    The Welsh Liberal Democrats have long supported the Swansea Tidal Lagoon, it is to our disappointment that the UK Government refuse to do likewise. These latest proposals should be fully considered to see if they're another way to secure support for this vital project.

    The Swansea Tidal Lagoon has the potential to make Wales a world leader in green energy, create thousands of skilled jobs across Wales and play a major role in helping us combat climate change.

    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."

    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.

    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.

    What you do in the last few hours matters massively.

    There's been a clear pattern emerging in recent opinion polls. Labour is sinking lower and lower - and the Lib Dems are on the up:

    WARNING: there are naughty words ahead. Stray political editors from the Daily Express may find their sensibilities offended!

    We launched our EU manifesto yesterday: Bollocks to Brexit. It's as bold as the name suggests - committing us to:

    ✔︎ A People's Vote
    ✔︎ Defending our fishing rights from being traded away
    ✔︎ A carbon-neutral EU by 2050
