    All 11 Lib Dem MPs voted against this shambolic Conservative Government in last night's vote of no confidence.

    In the aftermath, Theresa May invited me to discuss the next steps. I accepted, but in our discussion, I was clear.

    There will be no progress until no deal is off the table. We won't vote for this needlessly destructive Brexit. We need a people's vote.

    Theresa May's Brexit deal just lost in the Commons by 230 votes. This is huge - she's failed to convince her party, failed to convince Parliament and failed in her attempt to scaremonger MPs into backing her. It's the biggest loss in the Commons by a Government - ever.

    Brexit is a national embarrassment.

    Theresa May's botched Brexit deal goes to the Commons tomorrow night, and its chances are looking slim.

    A Lords motion regretting the damage Brexit would do and rejecting no deal has passed by a stonking 169 votes.

    The media's been laser focused on Theresa May's sinking Brexit deal. But today, 3 crucial bills have gone through the Lords, with significant Lib Dem input. We're fighting to:

    • Protect the privacy of people who wear skirts
    • Outlaw exploitative letting fees
    • Allow people to go about their lives without the Government butting in

    We all remember waking up to that awful result two and a half years ago. We were all braced for uncertainty. But nobody could have predicted how disastrously the wheels came off the Brexit wagon.

    Warnings of food and medicine shortages. Tearing up vital environmental laws. Becoming rule takers, not rule makers.

    Two and a half years ago, on the steps of Downing Street, the Prime Minister promised to tackle society's burning injustices.

    My constituents elected me to fight for a People's Vote and to keep our Union together.

    I was glad to hear it. We could argue all day why people voted to Leave. But at the heart of it for many was a loss of faith in the basic promise that if you work hard and play by the rules, you'll get on in life.

    Wolverhampton Liberal Democrat members and other supporters of the People's Vote Campaign were yet again in Queen Square to talk to Saturday morning shoppers about Brexit.

    Over two thirds (67.3%) of those spoken to thought the Government was not able to deliver Brexit.

    Over half (53.9%) think Brexit will harm Wolverhampton and 62.2% think they should be given the final say on Brexit.

    The likelihood of politicians reaching a consensus on Brexit appears to be diminishing by the day - to consternation on all sides. But what if there's another way?

    Parliament is split on May's deal and even that is not along party lines. There are what appear to be unbreachable schisms within both the Tories and Labour.

    For more than two years, the Liberal Democrats have been leading the fight on Brexit. And it's working - a year ago, less than 20% of the British people wanted a final say - now a majority of the public want to have their say.
