    If this speech was supposed to offer an olive branch to Remainers, Boris must have picked up the other version.

    A clear majority of Remain and Leave voters oppose the damaging hard Brexit Boris so vigorously advocates.

    They do not want job cuts triggered by tougher trading conditions with our largest export market or life-threatening uncertainty at the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

    Boris's antipathy towards the common rules and standards which apply within the EU, and to trade within the EU, is in stark contrast to Brexiters head-long rush to adopt common standards with the US which would require the UK to accept chlorine-washed chicken, hormone-fed beef, GMO products and potentially open up the NHS to US private health companies.

    If Boris is seeking to establish himself as the standard bearer of liberalism, he should dump plans to come out of the Single Market and Customs Union and campaign to stay in the world's largest free trade area.

    Consultation sham
    Last year from mid September to mid December, Conservative controlled East Sussex County Council staged a well publicised consultation on the future of libraries in East Sussex. They said in the document 'Our proposals have not yet been decided' and then promised to 'once the consultation is complete and the results have been analysed to present revised proposals to Cabinet in March 2018.

    Helen Evans, former head of safeguarding at Oxfam, made damning accusations about the lack of basic processes and disregard of serious concerns she raised, the substance of which were not denied by the Chief Executive.

    The government must now accept that nothing short of a full and far-reaching enquiry into illegal sexual behaviour within Oxfam and across the wider aid sector, will do.

    Michel Barnier has warned that a transition period immediately after Brexit is 'not a given' and that he did not understand some of the UK's positions on Brexit.

    When Barnier says he doesn't understand some of the positions the UK government are taking over Brexit, he is not only speaking for the EU but also the entire British population.

    Things are changing. More and more people are waking up to the need for a new vote on the final Brexit deal.

    Even Nigel Farage is!

    What we all agree on is that Theresa May and her Brexit Conservative government are failing badly on the negotiations with the European Union.

    Half the country wants to remain in the EU and the Liberal Democrats have not given up on them.

    NHS A&E waiting times have hit the worst levels on record.

    This is yet more evidence of the growing crisis in our health and social care services, where staff are being put under great pressure and quality of care for patients is suffering.

    When will the Government wake up to the fact that they urgently need to commit additional funding?
