    Every year, I spend this day thinking about my dad who fought in Burma during the Second World War.

    Each and every one of us has a connection to the Armed Forces - even if you don't have a family member who served in the past, or who serves now, I can safely say that you will have benefited from the Forces' commitment to our safety.

    We've been inspired by some of the tremendous efforts that our party activists have taken over the past few months.

    Coronavirus has hit communities hard across the country. Early on in the lockdown, as a party we decided to turn our traditional campaigning army into a non-political community taskforce, with the aim of helping the most vulnerable during this difficult time.

    EU liberal leader Guy Verhofstadt's Twitter game is legendary and he is still gunning against Brexit with both barrels. In this recent tweet, shared over 10,000 times, he reminds us of the absurdly expensive costs of Brexit that will soon exceed the costs of our entire budget contributions in the 47 years since the UK first joined. If you are not already following him on social media then we recommend to do so.

    It's been a month since the murder of George Floyd. His death has sparked a global conversation about the discrimination faced by black people every day.

    Other times, you struggle to find words to explain the deep hurt, so you stay silent.

    Black women have had to deal with both gender and racial discrimination all their lives. To us, the current discussion is nothing new; it is our everyday experience, often only discussed when amongst your black friends. These forums are where we talk about the constant policing and judgement of everything from our hair, our clothes, our body and of course, the tone of our voice. Dealing with microaggressions (covert, subtle slights which demean, belittle and ridicule marginalised groups) is normal for us. The list is endless; from being mistaken for another black woman at work and at Party Conference, to being told "you're pretty... for a dark-skinned woman" or that you should stand for election in a posh area because "you speak quite well".

    George Floyd was murdered by police in Minneapolis a month ago today.

    Seeing his last few moments and hearing his final words broadcast across the globe has sparked a renewed revulsion at continuing racial injustice and focused attention on the Black Lives Matter movement.

    For those of us who do not have to confront racism and discrimination every day in anything we do it has been a long overdue wake up call that we still have work to do to wipe out inequality in this country.
