Jo Swinson responds to Lib Dems squeeze in polls

Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson has insisted that her party is “on the up” despite a dip in recent polls.

Ms Swinson admitted that there had been “a bit of a squeeze”, but responded that polls at this point in the 2017 election “weren’t a very good indicator” of the final outcome.

She was speaking during a visit to a school in Cambridge on the day of the Liberal Democrat manifesto launch.
