Tim Farron has been doing his best to appeal to Remain voters left fed-up at the outcome of last year's referendum. The only problem? In doing so, he's angered those on the other side of the debate. Today, on a visit to Kidlington, he got his comeuppance as he came face to face with one such voter who was furious at the Lib Dem's Brexit stance. Here's the video:

Farron did his best to try and calm the man down by saying that he had lots of friends who voted Leave - and that he didn't think they were 'racist'. But unfortunately for the Lib Dem leader, things took a turn for the worse when he asked the man whether his grandchildren would be happy that they would 'inherit a poorer and less secure country' as a result of Brexit. Mr S isn't so sure that's a good line of argument to take if Farron wants to win over unhappy voters...
