‘Like the EU referendum campaign, there will be lots of promises that cannot be kept made during this campaign,’ Tim Farron, the leader of the party said. ‘For instance, us promising we are able to run the country. I mean if we win something will have gone seriously wrong. Look at what it led to when Nick Clegg was deputy prime minister.’
Mr Farron told a group of supporters, gathered in a bus shelter for the manifesto launch, that this election was the most important in recent years. ‘It is important that people consider what kind of terrible state they want the country to be in after 8 June,’ he said.
Mr Farron quickly added he did not think voting Lib Dem was a sin.
