    Today we stand together as a global community to mark World AIDS Day.

    AIDS is a global health challenge and there are currently more than 100,000 people living with HIV in the UK.

    As a nation, we have made great strides in minimising the physical, psychological and societal impact of HIV. And thanks to the hard work of researchers, our understanding of HIV has grown significantly.

    New analysis has revealed how much UK police rely on vital EU crime-fighting measures.
    Yet Boris Johnson's reckless Brexit plans threaten to cut the UK off.

    Over the past five years, UK police forces and prosecutors have used the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) to arrest over 6,600 criminal fugitives.

    Boris Johnson's interview with LBC exposed yet again how Boris Johnson can't be trusted and is simply not fit for the office of Prime Minister.

    Whether it was on nurses, hospitals or Brexit, Johnson spent an hour lying through his teeth. We've highlighted ten of his mistruths...

    1. 50,000 new nurses

    Johnson continues to peddle the Tory fantasy that they will recruit 50,000 new nurses. He clearly can't do basic maths when 19,000 of this figure is comprised by nurses who already work in the NHS.

    Too many people feel unsafe in their own homes and walking down their local streets. So many communities feel exposed and vulnerable.

    The Conservatives' cuts to police numbers have contributed to a rise in violence and decimated community policing. 47% of people say they never see police foot patrols, up from 30% in 2014-15.

    Every child deserves the best start in life.

    That's why children's charities have asked every party leader how their policies will help children and generations to come.

    Here are five things the Liberal Democrats will do to build a brighter future for every young person:

    1. Stop Brexit

    Brexit is a disaster for our young people. It limits our ambitions and our horizons.

    "We must stop Boris Johnson ramming through a damaging Trump trade deal."

    The US trade team is offering PR tips on how to force chlorinated chicken down our throats.

    That tells you everything you need to know.

    Leaked documents from the US-UK trade deal talks have revealed the truth. The US team agreed to share their "public lines" on chlorine-washed chicken.

    Why? They argue it's to "inform the media narrative."

    In reality, it's "how to sell the lie."

    These trade talks hang in the balance due to Brexit. US negotiators had 'the most angst' about EU limits to the use of chemicals in food production. They want a no-deal Brexit so we can break from EU regulations on food standards.

    The Tories' desperation for a trade deal with Donald Trump risks leading to lower standards for the food on our tables. A hard Brexit means fewer regulations and standards on the quality of our food.

    This will not just be damaging to our health. It will be incredibly damaging to our food production industries, too.

    We must stop Boris Johnson ramming through a damaging Trump trade deal. It will do great damage to both British consumers and farmers.

    We will stop Boris, stop Brexit and uphold our world-leading food standards.

    Our country's health is at the heart of our vision for a brighter future.

    Today, a document was released that lays out the details of talks involving UK and US officials.

    The documents are horrifying.

    They reveal what looks like a deal cooked up between the Tories and Donald Trump that puts our NHS on the table. This, despite Johnson's repeated insistence that the NHS is not for sale.
