A reporter for Politics Home has released the Lib Dem phone bank script for Lewisham East. John Johnston said he was able to access the script, along with a large amount of voters’ personal data, as a result of a "fairly significant data breach."
And boy, is this phone bank script telling. Take a look:

Notice how they have an option for every mainstream political party, and a smart response for every option.
If Labour, they tell the voters that many Labour supporters are telling them they’ll be supporting the Lib Dems to send a message to Corbyn.
If Conservative, they say many Conservative supporters are telling them they’ll be voting Lib Dem to beat Labour, because they know Conservatives can’t win round here.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – the Lib Dems don’t get to decide who can and cannot win in the area. In fact, Lib Dems say that either Labour or Tories CAN NEVER WIN in ANY area they stand for election. Wherever the Lib Dems aren’t in power, they claim the other party can’t win.
This is a lie, it is misleading, it is manipulative, and it is wrong.
And the fact that they have these smart answers for every option just shows how cunning and conniving they are. Along with their claims of "Liberal Democrats Winning Here" in seats they’ve never won, and their fake newspapers they distribute without party logos, the Lib Dems have consistently proven themselves to be the least trustworthy party in politics.
And that’s saying something.
You can see my previous report on how the Liberal Democrats are LYING to the voters:
Tomorrow, I will be bringing you my update predictions on the Lewisham East by-election.
I think things have changed slightly, and I think the lying and manipulative tactics by the Liberal Democrats might actually be enough for them to come second.
