    Claire Perry-Conservative Member of Parliament for the Devizes constituency-announced yesterday (Friday, 6th September) that she will not seek re-election but will instead concentrate on her role as President of next year's major UN conference on climate (COP 26). There is no bigger or more important political job for Claire to take on. I wish her every success in COP 26's task of extracting detailed greenhouse gas reduction plans from the world's governments.

    For the past three years, while the Conservative Party has torn itself apart over Brexit and Labour has dodged, ducked and danced around it, Liberal Democrats have been delivering a clear, consistent message: that Britain's best future is to remain in the EU and that crashing out without a deal would be disastrous for our country.

    While the European elections were a great success for us, the risk of a disastrous no-deal break from Europe is now greater than ever.

    We need to do more. Nigel Farage and his crew crafted a powerful message, but with the European elections out of the way, the greater risk is from a different source - from a failed and divided Tory party.

    Britain's railways are essential to everyday life - they transport millions to and from work and around the country day in, day out.

    Unfortunately, all too often our trains are late, crowded or cancelled. Ticketing is a confusing mess and the railways and their rolling stock are in desperate need of investment.

    It's no secret: crime rates in the UK have been rising.

    Brutal knife and gun crimes have become a sad fixture of our headlines, while conviction rates for offences including violent robberies and sexual assaults have experienced an alarming decline.

    Why?

    Since 2015, the Conservatives have cut £1bn from police budgets while resolutely maintaining that falling policing numbers have nothing to do with rising crime.

    There are just 11 days left to get your nominations in for the candidates you'd like to see elected to party committees.

    If you need a reminder of which roles are up for election, here it is:

    Top of the bill is Federal President, to take over from Sal Brinton on 1 January and serve for 2020, 2021 and 2022. This is a major role chairing the party's Federal Board, protecting and representing members, and acting as guardian of the party's interests. Hustings will be held throughout the country during the two-month campaign, and candidates may raise and spend £20,000 campaigning for the job.
