    Lib Dem and Remainer social media is aflutter today with discussions of the Canterbury situation.

    Some people argue with great passion that we should be standing aside for Labour's candidate Rosie Duffield. I know Rosie and she is a good person. I think she would be a much better fit in the Liberal Democrats, but she has chosen to stay in Labour. I understand people's instinctive desire to give her a clear run at her seat in the name of Remain.

    Jo Swinson would make a better Prime Minister than either Johnson or Corbyn.

    Yesterday, the Liberal Democrats filed legal proceedings against ITV.

    They have refused to include Jo Swinson in their Leaders Debate numerous times. This is despite Jo being the leader of the biggest and strongest Remain party in the country.

    As the world grapples with a climate emergency, the Conservatives are turning their backs on communities most at risk by failing to provide adequate flood defences.

    Following the flooding across northern England this week, we've announced that a over the lifetime of the next parliament, a Liberal Democrat government will create a £5bn flood prevention and adaptation fund. The fund will help the UK build resilience against future flooding, and ensure all communities can access the funds they need during periods of crisis.

    Working hard should mean secure work and a decent income, but for too many people that's not the case. In an ever changing workplace, people often need to develop new skills, but the cost of courses and qualifications shuts too many people out.

    Neither the Conservatives or Labour have the answers to these challenges. They are stuck pursuing 20th-century policies that simply won't work in our 21st-century economy. They would take our country backwards.

    BREXIT PARTY STANDING DOWN IN RUSHCLIFFE SHOWS FARAGE WORRIED ABOUT LIB DEMS STOPPING BREXIT

    Responding to the news that Nigel Farage's Brexit Party will not be standing a candidate in Rushcliffe, Liberal Democrat candidate Jason Billin said:

    "Nigel Farage's comments show he is running scared of the Liberal Democrats as the strongest Remain party in areas like Rushcliffe. He knows that we are the only party at this election that can take seats like Rushcliffe from the Conservatives and stop Brexit.

    "Boris Johnson's Conservatives and the Brexit party are now one and the same. Both want to see an extreme Brexit that will damage our local economy, public services and limit opportunities for our children and grandchildren.

    "Voters in Rushcliffe have an historic opportunity at this election to elect a Liberal Democrat MP, stop Brexit and build a brighter future for our country."

    Statement from our candidate, Jason Billin:

    "On the day that we remember those who have served and suffered in war, I am so grateful that Rushcliffe has the honour of hosting the Defence National Rehabilitation Centre at Stanford Hall. If elected, I will work to make sure that Stanford Hall has the resources to support veterans' needs for mental health as well as physical health, just as the Liberal Democrats will ensure equal footing and funding for mental and physical health across the NHS.

    Many people in our community, even my own friends in East Leake, need support with rehabilitation to live their lives to the full; I want to ensure that the excellent care provided also supports local people in Rushcliffe. We can make the DNRC a beacon of excellence for the whole area."
