LIBERAL DEMOCRAT Leader Jo Swinson was left deeply embarrassed after Sky News presenter Sophy Ridge displayed a poll from the party’s campaign literature.

The poll presented the Liberal Democrats in front of Labour in North East Somerset. Nevertheless, the question which was displayed in small print at the bottom asked participants to expect no parties other than the Liberal Democrats and Conservatives to be “competitive”.

Sophy Ridge described the survey as “entirely misleading” and “embarrassing” for the Liberal Democrat leader.

Jo Swinson also sparked an angry backlash after spitting the dummy when she accused British TV broadcasters of being “sexist” for leaving her out of the election debates.

Childish name-calling, spite and misdirection seem to be the order of the day for the Lib Dems in this next election.
