He has already swallowed the PMs line hook, line and sinker. But at least Theresa May knows where to find Jeremy Corbyn, it's in the same voting lobby as her, helping her, like he has before, to deliver this divisive, hard Brexit.

    Monthly Policy Discussion Group

    One of the things that is great about being a Liberal Democrat is that many of our policies, those you see our MPs discussing on the news, at some point start out as an idea from a party member in a local party, someone like you!

    Our policy discussion group focuses on identifying and developing policies - support is given in a friendly environment to individual members as part of the group to help craft effective policy motions from scratch that are more likely to get picked up at Local, Regional and hopefully Federal level.
