In the next five years, Britain needs Liberal voices standing up for our place in Europe, for our civil liberties, for human rights and for an open, tolerant and united Britain.

Today, Tim Farron delivered his leader's speech to Liberal Democrat Autumn Conference in Brighton in it, he talked at length about where we, as a country go from here, about Brexit and the politics of fear, division and hate.

He also spoke about the refugee crisis, the NHS and how we ensure it cares for everyone, how to improve our children's education, attacked the Labour party for failing to stand up to the Tories and set out how our party will "do a Trudeau".

Read all the highlights from the speech here:

tim farron Lib Dem The Liberal Democrats are the only party fighting to keep Britain open, tolerant and united. We are the real voice of opposition to the Conservative Brexit Government.

People have been let down for decades by short-termist politicians who put the needs of one part of society above the rest. Now, in the wake of the Brexit vote those divisions are more exposed than ever before. With our country facing huge challenges – from inequality and injustice to an NHS in crisis and an economy in jeopardy – we are left with a reckless, divisive and uncaring Conservative Government and Labour fighting among themselves with no plan for the economy or the country.

Britain's rental system is broken and renters can't get ahead. Tom Brake MP and the Lib Dems are trying to fix that. With our Renters’ Rights Bill we want to shift the power to people who rent and end unfair rip-off letting fees.

The average letting fee is £355, many people have to pay over £500!

  • This is on top of high up-front costs like large deposits and advance rent
  • Some landlords even charge hundreds of pounds simply to renew or add a new name to a contract
  • These contracts are often only for six months
  • The costs mean some people can’t afford to rent a home of their own

Lettings fees are already banned in Scotland, where it has been shown to work successfully.
