"Theresa May is not as awful as Trump, but this politics of nastiness, of making life harder for disabled people, of underfunding the NHS to a drastic degree, no housing for most young people. So the fact that they have the commitment to do that and to give the pupils those sort of opportunities is something I've always welcomed".

Budding entrepreneurs setting up their own business will get a £100-a-week allowance to help with living costs if the Liberal Democrats are in government.
