Tim Farron: 'I'm committed to equality'

In an exclusive TV interview, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Tim Farron told our reporter Tim Backshall that his choice to resign was "the right one".

When asked about his voting, or lack of, on equality bills, speaking on our programme, the Westmorland and Lonsdale MP said he is "committed to equality".

There are some people of various faiths who think their job in politics is to impose their faiths on others, I have never thought that.

I think it is first of all not liberal and secondly, actually, it is counterproductive when it comes to advancing the gospel.


Watch the exclusive interview below:

In the end, I've made a choice that I think is the right one.

– Tim Farron MP

The MP will remain leader of the Liberal Democrats party until a successor is chosen.
