I hope these children are identified and brought to the UK as soon as humanely possible – it is our moral duty and responsibility. The Dubs scheme was opened after huge pressure both in parliament and from the public – we wanted to see 3,000 unaccompanied child refugees offered sanctuary in Britain. Whilst I welcome the fact the government will now take in some more, this is simply not enough.feedback

Tim Farron quotes

Brexit has an impact on everything, if you are worried there are not enough carers, about the state of the hospital, that your school is not properly funded or there are too few police officers, then leaving the single market is a reason why that is the case. People don't trust politicians at the best of times, nobody believes you can have a better NHS and social care without more money. We have to be really clear that there is a way of getting more money if we as a community make a choice to invest in it together.feedback

The British people deserve to hear the party leaders set out their plans and debate them publicly. What is she scared of?feedback

This election is your chance to change the direction of our country. There are large numbers of Conservative seats where the Lib Dems are the challengers. Seats up and down the country where the Tories are looking vulnerable, where constituents will question this brutal, dumb hard Brexit. The only way to stop Theresa May winning a majority, the only way to stop a hard Brexit, is by the Lib Dems winning in those seats.feedback

We are the only people who are basically saying we could stop Brexit, democratically – certainly a hard Brexit. We are serious about power, we think what the country desperately needs is an electable alternative to the Tories. There isn't anybody else, why shouldn't it be us? We know that's talking big, I understand the ridicule that will be thrown at me for saying those things, but if you don't want to run the country, what are you doing in politics?feedback

He should have gone to Moscow. When he went to Moscow he should have been clear with the Russians just how much we condemn what Assad has done, and what they've done in support of Assad, but try to get them back to the negotiating table. The humanitarian imperative was – and remains – how to prevent the further massacre of the innocent. So the discussion needed to be about no-fly zones, safe corridors and gaining the cooperation of regional powers – all massive challenges, likely to take up the energies of the G7 summiteers.feedback

When Assad first used chemical weapons I didn’t vote to punish him, and I regret that. It’s up to Theresa May now to kickstart the diplomatic process. I am in no doubt that what will end the war in Syria is what ultimately ends every conflict: words and diplomacy, not weapons. But when diplomacy fails and civilians suffer, as they have been doing for many years in Syria, and when they are the victim of weapons that have been outlawed by the international community for their horrific and indiscriminate consequences, then we cannot shy away from proportionate military intervention.feedback

Evil happens when good people do nothing. We cannot stand by, we must act. The attack by American forces was a proportionate response to the barbarous attack by the Syrian government on its own people. The British government rather than just putting out a bland statement welcoming this should now follow it up and call an emergency meeting of the Nato alliance to see what else can be done, be that more surgical strikes or no fly zones. Evil happens when good people do nothing, we cannot sit by while a dictator gasses his own people. We cannot stand by, we must act.feedback

Changing the color of the passport is just another expense on an ever-increasing list of the cost of Brexit.feedback

Unfortunately, May's hardline, anti-immigrant rhetoric to date means that many leave voters will now feel let down by this new, sensible approach. By immediately jumping on the hard-right, Brexiteer bandwagon last June, May has set herself up to either cripple the country or betray public trust. That short-sightedness is now unravelling, but she must now continue to be honest with the British public about the scale of this task, instead of hiding behind nonsense rhetoric.feedback

Blair's speech shows how badly Corbyn's Labour has failed as an opposition. Labour have waved the white flag and given Theresa May a blank cheque for a divisive, hard Brexit.feedback

It is shameful that Theresa May has threatened to withdraw security cooperation from our closest neighbors and allies.feedback

Quitting the single market while keeping immigration at current levels and smearing all criticism of rock-hard Brexit as treachery – that seems to be the plan. Theresa May’s tactic is clear: to accuse anyone who dares question her headlong, blindfold charge towards hard Brexit of being democracy deniers. This despite it looking increasingly likely that the result of her reckless, divisive Brexit will be to leave the single market and not reduce immigration – the very opposite of what Brexiteers pitched to the people.feedback

This is the biggest act of economic self harm in history and some Tory MPs are grasping at any straw they can find to assuage their consciences. They, like Corbyn have waived this through and history will judge them for it.feedback

It's not just that the horse has bolted, Labour opened the stable door.feedback

Just weeks ago, Labour MPs voted against membership of the single market and to give Theresa May a blank cheque for a hard Brexit.feedback

We are here to show solidarity and respect for those who voted leave. We do not believe they wanted this. [Theresa May] does not speak for 52%, she barely speaks for 5%. We are not giving up this week of all weeks. We here are as testament that we refuse to despair. Britain can be better than this.feedback

It is a huge opportunity for a progressive party. This party. All you generals without armies, here's your army.feedback

The Conservative party has been taken over by its own version of Momentum. May's Momentum, the hard Brexiteers. The anti-free trade protectionists. The shrink-the-state extremists. The anti-immigrant, anti-refugee, anti-international aid zealots. It's their party now, and it's hard to be sure whether Theresa May is their leader or their captive.feedback

Some of them might be hoping that the Labour party will sort itself out. I've got news for you, Labour are done.feedback

You are now the supporters of a government that is as anti-business as Jeremy Corbyn. You are now the cheerleaders of a government that is as anti-refugees as Nigel Farage. Theresa May has put at risk the very people who have bankrolled her party's success for years, and she didn't have to. So business should drop the Conservative party like a hot brick. We can gain the seats to rob the Tories of their power to wreck Britain, and by doing so we can change the course of our country.feedback

In a democracy, you respect the result but you do not wave the white flag and give up.feedback

Clearly spent her time with Trump dodging his despicable comments on torture, on women, on Muslims and on Mexicans.feedback

Throwing the gauntlet down against the rest of Europe, the PM is virtually guaranteeing that acrimony rather than compromise will prevail.feedback

We'd vote against Article 50 if our 'red line' is not met ... which is we want to respect the will of the people and that means they must have their say on a referendum on the terms of the deal.feedback

We believe that what started with democracy last June, which we totally respect, must not now end up with a stitch up, with a deal being imposed on the British people that absolutely nobody voted for.feedback

Given the strict two year timetable of exiting the EU once Article 50 is triggered, it is critical that the government now lay out their negotiating (stance) to parliament before such a vote is held.feedback

So far May's team have been all over the place when it comes to prioritizing what is best for Britain, and it's time they pull their socks up and start taking this seriously.feedback

She has come a long way since we were on the hustings together in north west Durham.feedback

I accept the result but by golly I don't agree with it.feedback

If we were just being asked to bomb Syria I'd be voting no, I'd be out there demonstrating in between the speeches, I'd be signing up to those emails from the Stop the War Coalition. But this is not just a case of bombing, this is standing with the United Nations and the international community to do what is right by people who are the most beleaguered of all.feedback
