    It's been a month since the murder of George Floyd. His death has sparked a global conversation about the discrimination faced by black people every day.

    Other times, you struggle to find words to explain the deep hurt, so you stay silent.

    Black women have had to deal with both gender and racial discrimination all their lives. To us, the current discussion is nothing new; it is our everyday experience, often only discussed when amongst your black friends. These forums are where we talk about the constant policing and judgement of everything from our hair, our clothes, our body and of course, the tone of our voice. Dealing with microaggressions (covert, subtle slights which demean, belittle and ridicule marginalised groups) is normal for us. The list is endless; from being mistaken for another black woman at work and at Party Conference, to being told "you're pretty... for a dark-skinned woman" or that you should stand for election in a posh area because "you speak quite well".

    George Floyd was murdered by police in Minneapolis a month ago today.

    Seeing his last few moments and hearing his final words broadcast across the globe has sparked a renewed revulsion at continuing racial injustice and focused attention on the Black Lives Matter movement.

    For those of us who do not have to confront racism and discrimination every day in anything we do it has been a long overdue wake up call that we still have work to do to wipe out inequality in this country.

    It's been four years since the EU referendum and the UK has left the EU.

    Liberal Democrats are passionately pro-European and while this is a hard pill to swallow for many of us, the issues now at hand are not about Leave or Remain.

    It is unthinkable that the government would rush through a half-heated deal, or worse get no deal at all.

    Seventy-two years ago today, HMS Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury. Its arrival marked a significant moment in British History. Many of the passengers on-board came from the Caribbean, by invitation, to support the reconstruction of our country. Their hard work and skills would later bolster the economy, fill labour shortages and help establish our National Health Service.

    World Refugee Day is an important reminder that we must do all we can to protect people forced to flee their homes to escape war and persecution.

    People who've come to the UK having fled war or persecution should be welcomed with compassion and enabled to contribute to our society.

    The UK has a proud history of providing sanctuary to those in need, but now the Conservative Government is turning its back on refugees and failing to live up to our obligations to them.
