It's not been a good start for Farron, he's now embroiled in controversy for inferring that it's a sin to be gay.  Not what you would expect from a liberal, is it?

When we leave the EU in two years' time we will be free to spend that £350m on the NHS or anything else the government of the day decides.  I really don't understand why Remoaners expect the money to be spent now, when we are still contributing billions to the EU club.

Read the side of the bus again.  It stated we send £350 million a week to the EU, and suggested we fund the NHS instead.  I didn't read that as a direct promise that £350m would definitely be channelled into the NHS, merely one of the possibilities (and, of course, we haven't even left the EU yet).  As I have pointed out previously, the Leave campaign was not, and is not, the government so ...

The NHS wouldn't be in such a parlous state if it wasn't for the disastrous PFI financing deals, almost all of them negotiated while Labour was in government. A Telegraph article from 2015: The NHS is spending more than £3,700 every minute to pay for privately financed hospitals, The Telegraph can disclose. The bill for private finance initiative (PFI) hospital schemes will hit ...

At least all the particiapants on the march yesterday had a jolly nice walk in the London sunshine, even if they did manage to achieve absolutely sod all.

@ShyTalk47 I agree.  It is very tedious trying to have a dialogue with Remoaners who totally fail to understand the difference between the continent of Europe, and a failing political organisation called the EU.

We'll always be in Europe, just not in the EU.
