‘Christianity underpins freedom and discarding it damages democracy,’ said Tim Farron on 28 November.

Farron, who up until recently was leader of the Liberal Democrat Party, outlined his views on how democracy is corroding: ‘Christians have more reason than most to be alarmed.’ Liberalism had ‘stopped being liberal’ and instead become the oppressor of free society. He described it as ‘eating itself’. Quoting John Stuart Mill in 1859, he said ‘liberty is at risk when we all feel a pressure to start thinking the same things’.
