The future of Britain is in your hands.

0:00:100:00:13

Are you happy with the direction our country is going?

0:00:130:00:16

A Conservative landslide,

0:00:160:00:17

a weak Labour Party failing to oppose their damaging hard Brexit,

0:00:170:00:22

or the deep cuts to our NHS and schools.

0:00:220:00:25

There is another choice.

0:00:250:00:26

The Liberal Democrats are the strong opposition Britain needs.

0:00:260:00:30

We will stand up against a damaging hard Brexit

0:00:300:00:33

and for our NHS and schools.

0:00:330:00:36

You can change Britain's future. It's in your hands.

0:00:360:00:39

Imagine if Theresa May had a majority even larger

0:00:420:00:45

than the ones that Margaret Thatcher had in the 1980s.

0:00:450:00:49

Imagine what that might mean for you, for your family,

0:00:490:00:51

for your children, for your neighbours.

0:00:510:00:53

You see, I don't need to imagine - I grew up in Preston in the 1980s.

0:00:530:00:58

Half my mates' parents, including my own,

0:00:580:01:00

were out of work from time to time.

0:01:000:01:02

I saw what happens when you've got a Conservative government

0:01:020:01:05

able to take you for granted because there isn't a strong opposition.

0:01:050:01:10

That's why I am determined that our children should grow up

0:01:100:01:13

in a country where people are decent to one another.

0:01:130:01:15

That's the country I want to lead.

0:01:150:01:18

Last summer, the British people voted to leave

0:01:190:01:22

the European Union, but no-one knows what Brexit looks like,

0:01:220:01:26

and every day Theresa May is making choices -

0:01:260:01:29

choosing to leave the single market,

0:01:290:01:31

risking people's jobs and pushing up the cost of our weekly shop,

0:01:310:01:35

choosing not to give Europeans living in the UK the right to stay,

0:01:350:01:38

choosing to ignore the crisis in our NHS.

0:01:380:01:41

No-one knows what the final deal will look like,

0:01:410:01:44

but someone will have the final say.

0:01:440:01:46

Should it be Theresa May,

0:01:460:01:48

should it be the politicians or should it be you?

0:01:480:01:51

The Liberal Democrats believe you should have the final say

0:01:510:01:54

on the Brexit deal in a referendum, and if you don't like the deal

0:01:540:01:57

you are offered, you should have the choice to remain.

0:01:570:02:01

PEOPLE CHAT

0:02:010:02:02

MUSIC OVER SPEECH

0:02:020:02:03

Every day, Theresa May is making calculated choices -

0:02:070:02:11

pulling us out of the single market, costing jobs,

0:02:110:02:14

pushing up prices, starving our NHS and schools of money,

0:02:140:02:18

turning away desperate refugees.

0:02:180:02:21

That is not the Britain I love. The Britain I love is decent.

0:02:210:02:25

The Britain I love is open, tolerant and united,

0:02:250:02:28

and that is the Britain I am determined to lead.

0:02:280:02:31

Labour will not stand up to the Conservatives, but we will.

0:02:310:02:34

It is not too late.

0:02:340:02:36

The future of your country is in your hands.

0:02:360:02:39

You could change Britain's future.

0:02:390:02:41

It's like a giant Rice Krispie.

0:03:010:03:02

It's cold. Tastes a bit like avocado.

0:03:020:03:05

It's nutrient rich.

0:03:050:03:07

And soon we're all going to be eating them.

0:03:070:03:09

Four crickets have the same amount of calcium as a glass of milk,

0:03:090:03:12

and a dung beetle, twice the protein of beef.
