Ed Davey throws some shapes on the election trail for the Lib Dems

Sir Ed Davey has taken a leaf out of Prince William's book after he was spotted throwing some shapes on the election trial for the Lib Dems.

The British politician donned a blue shirt and cream blazer as he showed off his dance moves in a swing dance class during a campaign visit in Guildford earlier today.

He was spotted jumping around a garden while clapping his hands alongside the Surrey Swing Dance Society just a day after the Prince of Wales was filmed busting moves during the London leg of Taylor Swift's Eras Tour at Wembley Stadium last night.

Speaking to LBC during the event, the Lib Dem leader said: 'I quite enjoyed it. It was great. We're having some fun there'.

Davey then returned to the class where he kicked his feet and diligently watched an instructor while he danced alongside a female partner in a green dress.

Speaking to LBC during the event, the Lib Dem leader said: 'I quite enjoyed it. It was great. We're having some fun there'

'Good for the health, going back to the health theme' he added.

'Good for people's mental health. So good physical exercise whether it's dancing the jive as I was trying to do, or other outside activities, really good for people,' he said.

Davey was then asked if he would go onto Strictly Come Dancing if politics didn't work out for him, to which he responded: 'I'm not sure if anyone's going to invite me onto strictly after that performance, I'll be honest with you'.

But the politician is not the first public figure to take to throwing shapes after Prince William was filmed dancing to Taylor Swift's Shake It Off in London last night.

The rocking royal snapped a photo alongside the Queen of Pop, his son Prince George, his daughter Princess Charlotte, and Swift's American footballer boyfriend Travis Kelce.

The Prince and Princess of Wales's official X account posted the adorable photo with the caption: 'Thank you Taylor Swift for a great evening!'

Comments posted on X, formerly Twitter, in response to footage of William dancing included: 'This is my favourite thing ever!!! I never knew I needed to see Prince William dancing to Taylor Swift!'

Another poster wrote: 'Prince William is a Swiftie. Immense dad dancing there.'

The dancing fever comes after Davey staged an eye-catching stunt at a chicken farm in East Sussex after he warned water companies will not be allowed to 'get away' with sewage dumping.

The Liberal Democrat leader was pecked by hungry farm birds he described as the 'best photo chicken op ever' as he handed out grain and picked up the poultry at The Mac's Farm in Ditchling on Saturday.

He was joined by Lib Dem candidate James MacCleary as he visited the constituency of Lewes, which is a key seat the party is targeting to win from the Conservatives at the General Election on July 4.

Speaking to reporters on Saturday, Davey said: 'We've been feeding the chickens and it's been fun with the children but our main message today is about the environment more broadly.

'We're not happy with the way the regulators have been monitoring and enforcing the law on the water companies.

'They've been allowing them to get away with this filthy sewage dumping.

'These (water) companies now they've been getting away with it, now they're not going to get away with it with the Liberal Democrat ideas.'

Asked if this means people's bills would go up, he responded: 'First and foremost the money should come from the companies.

'They better well invest.'

The comments came as the party announced its plans to tackle pollution of chalk streams across the country, including a public consultation which could see rivers and lakes awarded a new Blue Flag status to protect them from sewage dumping.

Meanwhile, the party leader also responded to Reform UK leader Nigel Farage's comments that the West 'provoked' the Russian invasion of Ukraine, saying: 'It is Putin and Russia who are to blame for this, no-one else.

'I strongly support the efforts that Britain has made to support Ukrainians.

'I wish we had done more actually, and I think British people would be shocked if we do anything else.'

Sir Ed also said: 'I don't share any values with Nigel Farage.'

Asked about Labour's promise to expedite compensation for victims of the Windrush scandal, he said 'I think that's right' and that all political parties must commit to proper compensation.

'I think the British public want them to, they've seen how people have been so badly treated,' he said.
