Anyone who was at the last two Liberal Democrat conferences should remember the two debates that were held on the party's position on the future relationship between the UK and the EU. In a passionately argued debate last September, conference resolved that the party should support a longer-term objective of UK membership of the the EU, but we rejected a proposal for an immediate campaign to reverse Brexit, which, it was argued, was more likely to alienate voters sick of the recent history of Brexit-inspired division and bitterness. Conference also called for the closest possible alignment between the UK and the EU on trade, security, environmental, social, judicial, educational and scientific issues.
The Guardian today reports that a Hong Kong-based property tycoon, Mr Cheung Chung-kiu, is being allowed to develop a property in Knightsbridge which he bought for £205m earlier this year. As the property had a single previous owner Westminster Council evidently has no power to refuse the planning request. The property will be renovated to make it into an eight story palace for the private use of Mr Cheung Chung-kiu.
