    Nice manifesto.

    Very low tax increases DECLARED, potential breakthrough is taxation of weed, that will raise more than £1 bln but always best to be careful with such estimates.

    2nd referendum is a must - any deal with EU must be approved by it!

    Vote Lib Dems!

    17 million voted to leave. How many now regret it?

    How many didn't vote because they thought Brexit was never going to happen?

    16 million voted to remain. How many will now turn to Lib Dem just for that single pledge?

    Vote Lib Dem

    If they gave more detail the Tories would steal it to stay in power.

    Look at Labour's policies on energy caps from Ed Miliband.

    If they hold another referendum with a majority voting in favour of remain then it is the people who are reversing the decision, not a party.

    What to blame someone? Blame the Tory party for holding a general election when they did not need to during the remaining A50 timeline.

These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Jeez, some of you need to get a dose of reality - or even realpolitik. May called the election to neutralise the rebels in her own party that were threatening to derail the negotiation. Nothing else.

    As for Lib Dems, you may as well vote for the MRL or a random independent.

    QED...

    By the way, IR35 is not going away and was not introduced by the Tories (in fact they prevented it for several years pre-Bliar and the Moron). Osborne in isolation made the decision not to repeal or reform it based on skewed advice from the Treasury, not good economics or commercial reality. But let's not let history get in the way of pathetic point scoring.
