This was the moment when a second Lib Dem candidate in a matter of hours endured a car crash interview on LBC.
After Sam Gyimah struggled to answer questions about the cost of a flagship Lib Dem education policy when he joined Eddie Mair to take calls, Alistair Carmichael was asked if he could provide some more clarity.
Watch the clip above to find out what happened when he spoke to Tom Swarbrick - while you can watch Sam Gyimah's LBC interview below.
Afterwards, LBC listeners took to Twitter to talk about the "car crash" interview.
I thought it was impossible to sound as inept as @SamGyimah on @LBC today but @amcarmichaelMP just given him a run for his money when talking to @TomSwarbrick1. Do candidates not realise how arrogant they sound when asking us to vote for them but don’t know their figures? #GE2019— Leighton (@LeightonAV) November 20, 2019
Alistair Carmichael just had a TOTAL car crash on @LBC with @TomSwarbrick1 oh dear if you get a chance have a listen. I'm sure quite a few votes lost off the back of this. Presenter very fair tho Carmichael utterly clueless about own policy and manifesto— 🎗️Bobsyerauntie🏴 (Esquire) (@Lexi_isaboy) November 20, 2019
@TomSwarbrick1 well done on tonight's interview with Alistair Carmichael, not only was he clueless on the figures but when he knew he was in a car crash he became defensive and rude. Well conducted and professionally handled @LBC @LibDems #GeneralElection— RIL1959 (@RIL1959) November 20, 2019
