Jo’s take on the #itvdebate

Jo Swinson has taken to Twitter to make her points in the Leaders’ debate from which she has been excluded. A shout out to the people who so quickly cut together excerpts from the debate and clips of Jo putting the alternative view for people to share on social media.

The press office got sassy again:

After the debate, Jo said:

People watching at home deserve so much better than what was on offer tonight.

Both people on that stage want Brexit and there was no one on that stage arguing to remain in the European Union.

Staying in the EU is better for our economy, better for our environment, and better for our NHS.

A brighter future is possible, but it is not on offer from either of the two old, tired parties.

And her closing statement:

She didn’t waste her time during the debate wither, doing a WhatsApp interview with Buzzfeed. Her undisputed status as the Queen of Gifs is clear.

Her half time analysis was pretty brutal:

    Not you as well, Jo? We had enough of Johnson going on about Brexit. As for Corbyn’s prevarication, he is surely entitled to do what Harold Wilson did in 1975. Let the people decide. In fact I thought that this was what the Lib Dems were all about a while back. One quote from Johnson had me in stitches, when he said that the royal family was ‘beyond reproach’. I didn’t think much of the ‘moderator’ either.

    Jo Swinson did not get much time to think about the ‘desert island’ question.
    The Lib Dem MEPs were very pleased to meet Naomi Long MEP.
    Maybe she will be back at Westminster soon.
