    Across the country today, thousands of activists are knocking on doors for the Lib Dems.

    We've had hundreds of people join us here my own constituency, reminding Liberal Democrat supporters that it's now time to get out and vote.

    Britain is tired of the politics of the past.

    Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn have no vision for the future of this country. Only the Liberal Democrats have a detailed, credible and radical plan to build a future where every person, every community and our planet can thrive.

    Today is our chance to change the future of this country. It could be the day we make history.

    Tomorrow morning, we could be waking up to see top Brexiteers have lost their seats to Liberal Democrats who will fight to stop Brexit. We're already hearing some great reports from key seats across the country.

    "From the bottom of my heart: thank you."

    Whatever happens tomorrow, I couldn't be prouder.

    This campaign has taken me all over the country, and everywhere I've seen Liberal Democrat campaigners giving their all.

    I've seen new members deliver their first few leaflets. I've seen life-long Lib Dems running high-tech campaigns out of their living rooms.

    "It doesn't have to be this way."

    My message today is clear.

    To stop Brexit, we must stop Boris Johnson. We have one more day left to do it.

    To all my fellow Lib Dem activists up and down the country - I say this:

    Keep going. Keep fighting for every vote.

    And to everyone out there who has a growing pile of Lib Dem leaflets on their kitchen table: we can win where you live.

    "Johnson's Brexit lies have caused huge damage to our public services already."

    Boris's lie on the side of a bus was an even bigger whopper than we thought. Not only does Brexit not mean an extra £350 million a week for the NHS...

    In reality, it means £350 million a week less.

    And that's before we've even left.

    The economy usually features heavily in election discourse.

    But this time the two main parties have opted for silly economics instead. It's either pursuing a Brexit that we know will damage the economy or a reckless spending plan we can't afford.

    But you can't fool business. Over 60 business leaders have named us as the 'only party who have set out a credible plan for future prosperity'.

    "Almost the only people who think Johnson a nice guy are those who do not know him."

    It's a statement made by Max Hastings, Johnson's former boss at the Telegraph. He's not the only person who has worked with Boris Johnson who has gone public with their criticisms.

    Here's a collection of quotes from his Conservative colleagues:

    This Thursday marks one of the most important elections in a generation. If Boris Johnson wins a majority, he will push through his disastrous Brexit plan. He will also plunge us headfirst into some of the most extreme economic policies in decades.

    This won't just ruin Christmas, like forgetting the stuffing or not taking your stockings down before lighting the fire. It will be disastrous for our country for decades to come.
