Ahead of May’s local elections, here’s the Liberal Democrat pitch as broadcast on national TV:
It’s time to demand better for Britain – elect Lib Dem councillors on 2 May to fight for your local community.
These past few months have been nothing short of a national humiliation.
For nearly three years, the government has used a wafer-thin referendum majority to sow division in our towns, our cities and even in our families.
But those who seek to divide us will never win. We demand better than Brexit.
Labour and the Conservatives are fighting amongst themselves, and they have taken their eye off the ball when it comes to local services.
When it comes to local elections, you want someone who understands your community.
Someone who understands how important quality social care, strong local schools and well funded police and hospitals are to your local area.
We are campaigning for more resources to fight rising crime, to tackle homelessness and deliver the public services we all need.
And we are winning. Liberal Democrats have been winning council seats from Labour, the Tories and even UKIP.
We stand strong, with over a hundred thousand members and supporters, and a quarter of a million people backing our campaign for an exit from Brexit.
So when you vote, vote for the candidate that’s going to get things done for your local community.
Vote for the party who’s going to stop Brexit.
Vote Liberal Democrat.
Bonus: here’s how to make your vote even more powerful.
