    A Message to Theresa May - 'You are in a hole so please stop digging!'

    By Jon James

    Dear Prime Minister

    No amount of arm twisting by your Government's Whips or promises of honours to wavering Tory MPs is going to change the way that parliament votes on December 11th. Almost a third of your MPs are planning to vote down 'your deal', two of your appointees handling the negotiations have already resigned along with several other members of your government; your party is in turmoil. The unedifying internal domestic disputes over Europe which have plagued your Party for decades continue to play out in public. Your Party's survival should not be your overriding concern at a time of national crisis. As you must have heard on your flying visits, the country at large is in danger of becoming so battle weary after over two years of these shambolic negotiations to listen to any of the counter arguments.

    Give us a real debate

    A debate between Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn would be a debate between two cosy Brexiters.

    The public deserve to hear all the options on Brexit. Giving the people the final say, including the option to remain, is the only real alternative to the national embarrassment of Brexit.

    We need to pressure the BBC and ITV to include the Liberal Democrats in any debate to put the case for giving the people the final say on Brexit.

    World Aids Day

    On Saturday 1st December millions of people, internationally, will be supporting the 30th Anniversary of World AIDS Day.

    Globally, 35 million people have died from HIV and AIDS and there are still around 36.7 million people living with HIV. There has been a fall in the number of diagnoses in the UK, however it is vital that we all remain vigilant and keep awareness of the stigmas and discrimination that are still around and show our commitment to stamping out AIDS for good!
