Have the Liberal Democrats selected their candidate yet? Or will that be decided between now and 11th May?

Apologies if I have left anything out.

That would be the Guardian article where the columnist has, amongst other things, written this: "This election will be pure Brexit, up to the blood and guts hilt. One paradox is May’s belief it will set her free to rule with an estimated 126 majority; it will be her curse.
