    "For many people, including myself, The Queen was an ever-fixed mark in our lives. As the world changed around us and politicians came and went, The Queen was our nation's constant.

    While Liz Truss spent the summer focused on Tory infighting, families and pensioners have been worried sick about how they'll pay their bills. They have been left in limbo by her refusal to set out a clear plan on tackling soaring energy bills.

    Today is Ukrainian Independence Day.

    Liberal Democrats stand with the people of Ukraine.
