    On 23 September, Dinesh Dhamija (LibDem MEP for London), in partership with the UK Permanent Representation to the EU and Eurogroup for Animals, opened the exhibition titled Illegal Wildlife Trade.

    Open from 23-27 September, the exhibition informed MEPs and visitors to the Parliament that the illegal wildlife trade not only endangers some of our most iconic species of wildlife, but it is a serious organised crime and damages the livelihoods of some of the world's poorest communities.

    We've got some great news - Luciana Berger will be standing to be the next Liberal Democrat MP for Finchley and Golder's Green!

    Luciana had this to say:

    "It has been an enormous privilege to have served as the MP for Liverpool Wavertree for almost ten years.

    I cannot thank my constituents enough for the relationship we have grown over the last decade and what we have achieved together."

    We've done it. Parliament is open again.

    At the Supreme Court, we defeated Boris Johnson's illegal attempt to silence the will of the people.

    The message is clear. Boris Johnson cannot undo democracy.

    We need to do this because we can't trust the Prime Minister to obey the law.

    So what happens next? Today, Lib Dem MPs are back in Parliament to hold the government to account. Our priority is clear - we're going to stop Brexit.

    1. Corbyn's campaigning

    To say Jeremy Corbyn's campaigning efforts in the 2016 EU referendum were lacklustre would be putting it very generously.

    Despite certain Labour figures claiming that they were a 'Remain party', voters were kept in the dark about their real stance, with Corbyn famously labelling his enthusiasm for staying in the EU as a "seven, or seven and a half out of 10".

    The Supreme Court has made it's ruling - the prorogation of Parliament was illegal.

    MPs should be allowed to scrutinise the Government without having their voices silenced. This is the basis for our democracy.

    The Conservatives' authoritarian power grab wasn't just illegal, it was downright wrong.

    The Conservatives' authoritarian power grab wasn't just illegal, it was downright wrong. Parliament - not the Government - is sovereign, and this cynical attempt to stop MPs from doing their job was simply outrageous.

    This week is National Inclusion Week, a national event designed to celebrate diversity and explore new ways to make all aspects of community life as inclusive as possible.

    The Liberal Democrats are an inclusive party: striving to create a free and open society is one of the cornerstones of our constitution. We believe that this is key to both individual and national prosperity.
