Today is #internationalyouthday . This year the focus is on Youth and Mental Health.

Lib Dems believe that mental health should be taken as seriously as physical health. That's why we have increased funding to help people with mental health problems. #mentalhealth

We have no MPs Parliament is dissolved.
We still have a government, all Ministers are still in their jobs.
I am not sure what more you think 8.6% of MPs could achieve...

Our thoughts go out to the people of South Africa who will be left heartbroken by this sad news.

Every so often history produces an individual whose message is universal, and Nelson Mandela will be mourned and missed on every continent around the globe. The hope he offered was enough to unite races; it bridged cultures and transcended generations; and it could heal the deepest divides.

That hope must now live on. Nelson Mandela's legacy will continue to burn brightly, there is little doubt about that. But our greatest tribute to him will be our commitment to equality, humanity and peace - the values for which he very literally put his life on the line."

Read about my trip to #Mumbai where I announced a new exchange programme for young people and a new award recognising those who have helped improve ties between UK and India.
As Nick Clegg leads the first major trade mission to India since Prime Minister Narendra Modi was elected in May, he writes about his trip to Mumbai.

Good news for pub landlords:
Thousands of pub landlords will be protected against unfair treatment and hardship under new plans unveiled today. The announcement follows a long-running campaign by Lib Dem MP Greg Mulholland, who was one of the first MPs to highlight the unfair treatment of landlords tied to pub firms. Two weeks ago he presented a petition of more than 45,000 signatures to introduce a pubs adjudicator.

When I mention root cause about sexual equality being the issue then an example of the issue that needs to be tackled and fix many things in the process http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-27614359  You ever read about men being stoned to death by the family - no.  

It is all very well taking in the Worlds culture, but we have to give back as well, think about that a little bit +Nick Clegg .  Gander needs to be made irrelevant on many levels, but it is a World problem, not a local UK political party sacrificing itself at the expense of itself and the people that voted for it for change.

Sexual equality is an issue, so are the repercussions with mutilation being just one of the side-effects.  Deal with the root cause and with that, help those that deal with it, don't step upon those toes and weaken efforts thru a dividing of donations, focus and results.  That mess already happening to UK politics, do not take that into the real World, however well intentioned.

Help those and assist those who already do this work, don't compete.
