Lib Dems in the media – three must-watch programmes from yesterday

There are so many media interviews with politicians at the moment. We’re suffering from so much information overload and it’s only Day 4. It’s hard to imagine that we’ll be missing it when it’s all over. Did I say that out loud?

Anyway, here are three must watch/listen events that you might have missed from yesterday.

The first is Willie Rennie’s interview on Good Morning Scotland yesterday. Of course, he got all the usual really tough questions and answered them pretty strongly.

Secondly, Steve Webb represented us really well on the See Hear election debate which you can watch here on iPlayer. One issue that has been raised elsewhere is that no party has signed up to produce a BSL manifesto. Steve said that we might be able to produce a BSL summary. Again he had a very reasoned, practical, liberal approach, talking about providing services that met individual needs and gave individuals choice about what was best for them. He also took a bit of a swipe at Michael Gove’s education policies, talking about need for teachers to be properly trained.
