LibLInk Kishan Devani: Jo Swinson, our future Prime Minister

It is evident that Jo can very much be our next Prime Minister.  In her acceptance speech, Jo made a convincing pitch for swing voters — repeatedly lumping Johnson with Nigel Farage and Donald Trump. Jo’s passionate, bold and strong vision takes on the weak and feeble outlooks of both Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn. Taking them both on directly and unashamedly;

Jo said: “I rage when Boris Johnson is more interested in sucking up to Donald Trump, than standing up for British values of decency, equality, and respect. Tomorrow, we expect Boris Johnson will take the keys to Number 10 – but he has shown time and time again that he isn’t fit to be Prime Minister. Boris Johnson has only ever cared about Boris Johnson. Just ask Sir Kim Darroch or Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe. Whether it is throwing people under the bus or writing a lie on the side of one: Britain deserves better than Boris Johnson.”

“And as for Corbyn’s Labour, I’ll make this quick. Any party that can’t decide where it stands on the biggest issue facing our country in generations, doesn’t deserve my time, and doesn’t deserve your vote.”

We as a country need a Prime Minister who will rise to the challenges we face, not hide away from them. Someone who has no limit to their ambition not only for the Liberal Democrats but for every individual in our country. Jo has the ability to lead a party of government, she is able speak to the whole country, no matter how people voted three years ago. She can reach to communities from Norfolk to Newport, St Ives to Shetland, Gloucester to Gateshead.
