It's fair to say that a lot has happened since May 2015. We've had a Conservative-majority government. We've had Brexit. We've had Trump. We've had an unelected Prime Minister. On Thursday 8th June, we have our chance to change the direction of our country. The only way we can do that is by voting for the Liberal Democrats.
If it was just the belief of the odd backbencher, I'd happily deal with that. As it happens, it's the belief of somebody who, however electorally unlikely, seeks to be Prime Minister. It's also the belief of the leader of my party - a party famous for its secularism and its enthusiastic support for LGBT+ rights, even when it wasn't popular.
With Labour on its knees and the Lib Dems' resurgence underwhelming and not very surgey, the only way to prevent a paradigm-shifting Conservative majority with and a government with a mandate for a nasty and dangerous hard Brexit is for Labour, Lib Dems and Greens to collaborate and back only one candidate in swing seats; the one with the greatest chance of winning.
