    As Brexit drags on, it becomes clearer every day - it's a national embarrassment. More and more people are realising how important EU membership is for our country and our future.

    Theresa May is trying to push through a deal that panders to her party's extreme fringe and Nigel Farage. Again and again, Jeremy Corbyn has helped her, letting down Labour supporters across the UK.

    Vote Liberal Democrat on 23rd May 2019 if you want to Stop Brexit.

    The Liberal Democrats are fighting these elections as the largest pro-European Party, campaigning hard for a People's Vote with an option to remain in the EU. We are working hard to give a voice to the millions of people who demand better than Brexit Britain.

    We are fighting these elections on a clear message: a Liberal Democrat vote is a vote to stop Brexit.

    From local communities to the EU institutions, Liberal Democrats are determined to give a voice to the millions of people who demand better than Brexit Britain.

    Every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to Stop Brexit. People are fed up with the mess on Brexit. It has become a national embarrassment. Every day more and more people are realising how important EU membership is to our country.

    Westminster politics has failed us - Theresa May has stuck trying to deliver the kind of Brexit only Nigel Farage wanted. Jeremy Corbyn has let her get away with it by fighting for a Labour Brexit instead of listening to millions of Labour voters who want a People's Vote. This election can change things.

    It's time to demand better - a vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to stop Brexit. A People's Vote is the only way to break the deadlock and settle Brexit once and for all. We will fight to remain so that we can build a Britain where we can grow our economy, tackle climate change and protect our public services.

    A People's Vote can end years of arguments and division on Brexit - meaning we can get on with tackling the big issues today including

    • Tackling inequality and lack of opportunity by growing our economy in all parts of the UK,
    • Take the big steps on tackling climate change and pollution that threaten our future, and
    • Protecting our public services - our schools, hospitals, police and other services that we rely on. South East

    The Liberal Democrat candidates for the South East are as follows:

    1. Catherine Bearder

    The Liberal Democrats have condemned the Conservative Government for slashing Surrey County Council budget for special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) by £4,403.72 per pupil in real terms since 2015, resulting in a loss of specialist provision.

    The National Education Union, which published these statistics on 15 April, has warned that local authorities have now reached crisis point.

    Although children with the highest special educational needs and disabilities have a legal right to extra support, the National Education Union has warned that funding under the Conservative Government has failed to keep up with increasing costs and rising pupil numbers.

    The Liberal Democrats are campaigning for more money for these pupils who possess an Education, Health and Care Plan, saving schools and councils hundreds of millions of pounds.

    Liberal Democrat Education Spokesperson, Layla Moran MP, said:

    "Everyone deserves the best start in life, and education can be the make or break difference. It is therefore heartbreaking, particularly as a teacher, that Conservative Ministers are failing the children most in need.

    "It doesn't need to be this way. Young people deserve better, and the Liberal Democrats demand better. That's why we would invest millions more to support children with an Education, Health and Care Plan, freeing up money in the schools budget to provide tailored in-school support for children with less complex additional needs such as dyslexia."

    Cllr Angela Goodwin, Liberal Democrat County Councillor for Guildford North, said:

    "SEND funding is an investment in a child's future. It can help someone with a learning difficulty or disability secure a higher paid job, security and independence in later life.

    Many of these private members' bills simply fell off the parliamentary order paper this week - the Tory government failed to give us to debate these vital issues. Others were outright blocked. We must demand better than this broken government, distracted by their Brexit mess.

    Here are our 14 progressive private members' bills the government doesn't want you to know about.

    After months of deadlock, on Monday night Parliament voted to take control of Brexit away from the Government.

    Today we will be going through a process of "indicative votes". This might be a normal way of doing things in just about any other walk of life but in Parliament it is novel and I wanted to share with you a few thoughts about how we shall approach these votes and what we want to achieve.
