    With every announcement, the government is making clear that they intend to leave the EU without a deal on 31st October - and EU citizens are going to be left in the lurch.

    Over the weekend, the government announced that they intend to end Freedom of Movement on October 31st - despite promises from Theresa May's government that there would be a two-year transition period.

    MARGARET JONES

    I imagine few knew Margaret Jones' background when she moved to Little Common in 1987. Fewer would have known her record of successful national campaigns. She decided at a very young age to become a journalist and was apprenticed for three years with Home Counties Newspapers. As one of the very few women in this field she rose to be one of the most successful journalists covering major political stories, royal overseas tours and then travelling all over the world as a foreign correspondent. (Margaret's photo album is a record of her with many famous names: the Queen and Prince Philip, Princess Margaret and Lord Snowden as well as many foreign royals.) She twice won commendations in the Journalist of the Year Awards and as Best Woman Journalist of the Year in the mid seventies.

    London is a liberal city. Over 250 languages are spoken in the capital, making it the most linguistically diverse city in the world. As host to one of the largest Pride events in Europe and the biggest carnival outside Rio, London and its residents celebrate diversity and embrace difference.

    London is also a Remain city. It is home to a third of all the EU citizens living in the UK and every sector in the capital - from hoteliers to health-workers, builders to bankers - relies on EU migrants to thrive.

    Congratulations to Jane Dodds and the Welsh Lib Dems for the brilliant result in Brecon and Radnorshire! Thank you to everyone of you who helped, both by appearing in the constituency to knock on doors and deliver leaflets, and for those who phoned, helped with admin tasks from a distance too. Jane is already showing that she will be an exceptional MP, joining Jo Swinson's parliamentary party.

    There are plenty of similarities between Boris Johnson and Donald Trump. They say imitation is the highest form of flattery - maybe it's Johnson's way of sucking up for that trade deal. Which probably makes him the only person in the country looking forward to chlorinated chicken.

    In fact, in a speech a while, Trump said "they call [Johnson] Britain Trump and people are saying that's a good thing. They like me over there."*

    People are fed up of seeing politicians arguing for things that put their party's interest above the country. We have to come together to prevent Boris Johnson crashing us out the EU without a deal. I'm proud of the work that the Liberal Democrats have done with MPs from all parties and none to make stopping Brexit a real possibility.

    Coming straight off the back of the Brecon and Radnorshire campaign, we launched our election campaign for Sheffield Hallam at the weekend, with more than 100 people who joined us to knock on doors, deliver leaflets, and help with clerical work in the office.

    It seems like promising Lib Dem by-elections are like buses - you wait for a long time and then two come along at once!

    In just eleven weeks, however, our country faces an immediate crisis: crashing out of the EU without any deal. The most cavalier and catastrophic of Brexits: putting at risk hundreds of thousands of jobs , public services including our NHS , and even our national security.

    So in this moment of national emergency, I stand ready to work with anyone to stop Boris Johnson and his hard-line Brexit government.
