New homes must be marketed to Britons first, say Liberal Democrats

"I think they have a very good vision for the country", said Andie Gbedemah, 24, who supports the social care pledge.

"Not Theresa May's cold, mean-spirited Britain".

In their election manifesto, published yesterday, the party's leader Tim Farron said that the Lib Dems' Green Transport Act would include a raft of measures aimed at improving air quality, many of which target private and public transport.

The senior sources have warned Mr Farron will have to consider his position if his manifesto, which is heavily focused on Brexit, fails to make a breakthrough, the Daily Telegraph reports.

The party, which suffered in the 2015 election when it was left with just eight MPs, has also said it will raise all income tax by 1p to raise £6bn for the NHS and social care services and promised its flagship policy of delivering a second European Union referendum following the conclusion of Brexit negotiations.

In a nod to their recently released paper outlining ways to bolster the creative industry, the Lib Dems say they will be "supporting modern and flexible patent, copyright and licensing rules".

Tim Farron wants to forget 2016 ever happened, and replay the disastrous year all over again, his manifesto revolved around the plan to hold a fresh referendum on Brexit.

Joe Richards, Liberal Democrat candidate for Hackney North and Stoke Newington said: "Thousands of families in Hackney are struggling to find a decent and affordable place to call home".

This time, however, Mr Farron is ruling that option out. Anti-Europe. Anti-refugees. Slashing funding to schools and hospitals.

The manifesto also pledges to increase corporation tax from 19% to 20% and a penny-in-the-pound increase in income tax.

And Farron has announced a flagship rent-to-own scheme would see monthly rents used like a mortgage with working tenants owning their own home over a 30-year period.

The plan includes: - A diesel scrappage scheme and the ban on the sale of diesel cars and small vans in the United Kingdom by 2025 - Extending ultra-low-emission zones to 10 more towns and cities.

The Lib Dems would spend an extra £7 billion on education, increasing school budgets and the pupil premium for disadvantaged children.

Mr Corbyn's key union backer, Unite general secretary Len McCluskey, rowed back on his suggestion Labour would have had a "successful" election campaign if it manages to hold on to 200 seats, restricting the increase in the size of Mrs May's majority.

"There's only one way to be sure of the strong, stable leadership we need through Brexit and beyond - and that's by voting for Theresa May and her Conservative team".

He said: "On the biggest question facing all of us, Brexit, which has such huge implications for our young people and our future, Corbyn ordered his MPs to stand down against Theresa May's government".
