    Today, we can finally share our full Plan for the Future with you!

    This manifesto is a bold plan to build a brighter future for our country.

    That starts with stopping Brexit.

    The Liberal Democrats will build a brighter future for people and our planet.

    Labour and the Conservatives can't offer the country a brighter future because they both want Brexit. We know that will be bad for our economy, bad for our NHS and bad for our environment.

    For too many people, things aren't working as they should be. The Conservatives and Labour are stuck in the past, failing time and again to deliver a better future.

    Brexit chaos has distracted from the real issues facing our country. While the Tories and Labour are squabbling over the latest Brexit deal, the country is in crisis.

    "Inexplicable and shameful."

    "Inexplicable and shameful." - Hillary Clinton on the UK government's refusal to publish a report into Russian interference in British politics.

    Yeesh. It's almost like she has experience with childish leaders lying to get their own way.

    Hillary Clinton knows first-hand what it feels like to go up against Russian interference into elections. While investigations are still ongoing, many close to Trump are already in jail - for collusion with Russian politicians during the 2016 Election.

    20th November is Trans Day of Remembrance. Every year, we take a moment to remember those in the trans community who have been lost too soon. Too many are killed or are made to feel like they have no choice but to end their lives for simply being who they are.

    We proudly champion the T, alongside the LGB, for a society where no-one is made to feel unsafe or worthless because of who they are or who they love.

    Our schools should be world class, helping every child make the most of the challenges ahead. But instead, they are trailing behind.

    The Conservatives have cut school funding to the bone and children have paid the price, especially those with the most complex needs.

    Highly valued, well trained teachers are the most important resource we have in our education system. Liberal Democrats will recruit 20,000 more teachers and give them the pay and support they deserve.

    Today - Tuesday 19th November - is International Men's Day.

    While women bear the brunt of continuing sexism and discrimination, men can also struggle unfairly because of gender stereotyping. Societal expectations of what a man should be - stoic, emotionally distant, wholly independent - can bring their own pressures for some. Such expectations can contribute to poor mental health and isolation.

    "This law needs to change. ITV needs to change."

    "The Liberal Democrats' position in this election and that of our leader is unique: Jo Swinson is the only leader of a national party fighting to stop Brexit.

    "Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn should not be allowed to sidestep debating the issue of Brexit with someone who wants to remain, and ITV should not give them the opportunity to do so.

    "That is why this is an incredibly disappointing verdict. Not just for the Liberal Democrats but also for democracy in this country, and for every Remainer who deserves to have a voice in this debate.

    Every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote stop the Brexit mess the that Conservatives and Labour have left us in.

    Britain just isn't working the way it should be. People feel disillusioned. The old parties have failed to provide find solutions for the problems we face. Britain desperately needs change.

    Johnson and Corbyn want to go backwards. Johnson dreams of empire, and Corbyn wishes it was the 70s.

    But Jo Swinson is planning the future.
