    There is a growing sense that the current political system in the UK is not fit for purpose. Many newspapers have written about the broken system and the lack of accountability in Westminster to the demands of the citizens. This flawed democracy has an impact on many areas, including how we deal with the climate emergency as a country.

    A complaint has been made about Ed Davey's campaign's conduct in its communication with members as to their voting intentions, specifically that they instructed canvassers not to disclose the identity of the campaign they were actually calling on behalf in calls made on the 11th and 14th of July 2020.

    Throughout this terrible disease, people have not only faced heartbreaking loss of life, but also crushing anxiety over their livelihoods.

    Lockdown has been necessary to prevent an even greater catastrophe, but the economic shutdown has thrown millions of people into financial hardship.

    Liberal Democrats have been fighting to make sure people do not feel left behind as the country slowly recovers. We cannot allow this to create a new wave of inequality in Britain; the damage done to businesses and jobs falls harder on some than others.

    Like many young people and students in the early 2000s, I first joined the Liberal Democrats because of Charles Kennedy's brave stance on the invasion of Iraq.

    Charles played a courageous role in steadfastly opposing military intervention, putting both his and the party's reputation on the line. I joined a million others marching on the streets in protest, pleading with Blair's Government to change course.

    It was fun and games for the first meeting of the new unitary council on 15 July, but there was bad news for the climate change crisis.

    Councillors had to meet virtually because of Covid-19, and the meeting began half an hour late because of inevitable technical problems - not a good start and the technical problems continued throughout. It's not helped either by having 200 councillors taking part - that number is set to reduce to 147 after next May's elections, but it's still too many for all to get a chance to participate properly.
    Anyway, as a shadow portfolio holder it was possible for me to ask some questions about what is happening with Covid-19 in Buckinghamshire, especially about care homes and about Test, Track and Trace. So that was useful, but it was frustrating for other opposition members who did not get to ask their questions or make their points.
