    The Liberal Democrats have demanded the government publish a highly embarrassing report on air pollution before the election. Ed Davey, Lib Dem former cabinet minister for Energy and Climate Change, has said the government is reportedly blocking release of its report into air pollution because it is worried the "shaming" findings would become a major election issue.

    Responding to reports Donald Trump will put the EU ahead of the UK in trade talks, Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron said:

    "This is a devastating blow to Theresa May's hard Brexit plans.

    "Yet another claim by the Brexiteers, that Britain would be at the front of the queue for a trade deal with US, now lies in tatters.

    "Theresa May should now make clear she will prioritise a trade deal with the EU over one with Trump.

    "It's not too late to prevent a hard Brexit and keep Britain in the Single Market.

    "This election is a chance to change the direction of our country. "

    So, in the end, Theresa May's decision to break her word on a snap election was as disingenuous as it was inevitable: with the Brexit press braying in support, Jeremy Corbyn as inept as ever, Parliament reduced to a supine whimper, what did she have to lose? So she confected some paper-thin excuses about the dastardly habit of opposition parties opposing the Government, took a bow from the sycophants in the Right-wing press and now hopes to sail effortlessly towards a world free of all meaningful opposition after June 8.

    Tim Farron has ruled out doing any coalition deals with Theresa May or Jeremy Corbyn after the election.

    Every Liberal Democrat vote and every Liberal Democrat MP elected is a challenge to Theresa May's Hard Brexit agenda. In the next parliament we will fight to stop a disastrous Hard Brexit, keep Britain in the Single Market and make sure people have their say on the final Brexit deal in a referendum with remain as an option.

    In 2 weeks most of the UK has a chance to vote in an election.

    The 2017 elections are a national opportunity to push back against hard Brexit. Unlike so much else that supporters and opponents of Brexit can cite as evidence of public support for their side, the success or failure of each side is measurable, public and real.

    Liberal Democrat former Business Secretary, Vince Cable who famously predicted the credit crunch, has warned that the recent fall in retail sales are a sign the "post-Brexit honeymoon" for the UK economy is coming to an end.

    Figures out today have shown UK retail sales saw their biggest quarterly fall in seven years in March, as rising prices since the Brexit vote hit consumer spending.

    Local Liberal Democrats have condemned remarks by Theresa May and Philip Hammond that suggest the Conservatives will drop their commitment to the triple lock on pensions and might also hike taxes and National Insurance.

    Alistair Carmichael MP, Liberal Democrats shadow first secretary of state, said:

    "This is May and Hammond admitting that the cupboard is bare thanks to their disastrous hard Brexit.

    "Liam Byrne famously waited until after the 2010 election to admit there was no money left. The Conservatives are causing so much carnage to the economy they have had to admit the country is broke before election day.

    "Theresa May's refusal to guarantee the triple lock is yet another massive U-turn by the Prime Minister. Conservative high command is clearly in total disarray as it attempts a handbrake turn every day, including on such major issues as immigration, foreign aid and the single market.

    "The triple lock was a Liberal Democrat achievement in the coalition government and pensioners should now realise that their pensions are not safe in Conservative hands.

    "Workers struggling with falling living standards and a Brexit squeeze will see that the Chancellor is already hinting that he will hike taxes. With the economy facing a £200bn Brexit black hole over the next 15 years, no wonder the Tories plan to raise taxes and slash spending.

    "It just shows you can't have a hard Brexit and a safe pension."

    The President of the European Parliament has said Britain would be welcomed back with open arms if voters changed their minds about Brexit on 8 June.

    This directly contradicts Theresa May's claim that 'there is no turning back' after Article 50.

    Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron said: "This shows it's not too late to prevent a divisive, hard Brexit.

    Theresa May will reportedly include her Hard Brexit negotiating priorities in the Conservative General Election manifesto to lock Remain-backing Tory MPs and the House of Lords into backing her stance.

    The manifesto will include guarantees to leave the Single Market, end the free movement of European Union citizens, and to end the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.
