Tim Farron rules out coalition deals with the Tories and Labour

Farron, a Christian, was asked four times in two separate interviews on Sunday whether he believes gay sex is a sin.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron is coming under increased pressure again to clarify his views on homosexuality, in the run-up to the general election on June 8.

Peston asked again. Farron replied: "It's possible I'm not the only person who's getting exhausted of this line of questioning".

Mr Farron was pressed to clarify his position while appearing on ITV 1's Peston On Sunday, replying "being gay is not a sin" before adding he was "getting exhausted of this line of questioning" when asked to be unambiguous on the matter.

The Liberal Democrats plan to fight a hard Brexit and challenge Labour's council policies in their efforts to win Sheffield voters.

"Even if I had a figure in my head, you'd be the umpteenth person I was going to disappoint by not giving a figure to".

Activists jeered as reporters pressed for further clarification about Mr Farron's views in an indication of how uncomfortable the issue is for the Lib Dems and their leader.

This is how good I really was for Manchester United
For a limited time, you can get your hands on a Manchester City official shirt from just £30 for adults and £22.50 for children. Per video replays, the ball bended back in-play and Sergio Aguero struck it over the goalline.

The Prime Minister has already made clear she wants to leave the single market and end the jurisdiction of the ECJ as part of her Brexit strategy, so it is highly unlikely that Tory candidates will sign up to Mr Farron's list of demands. I think that's pretty offensive and will rightly anger a lot of people.

Gove added: "I agree with Liz; it would have been perfectly possible of him to say 'of course it's not a sin, it's how people love each other'".

However, Robert Peston wanted to know if the politician believes the act of gay sex is a sin, rather than the sexual preference.

"I'm a church-goer too and I have no problem in saying gay sex is absolutely not a sin".

The Liberal Democrat membership surge is about to take the party to a landmark 100,000 members - thanks to a staggering 12,500 joining since Theresa May announced the snap General Election last Tuesday.

"I think Tim accepts that he's got to reflect the people they represent and he's done so in a very liberal way".

"One's personal faith is one's personal faith".
