So much for the Liberal Democrats, then.

First we had this:

Then we had this:

And now we’ve been given this:

But look at the language Tim Farron uses.

“If you want to prevent hard Brexit… then we have this wonderful opportunity of an incredibly clear message that nobody else has.”

What clear message is that, Tim? That you’re not championing the ‘Remainer’ cause any more? That you’re not opposing Brexit at all?

And… hey, if you’re suddenly okay with Brexit, doesn’t that mean you might have been economical with the truth about your opinion on another coalition with the Tories?

This Twitter user thinks so:

And, let’s face it, the Liberal Democrats have ‘form’ when it comes to making deals behind closed doors, long before admitting they have done so.

The 2010 coalition deal was hammered out in March of that year – two months before the general election, according to Rob Wilson, Conservative MP for Reading East, in his book Five Days To Power. Read about it in this Vox Political article.

And there was no mention in that deal of the Liberal Democrats’ major pledge of the time – to abolish student tuition fees.

So the Liberal Democrats campaigned for two months ahead of the election with a promise that they knew they were going to break.

And now Tim Farron is campaigning ahead of the election with a promise not to seek power in a new coalition with the Conservatives.

You know he’ll break it, if he gets the chance.

So much for the Liberal Democrats, then.

Isn’t it a relief that we’re all voting for the Labour Party – an organisation that, under Jeremy Corbyn, will actually keep its promises?
