    I have been proud to represent the people of the Totnes constituency since 2010 and to be standing again as the Liberal Democrat for re-election on 12 December.

    Over the last two years, many of you have written to tell me that the Conservative Party no longer represents your views and values. I agree, and this was a key reason for me leaving the Party. It is the Liberal Democrats who best represent the open-hearted, One Nation values that drew me into politics.

    Supreme Court judgement rules unanimously that Boris Johnson's prorogation of Parliament was unlawful. The judgement of the 11 judges upholds the view that the PM had "improper purpose." The Government are yet again showing themselves wholly incapable of solving the Brexit crisis.

    The Liberal Democrat Party Conference was like a breath of fresh air and it was lovely to be there with Caroline Voaden and Keith Smith.

    It wasn't just sunshine on the outside in Bournemouth, there was genuine warmth and optimism from around the main hall, fringes and networks. I was at home amongst hundreds of first time attendees enjoying the wide ranging debates around the motions and policy ideas.

    All the signs are currently showing that we are fast approaching the calling of a General Election . It appears that we have been given some breathing space as the Prime Minister continues to box himself into a corner.

    We won!! In the early hours of the 2nd August, the Lib Dems won the Brecon & Radnorshire by-election with a majority of over 1,400 votes. The election of Jane Dodds cuts the Government's overall majority to one and brings closer the the prospect of a Government defeat on its catastrophic Brexit policy, and either a People's Vote or a general election - or both.
