    Today marks Guru Nanak Gurpurab, which commemorates the birth of Guru Nanak, the founder of the Sikh faith. Sikh communities across the world will be celebrating the life of a great thinker; someone who stood up for equality, justice and fairness.

    The teachings of Guru Nanak are profoundly significant. As we mark 550 years since his birth, let us reflect on his message of love and community service to others. These teachings continue to resonate with millions today and are a source of inspiration to people of all faiths and those of none.

    Working hard should mean secure work and a decent income, but for too many people that's not the case. In an ever changing workplace, people often need to develop new skills, but the cost of courses and qualifications shuts too many people out.

    Neither the Conservatives or Labour have the answers to these challenges. They are stuck pursuing 20th-century policies that simply won't work in our 21st-century economy. They would take our country backwards.

    A lot of people have noticed something in our online ads… something about "skills wallets".

    So what is a "Skills Wallet"?

    It's a major, new, innovative policy and a key part of our Plan for the Future.

    A Liberal Democrat government will provide every adult with £10,000 to spend on education and training throughout your lives. This "Skills Wallet" is meant to give every person the opportunity to retrain and upskill for jobs that we can't even imagine yet.

    Hard-working doctors and nurses from the EU are fundamental to the NHS. We all have loved ones whose lives have been saved through their skill and dedication.

    But today, the full extent of the Tories' contempt for our dedicated doctors and nurses was revealed.

    Even though the NHS is critically understaffed, the Tories have revealed that part of their nightmarish Brexit plan is to charge EU nurses and doctors £464 to come to the UK to save lives.

    For too many people, things are not working as they should.

    Families are working harder than ever, but far too many are struggling to get by.

    The Conservatives and Labour are taking our country backwards. Their plans don't meet the demands of modern life.

    But the Liberal Democrats have a bold plan to build a brighter future. We want to create a fairer economy where it's easier to be a parent, have a career, and provide for your family.

    Today's high cost of childcare means that too many parents are unable to return to work without risking real financial hardship. With the average cost of 25 hours nursery care for a child under two running to more than £6500 per year, many parents are effectively excluded from work due to the burden of childcare costs.

    We are in the middle of a climate emergency and the world needs urgent action.

    Only the Liberal Democrats have a bold and credible plan to tackle the climate emergency.

    It's front and centre of our plan, because we can't build a brighter future unless we save our planet.

    That's why a Liberal Democrat government will:

    Throughout his career, Boris Johnson has developed a reputation for being less than respectful in the way he speaks (or writes) about women.

    Now, as he faces a general election campaigning against a strong leader and feminist, Jo Swinson, we look back at just a few of the times Boris has shown how he really feels about women.

    Today, Jo Swinson is taking her Leader's Tour of the UK to Scotland to say loud and clear that the Liberal Democrats will protect Scotland's place at the heart of the EU and in the UK.

    A vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to stop Brexit and keep Scotland in the UK. At this general election we're offering voters a real way to stop the chaos.

    Thank you for offering to make some calls for the Liberal Democrats! Before you get started, here are some handy tips and tricks...

    Before the Call

    1. Always smile. A smile can be heard in your voice.

    2. Check if there is more than one person in the household - their names will appear in the boxes marked: "Additional members of the household"

    3. Before you start phoning, click on each person in the household, to check to the age and gender of the people living there. This will give you an idea of who you might be speaking to as soon as someone answers the phone.

    4. If there is no answer, click on "no" against "Were you able to speak to … ", and tick the appropriate box. Please note that you need to record "Not at Home" or "Left message" or "Moved" against EACH member of the household.
