A key problem for Farron’s party is that Labour is competitive among young people – many of whom have not forgiven it for tuition fees.
Over the last year, I’ve set out a number of policy ideas designed to appeal to lower middle class voters. Here are some of them.
Rail liberalisation is being extended into the EEA agreement: the Fourth Railway Package is set to increase competition further.
A great swathe of Labour’s core vote will loathe the party’s Brexit and migration plans. Now Crosby must make them known.
Corbyn’s Michael Foot tribute act gives the Conservatives the potential to secure a landslide by winning over the patriotic working-class vote.
Charlie Elphicke: Don’t assume that Macron will push our border back to Dover. Here’s how we can reach agreement.
France’s new president may be a more positive force for Britain than people expect. But we need to be ready – deal or no deal.
Adam Wildman: Why the pollution panic? Our air is getting cleaner. May should ignore the scaremongering – and help drivers
We should not let the Left’s virtue-signalling convince us that imposing further penalties on drivers would be a good idea.

We are keen to gather views from interested parties (such as businesses, industry groups, politicians, academics and others) about what would happen.
A winding road through the Cumbria countryside helps to show, with many others like it, that small improvements can help make big things happen.
We now have a tried and tested case study to prove that competition in rail delivers better services, better value and higher satisfaction.
