There was a time this election cycle when I was inclined to vote for the Liberal Democrats. But when truth, honesty and integrity are increasingly vulnerable, we need now more than ever to send our politicians a clear signal: stay true to your principles, and tell us what you really think. We have suffered enough harm from lies in the last few years. Voting for Tim Farron is only voting for more.

I, for one, am quite excited about the new Pope. It is easy to raise questions about his age - he is only 10 years younger than Ratzinger - but there are signs that there is something to like for everyone. For one, he marks the end of a long period of European dominance: it is sometimes hard to remember that half of the early Popes were from the Middle East and Africa.
