    It's taken us two years of negotiations with the EU to get a deal.

    Residents have been warned that the fight to save Friary Grange Leisure Centre is still not over.

    The future of the facility was thrown into doubt when Lichfield District Council announced plans to shut the site from April 2020.

    But a petition backed by thousands of residents led to a review of the decision, with the local authority's Cabinet set to make a final decision next month.

    With a General Election looking very likely in the next few months, keen local members met in Lichfield on 4th September with our candidate, Paul Ray to plan our campaign. Enthusiasm and good ideas were abundant. The recent local election experience suggests that it is by no means impossible that we could deprive Michael Fabricant of his seat.

    Liberal Democrats love delivering leaflets. (And it's a good thing we do, as the evidence shows that they work.) If you've shared that love, chances are you've delivered ones that use one of our favourite strap lines: 'A record of action… a promise of more'.

    That's what I'm offering in this election for Party President: a record of listening, a record of taking action, and a plan to work with you to achieve even more in the future.

    After today's votes, Boris Johnson must obey the law and send a letter asking for Article 50 to be extended.

    We will use that extra time to secure a People's Vote, to keep Britain in the European Union and to reject this awful deal.
