    The last ten days have seen major stories of racism in both of Britain's major parties.

    What is happening in the Labour party - and Boris Johnson's comments this week - are frightening to many Jewish and Muslim people living in Britain.

    This is a reflection of the way the politics of identity dominates politics today and attracts comments, sometimes critical or offensive, about particular groups.

    It may be mid-August but the bad news about Brexit is increasing by the day! Senior Brexiteers such as Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg continue to peddle their populist nonsense, against the facts: the pound dropping against the Euro; international organisations moving their EU HQ out of Britain; and even the Governor of the Bank of England confirming Brexit will not be good for the economy. Only Vince Cable and the Lib Dems remain totally committed to an Exit from Brexit, and giving the people a Final Say on the deal, with more regions that voted leave now changing their minds.

    Nathan McCollum - Conservative 187
    Linda McCollum - Conservative 186

    Two weeks ago, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. His name is Gabriel and we adore him.

    My situation isn't typical - I'm an MP. I'm not only an MP, I'm the Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats.

    And our party's goal right now - above all else - is to stop Brexit. We want to give the people the final say on the Brexit deal, including the option to remain in the EU.

    Today the Electoral Commission ruled on what we all knew - Leave cheated.

    Vote Leave have been fined £60,000 for incomplete and inaccurate expenses and for working jointly with pro-Brexit group BeLeave - and using this to get around their spending ceiling of £7 million.

    And, lest we forget, the referendum result was just 51.9% for Leave and 48.1% for Remain.
