Following Jo Swinson's performance during the 7-way BBC Election Debate, Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said:
“Jo Swinson demonstrated clearly that the Liberal Democrats are the best choice for voters who want to stop Brexit and build a brighter future.
“While the stand-ins for Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn argued over whose version of Brexit would be more damaging and whose spending plans are least credible, Jo Swinson made the clear, positive case for remaining in the EU.
“Boris Johnson is hiding from the voters, trying to dodge accountability for his lies, his extreme views and his disastrous Brexit plans. He doesn’t deserve to be Prime Minister, and only the Liberal Democrats can stop him by winning seats from the Conservatives.”
