    Our printers are working through the night to create mailings to 2.8 million people across the UK - telling them why they need to vote Liberal Democrat in the European elections.

    We're off to a flying start thanks to your generous donations.

    THANK YOU.

    In both the local and European elections, we have a real story to tell. Your support enables us to tell our story to millions online and offline.

    Our campaigning up and down the country is delivering more Lib Dem voters in the local elections and more votes to stop Brexit.

    But as the EU election has been called so suddenly, it means we don't know if we can raise the funds to keep campaigning at this high level.

    The Liberal Democrats are the ONLY pro-Remain party with the capacity to deliver a European election campaign on such short notice - here's what the papers are saying:

    Responding to the Scottish Government's new recommendations for standardised testing, Scottish Liberal Democrat education spokesperson Tavish Scott said:

    "The last thing Scottish teachers want is yet more guidance to plough through. So much for reducing bureaucracy in the classroom.

    "The government's own review of testing has not yet reported so why would they throw out these recommendations? Once again, the government makes it up as they go along."

    Whether Brexit ever happens or not, what is certain is this week we will commemorate the original Exodus some 3,332 years ago.

    The evening of April 19th marks the beginning of the eight-day Jewish festival of Passover (Pesach) - a religiously significant period which commemorates the Israelite's journey out of Egypt after years of slavery and bondage under ancient Egyptian rule. An epic journey from slavery to freedom.

    Responding to revelations of "shocking" treatment of patients at the Carseview mental health unit in Tayside, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:

    "These horrific reports suggest patients are being mistreated in a potentially life-threatening fashion.

    Local election campaigns around the country are going well with just under two weeks left. Like many of you, our home has moved into our regular election machine, and our driveway is the Watford garden poster factory!

    If you haven't yet, make sure to ask your local team for a garden poster (or window poster if you cannot have a garden one) and show your friends and neighbours that the Lib Dems are winning here!

    Whether it's young people taking time off school or the Commons' naked protestors: they are right. We face a climate crisis.

    Liberal Democrats should provide the emergency plan. In 3 parts.

    • UK-wide action to green ourselves.
    • Action to decarbonise capitalism - starting with the City of London.
    • And an international green new deal - where richer countries support poorer countries.

    Today, 50 years on from the UK extending the franchise to 18-year olds, British politics is still blighted by democratic inequality. This is particularly stark in the case of the 3.6 million EU citizens living in the UK. In just under three weeks these nationals will have a vote in local elections, but this is a right they are denied in General Elections and referendums. Fifty years on from giving more people the vote we still have a long way to go.

    The Liberal Democrats will fight these elections as an unapologetically pro-European Party campaigning hard for People's Vote with an option to remain in the the EU.

    We are determined to give a voice to the millions of people who demand better than Brexit Britain.

    Today we've announced a strong, diverse mix of candidates, from those who've joined the Liberal Democrats recently to those with long experience of the European Parliament.
