    That's the saying I live my life by, because taking action is the only way to change things in this world, and bugger me this world needs some change.

    That saying has led me to a lot of places writes Lisa Smart. I joined the party, started delivering leaflets, knocked on doors, stood for council and stood for parliament because I needed to act.

    Speaking on the statement by the Prime Minister on HS2 and Transport Infrastructure, which was repeated in the House of Lords by transport minister Baroness Vere, Pendle based Liberal Democrat Lord Tony Greaves said that "those of us who live in the corridor between East Lancashire and Skipton in the Aire Valley in Yorkshire are not bothered about having high-speed rail. We want our railway back: the 11 miles between Colne and Skipton."

    For the last four years, the Liberal Democrats have proudly fought to stop Brexit.

    I am immensely proud of everything we did. We stood up for our values. We campaigned so hard. But I also accept that at 11pm tonight, we will no longer be members of the European Union.

    Our European story is not over. Tomorrow our fight continues, to make sure Britain has the closest possible relationship with our allies in Europe.

    This morning Liberal Democrat Acting Leader Ed Davey MP gave a speech on Brexit and Britain's future, at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester.

    He said:

    "Tomorrow will be a celebration for some. But for others it will be a dark day.

    "For the millions of us who marched against Brexit and the millions who voted to stay, tomorrow will be desperately hard.

    "We built the largest pro-European movement this country has ever seen. And though ultimately we did not succeed in stopping Brexit, I am immensely proud of all that we have achieved."

    How Liberal Democrats will continue to fight

    "The Liberal Democrats will always be a proud pro-European, internationalist party. We will never stop fighting for Britain to have the closest possible relationship with our European friends.

    "And we will never stop fighting for our wider liberal, progressive values. We believe the United Kingdom is stronger when we work more closely with other nations and when we work with other progressives across our own country.

    "Liberal Democrats will work with anyone within our United Kingdom, who share our values, to re-unite our country."

    Divisions in the country

    "We must no longer be a country that is divided by leave and remain, but that means we must heal our country's other divides too.

    "For if Brexit has taught us anything, it is there are many serious divisions to fix. The UK is divided by inequality of opportunity. Inequality of wealth. Inequality of power. Inequality of hope.

    "And the forces of English and Scottish nationalism unleashed by these divisions, cannot bring our fractured country together: by their very nature they seek to divide our United Kingdom further.

    "Only progressive parties like the Liberal Democrats will fight to disperse power and wealth across our country, and to create opportunity for every child and every community."

    We share your frustration

    "To the many people who voted to leave the EU out of frustration.

    "Because opportunity has not been fairly shared.

    "Because too much wealth has stayed in the hands of the always wealthy.

    "Because too much power had stayed in the hands of the already powerful.

    "They have. We agree with you. We share your frustration - and your impatience for change.

    "From the deep reform of Britain's democracy and power, to our radical vision of a fairer, greener economy, Liberal Democrats offer real change that can truly unite our country."
