Hi! We're the North Hertfordshire Liberal Democrats.

We think that liberal values need to be defended now more than ever. Locally, we want to hold North Hertfordshire's complacent Conservative Council to account. Nationally, we want to build a fairer society, but also keep the economy strong and secure. Internationally we want the UK to remain part of Europe, and to lead the response to global challenges like climate change.

If you share our values and objectives, then please give us your support.

    The government has carried out impact assessments on policies ranging from songs from ice cream trucks to drain standards to the use of parody in comedy yet still hasn't produced any on Brexit, Liberal Democrat research has revealed.

    This is quite literally beyond parody.

    These revelations come after David Davis yesterday admitted that the 58 Brexit impact assessments he claimed his department was working never existed.

    After David Davis has been accused of misleading parliament, he must resign.

    David Davis needs to go. He has mislead parliament and under his leadership the Brexit department has turned incompetence into an art form.

    I am not one to call for ministerial resignations every two minutes and I've nothing against David Davis as a person but it is now clear he deceived MP. He is also writing the government's Brexit strategy on the back of a fag packet.

    Vince Cable, Leader of the Liberal Democrats, said:

    "Investment is to be welcomed at a time when the railways are struggling to cope with their greatest passenger numbers in nearly a century, but there is scant detail on the financial figures.

    "This government has continually let down passengers, be it the electrification plans that vanished, poor and inconsistent services, or high fares.

    The Brexit divorce bill will just be the down-payment on an economically disastrous extreme Brexit that would take us out of the single market and customs union.

    President Trump has retweeted three anti-Muslim videos originally posted by the deputy leader of far-right group Britain First.

    The mask has yet again slipped, revealing the atrocious views of President Trump.

    It is incredibly dangerous for someone in his position of responsibility to sow such division and hatred at every turn.

    Trump needs to do the world a favour and delete his account.
