    When I was little, my grandfather got involved in amateur dramatics. He wasn't very good, but I mention it because the role that I best remember him playing was that of a judge in a play called "Breaking the Code", about the life and trial of Alan Turing. It was important to grandpa because he had always thought of Alan Turing as a national hero. He felt that his intelligence work at Bletchley had turned the tide of the war in the north Atlantic, where my grandfather was an officer on a destroyer. Grandpa felt that, despite his heroism, Alan Turing had been terribly ill used by the British establishment and the judiciary and that what happened to him ultimately brought about his destruction.

    Elections weren't just being held for Parliament last night - there were also two Council by-elections, a delayed election in Southwark (with three seats up for grabs!) and a by-election in Doncaster.

    In London Bridge & West Bermondsey, we pulled off a stunning win - winning all three seats that were up for grabs.

    Today, the Government has announced that they will be backing my Bill to make 'upskirting' a specific sexual offence.

    I've been working closely with the tenacious campaigner Gina Martin and her lawyer Ryan Whelan on the details of law reform with the Ministry of Justice - supported by hundreds of activists who have lobbied the relevant ministers for a change in the law on upskirting.

    I want to start by thanking Lucy Salek, our wonderful candidate in Lewisham East, and her team, including the many of you who have helped, either visiting Lewisham or helping remotely by phone. We have sent a strong message to both Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn that we will continue to fight against Brexit, and insist on a people's final say on the deal.

    With all the privacy notices flooding your inbox, you'll know the UK Data Protection Act passed into law.

    We would like to say a big thank you to everyone involved in training, webinars, the Spring Clean, and getting ready for GDPR. We could not have done it without your help.

    The bad news is that we always have to work within the new regulations now!

    Over the last five weeks, hundreds of Liberal Democrat activists have been hard at work campaigning in Lewisham East, for our fantastic candidate, Lucy Salek.

    And last night, their hard work was rewarded - we quadrupled our share of the vote and delivered a 19% swing against Labour - the largest swing against a Labour opposition since 1983.
