Their goal isn't to win, it's to outflank Labour and become the official opposition. That's why they wanted an election before any Brexit deal - the LD platform goes up in smoke the second Leave becomes a reality, and they certainly weren't going to do any withdrawal deal that made Jeremy Corbyn a caretaker Prime Minister and reinforce Labour's status as main party of the left.

Unusually, I agree with you. They surely won't go from 16 seats to a majority, and can't really believe that they will.

Appealing to the ardent Remain supporter may see the Lib Dems gain a certain number of Conservative and Labour marginals in the leafier parts of the country but the idea they’ll be forming a government or becoming the main opposition party is for the birds.

And before you say it... Theresa May did a valiant job of trying to do it against all odds and backstabbing within her own party

I think the Brits may be in for the shock of their lives this time around. Never underestimate just how angry the people are...on both sides of the vote
