    As part of the motion, we have also condemned, in the strongest possible terms, President Trump's climate change denial and his decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Agreement.

    Like many of you, I have just returned from my first break since the General Election, and I hope that you are refreshed and ready for a busy political autumn.

    I have had a good summer, meeting Liberal Democrat members all over the UK in 15 Q&A sessions. It has been great to listen to your ideas, and a pleasure to answer questions face-to-face about the future of our Party and the country.

    The tour has also been a welcome opportunity to outline my plans to place the Liberal Democrats at the centre of UK political life: a credible, effective Party of national and local government, and a voice of sanity on Europe and the economy.

    "Government power grab". "Affront to democracy" "Constitutional Outrage".

    The stuff of headlines and, more often than not, a little overblown.

    Not this week. This week could be the worst for parliamentary democracy for some time. It all starts tonight.

    Tonight my parliamentary colleagues and I shall be sitting until midnight to conclude the debate on the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill. By the time we have traipsed through the voting lobbies three or four times it will probably be past 1am before I head off to bed.

    The cabinet is more split than an oak tree struck by lightning.

    Boris Johnson sees this as his chance to bag the top job, so is pushing for a far more extreme Brexit.

    The Bank of England's nine-strong Monetary Policy Committee voted today by 7-2 to keep interest rates on hold at 0.25%, amid sluggish growth and a squeeze on household spending.
