Last quote by Tim Farron on British elections 2017

A revival can only happen if we gave ourselves a reason to be ... if we took a risk, a gamble. We chose to adopt the backbone Jeremy Corbyn lacks, the decisiveness Theresa May lacks and stand up for Britain's place in Europe.feedback

All quotes by Tim Farron on British elections 2017

But that's not the future Theresa May is offering you. If you want to know the most revealing thing that has been said during this election, look at Nigel Farage's Twitter. Theresa May is using the exact words and phrases I've been using for twenty years.feedback

And there was definitely nothing on the ballot paper that said we would turn our allies into enemies. Yet here we are, with our government making accusations of our neighbours and even threatening war with Spain. The choices Theresa May makes – and the compromises she negotiates with bureaucrats in Brussels – will affect our children's future for decades to come. My children, your children, Malcolm's grandchildren. In June last year we voted for a departure, but we didn't vote for a destination. So I want you to have your choice over your future.feedback

And, as it happens, I liked Malcolm too. Once he stopped shouting at me. But here's the difference between me and Theresa May – I want Malcolm, and everyone in Preston, and every single one of you, to have your say over what comes next. Nobody knows what Brexit will look like. The choices Theresa May will make will affect your life and our country for decades – your job, your weekly shop, your environment, your safety, where you can travel to and where you can live.feedback

A couple of weeks ago, in Kidlington near Oxford, I met a guy called Malcolm. I say met…he came up to me in the street and started shouting at me. You might have seen it on the news. Or the Internet. In the end we actually got along. But he was angry with me for not getting behind Theresa May and backing Brexit. I think I calmed him down a bit when we spoke, but I don't think I changed his mind.feedback

A vote for the Liberal Democrats can change Britain's future. Imagine a brighter future. You don't have to accept Theresa May and Nigel Farage's extreme version of Brexit that will wreck the future for you, your family, your schools and hospitals. In the biggest fight for the future of our country in a generation, Jeremy Corbyn's Labour has let you down by voting with Theresa May on Brexit – not against her.feedback

I thought in 2010 we had no choice, actually. I wasn't an enthusiast, [but] I thought there was a national emergency, a risk of financial meltdown. Certainly now, there is no appetite. The difference with Theresa May and her approach to Brexit, the extreme Ukip-style Brexit, is so profound there is no way we could possibly work with her.feedback

Theresa May doesn't care about the NHS or social care. People are lying on trolleys in hospital corridors and she has done nothing. The Liberal Democrats will rescue the NHS and social care. We are prepared to be honest with people and say that we will all need to chip in a little more.feedback

If you want a strong opposition to this government, we are the party for you. Labour has failed as an opposition and handed Theresa May a blank cheque to do as she pleases. The voters have delivered their verdict on Jeremy Corbyn.feedback

These reports blow a massive hole in the Conservative Party's arguments. Theresa May chose a divisive hard Brexit, with Labour's help, and now has no idea what to do next. This government has no plan and no clue and this shows it starkly.feedback

These reports have blown a massive hole in the Conservative party's arguments. It's clear this government has no clue and is taking the country towards a disastrous hard Brexit. Theresa May chose a divisive hard Brexit, with Labour's help, and now has no idea what to do next. This election offers us a chance to change the direction of our country, keep Britain in the single market and give the people the final say over what happens next.feedback

Theresa May thinks she's going to be crowned on 8 June and it will be a procession over the next seven weeks, not a contest. The Liberal Democrats will make sure it's a contest. My message to people out there of all political persuasions – as you might not agree with me on absolutely everything – but if you agree with me that Britain needs a strong opposition, you need to back the Liberal Democrats.feedback

This election is your chance to change the direction of our country. There are large numbers of Conservative seats where the Lib Dems are the challengers. Seats up and down the country where the Tories are looking vulnerable, where constituents will question this brutal, dumb hard Brexit. The only way to stop Theresa May winning a majority, the only way to stop a hard Brexit, is by the Lib Dems winning in those seats.feedback
