Today on the Lib Dem campaign trail

Today, Tim Farron is in Hazel Grove. With Lisa Smart, our candidate there, he will attend a digital inclusion class.

In Scotland, Willie Rennie will be visiting a candlestick maker in North East Fife. He has already visited a butcher and a baker during this campaign.

He will use the visit to condemn the Conservatives for embracing UKIP policies over Brexit and immigration.

He will say:

The Conservative immigration policy is badly thought through and will hit Scottish universities, businesses and our NHS hard.

Nigel Farage himself has said that the Conservatives are adopting his old policies.

The Scottish Conservatives have done nothing to stop this cold and mean-spirited vision for Britain.

The British people don’t have to accept Theresa May and Nigel Farage’s extreme and cold vision of Britain that will wreck the future for you, your family, your schools and hospitals as well as our country’s economy.

Every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to change the direction of this country and secure a brighter and better future.

  • The party needs to be passionately pro-immigration and take it directly to UKIP face to face. Nuttall was left floundering in the debates, especially on immigration. it appears his policy is that he wants a points system which no one will actually qualify for, or some sort of bizarre 1 in 1 out system, where we’d have to wait for someone to retire to Spain before we could get someone in to pick fruit. Insane.

  • “Tim is in Hazel Grove, with Lisa Smart, he will attend a digital inclusion class.” Oh how Cafe Late right on! Totally irrelevant to 99% of voters, just as we will be in June if we don’t change.

  • So only 1% of the population have or even want access to the Internet?

    Do you have a clue what a digital inclusion class is?

    And, if his tub were stronger, … ?

    Opportunity to win the pensioner vote with Theresa May’s new manifesto. Some previous Tory voting pensioners are fuming at it. Winter fuel allowance cuts and uncertainty, “pay for your own care” for a lot of pensioners.

    At the same time though, we need a realistic conversation with pensioners. Labour are promising to defend everything and have no plan for how to pay for it all. It reminds me of the Leave Campaign’s red bus of unrealistic promises, but this time it’s Labours.

    Following yesterday’s manifesto launch by the Tories, I think the Lib Dems should really be attacking the new Social Care policies. I have had several comments from friends in the past 24 hours who are really angered by these plans. Some of these people were going to vote Tory. Surely an attack would play well in seats like Eastbourne, Torbay and Southport?
