Lib Dems launch local election campaign with giant egg timer

Sir Ed Davey launches the Liberal Democrat’s local election campaign in Hertfordshire, by flipping a giant egg timer to reveal the message "Time's running out Rishi!" Speaking to activists afterwards, the Lib Dem leader said Rishi Sunak “might have bottled the May election, he might be hoping the tide will turn as he squats in Downing Street for a few months more.

But even the prime minister can't deny voters across England the chance to cast their vote in the local elections on 2 May.” Report by Covellm.
