    Hear from David Inglesfield about why he joined the Lib Dems:
    When did you join the Lib Dems?
    I joined the LibDems on the spur of the moment after the Brexit referendum. I thought Brexit was a really bad decision and I believe that politicians should provide leadership, not just do something which is popular but which they know to be bad for the country.

I found myself getting frustrated with the news and Brexit and shouting at the TV and decided I needed to become more educated about politics and have more robust information to debate the pros and cons of Brexit with friends and family.
