Lib Dems make very NSFW offer to win swinger voters 😳

It's been a rough few years for the Lib Dems. After losing a heap of MPs at the last general election, they've struggled to regain voters. Even when they're fighting to become Glasgow University Rector against "Alt-Right" douchebag Milo Yiannopoulos.

So it's understandable that they'd take to some rather more out-there tactics. Maybe say outright they'll reverse Brexit, or scrap the tuition fees they fought so hard against and then increased to Β£9000.

But instead they seem to be taking a rather more NSFW approach, tweeting from their North West Lib Dems account last night directly to the electorate "Hey wanna f*ck?"

The tweet was sent late at night and was left there long enough for half the world to screengrab it...

...or tell them that they do in fact wanna f*ck.

After some confusion (was this a new tactic? Are they trying to bang their way to number 10?) the Lib Dems cleared up the mess, saying vaguely that their account was compromised.

Which hasn't gone down well with voters who were thinking of signing up after seeing the new direction the party was taking.

The Lib Dem MP for the area made light of the situation, telling one voter that if he personally had promised to f*ck them, then they could count on him, and apologised for their disappointment.

He also had some advice for whoever is running the Lib Dem account in his constituency.

People are roundly mocking the Lib Dems for the tweet.

Earlier this year, the Lib Dems were also mocked for this promotional video, which people likened to a porn film.

Weirdly, after the tweet coincided with a surge of new people joining the Lib Dems.

Let's hope they know what they're signing up for.
