Dozens of English councils discriminate against children with autism, legal experts say.
Ed Davey MP 🔶🇪🇺 #StayHomeSaveLiveThis is such an important story. children with autism are being treated unfairly and unlawfully by councils across the country. It needs to stop. We need to build a more caring society.
It remains possible a 'basic' agreement could be reached but only if the EU agrees to give ground in the autumn.
Ed Davey MP 🔶🇪🇺 #StayHomeSaveLiveThe govt is failing to secure a trade deal with the EU & with the US, yet the PM still refuses to extend the transition period even if we face a 2nd covid19 peak this winter. This is a reckless govt that seems determined to put lives & livelihoods at risk.
The PM has refused the Russia report’s call to investigate possible interference by Moscow in the 2016 EU referendum.
Ed Davey MP 🔶🇪🇺 #StayHomeSaveLiveThe answer to the question 'Did Russia influence our elections?' cannot be 'I don't want to know.'
If we do not even investigate possible Russian interference, we give them the green light to do it in future.

Ed Davey MP 🔶🇪🇺 #StayHomeSaveLiveProud of the fantastic work that @amcarmichaelMP has done to highlight the plight of Uyghur Muslims in China. We must debate this in Parliament, so we can look at how the UK can work internationally to hold China to account.
Two thirds of elderly patients discharged from hospitals to care homes at the height of the pandemic were not tested for coronavirus, figures obtained by The Times reveal.As many as 16,000 people
Ed Davey MP 🔶🇪🇺 #StayHomeSaveLiveThe crisis in our care homes has been a tragedy for so many families.
The Govt let thousands of untested people back to care homes.
There must be an independent inquiry so that we can hold the govt to account and never make these mistakes again.

With jobs losses rising, this will be a disaster for our economy
take back control = tax business more
Businesses will discover details of customs regime after Brexit on Monday
Ed Davey MP 🔶🇪🇺 #StayHomeSaveLiveWhy would we need to ‘get ready for brexit’ if you had already got brexit done?
And why would we want to spend millions of pounds on a propaganda campaign when we could give that money to people who have received no government help? #ExcludedUK
In this opinion article, acting Lib Dem leader Ed Davey says Boris Johnson should have sacked the Housing Secretary by now - but he does not possess enough leadership
Ed Davey MP 🔶🇪🇺 #StayHomeSaveLiveAny Minister with a conscience would have resigned by now. Any Prime Minister showing a modicum of leadership would have sacked him.
But sadly, we are governed by people who appear to lack both.

Exclusive: Less than 1 per cent of judges are black and just 6.3 per cent are from any ethnic minority
Ed Davey MP 🔶🇪🇺 #StayHomeSaveLiveThese figures I unearthed on the lack of diversity in our justice system are absolutely shocking.
It is no good saying #BlackLivesMatter if we are making zero progress on getting more diversity in every area of our society.
The Foreign Secretary moved to clarify after saying he would not repeat the Black Lives Matter gesture - popularised by US quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2016 - and suggested it came from a hit TV show
Ed Davey MP 🔶🇪🇺 #StayHomeSaveLiveThe fact our Foreign Secretary, who is also now going to be in charge of our aid budget, is totally ignorant about a global movement against racism is as shocking as it is concerning.

Ed Davey MP 🔶🇪🇺 #StayHomeSaveLiveAnother day and another broken promise from a PM out of his depth. NHS hereos are putting their lives on the line every day.
It was immoral that NHS staff had to pay the surcharge in the first place, it is disgusting that they continue to pay it now.
UK economy shrinks by 20.4% in April, the biggest decline on record, as full impact of lockdown is felt.
Ed Davey MP 🔶🇪🇺 #StayHomeSaveLiveThese stats confirm we face the most serious economic challenge in generations
Not a time to exit the world’s largest market
Not a time to increase trade barriers
Not a time to deny business skills they need with a damaging new immigration system
Canterbury MP Rosie Duffield has apologised and says she has been "attempting to navigate a difficult personal situation".
Ed Davey MP 🔶🇪🇺 #StayHomeSaveLiveHuge respect for Rosie Duffield: she made a mistake, apologises & takes the consequences
As did Neil Ferguson & Catherine Calderwood
So what’s so special about Cummings, @BorisJohnson?
Your arrogance undermines public health. Sack him.
Data since start of Covid-19 crisis shows almost 60,000 additional deaths, a fifth higher than usual
Ed Davey MP 🔶🇪🇺 #StayHomeSaveLiveGermany’s low death rate is where the UK should be
From #PPEshortage to shielding #CareHomes, the UK govt was late, stumbling, and slapdash
Yes, we need an inquiry; right now we simply want them to better protect people
