    The UK should be leading the world on tackling the environment crisis. Our planet is on the brink of being irreparably damaged and we are responsible for that damage.

    The climate emergency is real and our planet is heating to unsustainable levels. Young people have taken to the streets because they're so worried that the Conservatives are failing to act.

    The NHS is the envy of the world, but our mental health service is not. Waiting times are being missed, people are not being referred for the treatment they need, and often action is taken only when at 'crisis' point, or too late.

    That's why the Liberal Democrats are dedicated to transforming mental health services by treating them with the same urgency as physical health.

    The Liberal Democrats are surging across the UK. We've won hundreds of council seats and 15 brilliant new MEPs - our best election results ever.

    People are tired of the same dreary offers from the Conservative and Labour parties. Whether it's the days of the empire or 1970s socialism, Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn want to take our country backwards.

    Today, we're kicking off the Liberal Democrats' Plan for the Future.

    At our general election campaign launch, leader Jo Swinson has declared that a Liberal Democrat government will Stop Brexit and use the £50 billion Remain Bonus to invest in public services and tackle inequality.

    This £50 billion injection to the areas that need it most can only be delivered by a Lib Dem government - we are the only party standing up to stop Brexit.

    Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn are running scared.

    That was the message coming across when ITV announced an election debate at the end of last week - but only between the two tired old parties.

    This is a stitch-up by Labour and the Conservatives. Two men having a cosy pro-Brexit debate and shutting out the woman leader of the strongest party of Remain. It's unacceptable, and we want to see it changed.

    I am livid.

    It is unbelievable that the two Brexiteer leaders of the two old stale parties will be debating the politics of the past, meanwhile Jo Swinson the one leader who unequivocally represents remainers and wants to debate how we build a brighter future is left out of the conversation.

    The leader of the strongest party of Remain demanding a People's Vote deserves to be heard. You've already taken the first step towards making sure they #DebateHer.

    Dear Dame Carolyn

    I am extremely disappointed that ITV are planning to exclude the Liberal Democrats from your General Election debate on 19th November.

    Corbyn and Johnson both are pursuing Brexit and represent the two tired establishment parties. A debate between just them offers no real alternative and stifles the conversation.

    Brexit has fundamentally rewritten the structure and shape of our politics.

    As the chief architect of Brexit, it has warped the values and principles of the Conservative Party most of all. It is therefore inevitable that politicians and the public take stock and look at the parties they support and assess whether they are fit for purpose.

    This election is a once in a generation opportunity to reshape our politics, and give hope to the millions of people who want a fairer, brighter future.

    That's why, today, we have launched our campaign slogan: Stop Brexit. Build a brighter future.
