    The power to strip someone of their citizenship is one of the most serious the Home Secretary possesses.

    It should only be taken when absolutely necessary. And only when the national security interest can be proven in court.

    Was Javid's decision to strip Shamima Begum's citizenship about the safety of our country or the advancement of his career?

    Here is a summary of the Q&A session with Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson MP at our party's Federal Conference in Bournemouth this weekend.

    Q: Do you forgive David Cameron for calling the 2016 referendum?

    A: No, I don't forgive him. Much of the problems we currently face come from David Cameron's shocking misjudgement and putting the interests of the Conservative party above the national interest. He did it when he announced the referendum in the first place, he did it when he won a majority. And this is clearly a pattern with Conservative prime ministers. The future of our country is at stake - people are losing jobs, feeling the impact of the falling pound and they're worried about our public services. Over 5000 of our nurses are from EU countries. There are 3 million EU citizens living now with uncertainty and a disturbing spike in hate crime. On so many grounds such as these, David Cameron cannot be forgiven.

    Last week, I and twenty brave colleagues took the ultimate step of defying the Conservative whip to make crashing out on October 31st illegal. In an unprecedented move, Boris Johnson withdrew the whip from us all writes Sam Gyimah MP.

    I won't be seeking to get it back. It is with great sadness that I've come to realise the Conservative Party is no longer the party I joined more than twenty years ago.

    Article: Sep 14, 2019

    One of the crowning achievements of our time in the coalition was legalising same-sex marriage writes Christine Jardine MP.

    This was a key part of our manifesto in 2010, and despite it not being in either the Labour or Tory manifestos, we negotiated for it to be in the coalition agreement - and under the incredible work of Lynne Featherstone in the Home Office, we passed the legislation in 2013.

  • Tom Brake
    Article: Sep 10, 2019

    I have never witnessed a Parliamentary session quite like last night writes Tom Brake MP.

    The government shut down Parliament, against the wishes of the Speaker and the opposition parties.

    The people have never needed the voices of their MPs more.

    And at this crucial moment, Boris Johnson has silenced us.
