    Elections are won or lost on Polling Day. One of our target seats in 2017 should have won their seat, but we didn't run a proper GOTV campaign for him and he lost by 2 votes. That wasn't going to happen again.

    GOTV (or get out the vote) is the process of getting those people you have identified as potential Lib Dem voters to put their cross in your box.

    Brexit is the most important issue in a generation. And as Liberal Democrats we have taken on the responsibility of stopping it. We're the only Party united in this aim.

    Last night I messed up. The government squeaked home by just 3 votes in a key amendment. It should have been 1.

    I was not expecting a close vote - up until 8pm, Labour were planning to abstain which would have meant the vote would be lost by hundreds. In fact several Labour MPs voted with the govenment- which is why they won. By the time it became apparent that the vote was going to be close - it was too late to get two of our MPs back in time to vote.

    I'm taking responsibility and redoubling my efforts to stop Brexit.
