    An announcement by the Labour Party that it would invest £45bn in the NHS and social care over five years as well as protect pensions could be rendered meaningless by Brexit, Liberal Democrats have said.

    Treasury analysis from 2016 estimated that the form of Brexit supported by the Labour and Conservative parties - a negotiated bilateral agreement as opposed to membership of the single market - would rob public services of £36bn EACH YEAR. A botched Brexit could cost the Exchequer up to £45 billion a year. The government has neither formally rejected this analysis nor commissioned new figures since the referendum.

    Dr Brian Mathew's comments on today's deselection of the UKIP Parliamentary Candidate for North Wiltshire.

    "Any racist comments are totally unacceptable. The fact that UKIP had selected a candidate that allegedly took this action speaks volumes about UKIP itself. Further, if you consider that UKIP have had candidates step aside in hundreds of seats across the country in order to support the Conservative Party's 'Hard Brexit',this tells voters all they need to know about the direction of the Conservative Party.
