If you've woken up too many times with that sinking feeling,

0:09:410:09:44

worried about the direction our country and our world is heading,

embarking upon a hard and divisive Brexit,

0:09:510:09:54

if you're fed up with a Labour Party more interested in fighting

0:09:540:09:56

with itself than standing up to this Government,

0:09:560:09:59

then don't shrug your shoulders, don't look the other way.

0:09:590:10:03

Get involved.

0:10:030:10:04

All right?

0:10:040:10:05

The Liberal Democrats are the real voice of opposition

0:10:060:10:10

and the only party standing up for a Britain that is open,

0:10:100:10:13

tolerant and united.

0:10:130:10:14

0:10:140:10:15

people who believe what you believe are joining the Liberal Democrats.

0:10:150:10:19

You can start by voting for Liberal Democrat councillors on May the 4th.

0:10:240:10:28
