    Scottish Liberal Democrat health spokesperson Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP has today said that mental health services at NHS Tayside have "catastrophically" failed patients and their families, after an independent inquiry at the health board revealed frequent use of restraint, patient concerns not being taken seriously until they tried to take their own lives and delayed decision-making.

    Following the board meeting of the Scottish Police Authority, Scottish Liberal Democrat justice spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP said:

    "While there have undoubtedly been improvements in the way that the SPA and Police Scotland are run, they were starting from a low baseline. Allowing the SPA and Police Scotland to mark their own homework was what got them into trouble in the first place. Susan Deacon should not begrudge elected representatives the opportunity to ask questions about reform of our policing organisations."

    Tomorrow, my first ever vote is going to be a vote for the Liberal Democrats to stop Brexit.

    Just in case the 'Bollocks to Brexit' campaign slogan didn't make it clear enough; every vote for the Lib Dems is a vote to Stop Brexit and remain in the European Union. They're the biggest remain party and were the first to call for a People's Vote back in 2016.

    I'm proud to have been the anti-Brexit Spokesperson for a party that has been unequivocal about Brexit for three years.

    Meanwhile, like many people, my colleagues and I have attempted to decipher Corbyn's riddles and work out exactly what the Labour position is on Brexit.

    Throughout our history, the Liberal Democrats have lead the way on green issues. The 1979 Liberal/SDP manifesto called for a "war on waste and pollution" and highlighted "the need to reserve the natural environment for future generations."

    Forty years later, our 2019 European manifesto is no less radical. Just last week, Vince Cable announced our commitment to campaign for an EU-wide ban on fracking.

    Tim Farron, Layla Moran and Vince Cable spoke at our last rally of the EU elections in London this evening. And they were joined by a special guest - Andrew MacKinlay, former Labour MP for Thurrock.

    Theresa May got up and gave another Brexit speech earlier and confirmed what we already knew. She's going to put the Withdrawal Agreement Bill to Parliament - with some minor changes.

    Amongst those, she offered a vote on a People's Vote - but only if the bill passes its second reading.

    Liberal Democrats are clear. We want to stop Brexit. We won't vote for any deal that doesn't promise to give the people the final say.

    Following the news that another police force will conduct a review after Police Scotland found there was "wholly unsatisfactory and unprofessional" conduct within the former Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency, Scottish Liberal Democrat justice spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP commented:

    "These events resembled scenes from Life on Mars. Chaotic filing was followed by officers being sent to buy an incinerator and petrol, taking documents to a wasteland by a river, then setting alight to them in a car park.

    On a campaign visit to Water Ski & Wakeboard Scotland in Dunfermline, which saw him take to the water to illustrate the "wave of support" buoying Liberal Democrat candidates up and down the country, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has said voting for a Liberal Democrat candidate on Thursday is a vote to make the chaos of Brexit stop.
