In last night’s leaders’ debate, Tim Farron did what he always does: he held the other parties’ feet to the fire.
With style and substance, he called them out on their failures and communicated a positive vision for Britain’s future.
Theresa May, meanwhile, didn’t even show up – demonstrating her complacency and utter disdain for the British people.
Here are five times Tim Farron came out on top:
When he exploded Twitter by asking where Theresa May was: “She might be outside, sizing up your house”.
When he called out Corbyn for supporting Brexit: “If Jeremy cared, he would not have trooped through the lobbies with the Conservatives and UKIP to trigger Article 50.”
When he scolded UKIP and the Tories for their anti-immigration policies: “The Conservative immigration policy is written to appease UKIP.”
When he celebrated European unity and shared values in the face of terrorism: “We must stand together with our neighbours to fight it.”
When he said the British people’s time would be better spent watching Bake Off than listening to Theresa May: “She can’t be bothered, so why should you?”
