Welcome to my day: 13 June 2022 – take a deep breath (and a glass of Sekt) and carry on…

Dobré ráno! Liberal Democrat Voice is brought to you today from Starý Smokovec, in the Slovak Tatras, where your intrepid Day Editor is spending the day.

Slovakia has benefited from its accession to the European Union, with the average Slovak worker earning 70% more than they did twenty years ago.

These comments are an insult to every family that suffered in lockdown while Downing Street partied.

Boris Johnson’s Conservatives have got something else coming if they think the public has moved on from this shameful scandal.

Boris Johnson broke the rules he asked us all to obey then repeatedly lied about it. Conservative MPs must rediscover their moral compass and get rid of him.
