May we won a series of victories against the government in the House of Lords.

    We defeated the government on the EU Withdrawal Bill a staggering 15 times - thanks to the thousands of supporters who wrote to Peers we identified who would consider supporting us on this.
