It is the establishment versus the people and it is our historic duty to make sure that the people prevail.
"Jeremy's opposition to the Trident renewal programme is lifelong and is well known but more than that, I can not countenance endorsing him for a role which I think even he, although he may say different in front of the cameras, does not think he is fit to carry out". Because when we win it is the people, not the powerful, who win.
"The nurse, the teacher, the small trader, the carer, the builder, the office worker win".
"And I tell you what, I am very proud to have gone through the lobby behind him in the coalition government where the Liberal Democrats introduced gay marriage, equal marriage, and indeed did not go as far as it should have done in terms of recognizing transgender rights", said Farron.
"We'd like to meet to explore the best options for beating the Tories in June", they write.
Mr Corbyn launched his campaign in central London, promising not to play by the rules and launching an attack on the ruling "cosy cartels".
But former Lib Dem business secretary Vince Cable this morning ruled out an electoral deal with the Labour party, arguing the chances of Mr Corbyn becoming prime minister are "utterly remote".
He said in a speech Thursday that the old rules drawn up by political and economic elites no longer apply.

We will overturn this rigged system. "The Conservatives will never do that".
"Why are so many people getting poorer?"
Britain is the sixth richest economy in the world.
People like Mike Ashley, the billionaire retailer and Sports Direct owner, will welcome another Tory government and those such as former BHS-owner Philip Green would be scared of a Labour one, he will say. Everyone, and I mean everyone, has a contribution to make and a life to lead. "Every Conservative vote will strengthen the UK's negotiating position in Europe - every vote for another party will weaken it".
"It is wealth that should belong to the majority and not a tiny minority".
YouGov's latest polls have the Tories on 48%, Labour 24%, the Lib Dems 12% and UKIP on only 7%, sparking theories Paul Nuttall's party is losing support to Mrs May. "Having got to where we are, we need to get on with it", she told Reuters in the town's bustling shopping district.
She added that Labour was offering "one size fits all, local authority-run schools, no choice, good or bad, trust your luck".
