The General Election that was called today is a chance for the huge gains that the Liberal Democrats have been making up and down the country to be turned into results in Parliament.
Lib Dem leader Tim Farron said: "This is your chance to change the direction of our country.
"If you want to avoid a disastrous Hard Brexit; if you want to keep Britain in the Single Market; if you want a Britain that is open, tolerant and united, this is your chance.
"Only the Liberal Democrats can prevent a Tory majority."
Council seats have been swinging to the Liberal Democrats by 20–30% in recent months, and the Tories own polls suggesting that they will lose a number of seats to the Liberal Democrats at the election.
With some seats swinging to the Lib Dems by up to 60%, this is a general election where even the safest of seats may change hands.
