Tim Farron on Andrew Marr show this morning

It’s almost unheard of these days to have Lib Dems on the Andrew Marr show two weeks running. Last week we had Nick Clegg and this morning we have Tim Farron.

He’ll no doubt be talking about the Lib Dem’s unique position on the Article 50 Bill and will no doubt want to continue his criticism of Theresa May for being not very bothered about Donald Trump’s ban on Muslims entering the US.

Watch on BBC1 at 9 am or on iPlayer later.

    Tim Farron was admirably calm but there was a lot to get through, including a Kurdish-born member of the UK House of Commons.
    On the following BBC programme top psephologist from Strathclyde John Curtice reported on current opinion polling in Scotland, some churn, but broadly still 55% – 45%.

  • To slightly misquote that great political commentator Mr Terrance Venables.

    “The boy Tim done good.” 🙂

  • Re the churn, on a later program someone pointed out that while many had voted NO in the Scottish referendum on the assumption that leaving the UK might mean leaving the EU, and would now vote YES if a new Scottish referendum was a way for Scotland to leave the UK and re-enter the EU, 30% of YES voters had voted LEAVE and presumably would vote NO in a new referendum aimed at getting Scotland back into the EU. That may explain both the churn and the fact that the overall numbers are little changed.
