Vince also says that he will carry on the Liberal Democrat record of being unafraid to swim against the tide, such as:

  • fighting for LGBT rights, including same sex marriage, secured when the Lib Dems were in government;
  • leading political opposition to the Iraq War;
  • warning about the 2007 credit crunch and 2008 financial crisis and then rebuilding the economy through initiatives like the industrial strategy and Green Investment Bank; and
  •  the only main national party speaking for millions of voters who oppose a hard Brexit that would damage the economy.
