Join us : As membership of Liberal Democrats surges again and we make more progress in Newcastle...

May 27, 2019 3:58 PM
To get a say in the Liberal Democrats leadership elections, new members need to sign up by June 7th. So if you're thinking about it to do the deed sooner rather than later via libdems.org.uk/join-local and use the constituency code 1375 so we get our share of the membership fee in Newcastle. The Liberal Democrats are the leading Remain party dedicated to freedom and social justice. Accept no susbstitutes!
Will say that again : Memberships must be received by 7th June if you want a vote in the leadership election.
The Liberal Democrats have secured the best ever European Election result in the party's history, expecting to return 16 MEPs and take second place in vote share. This follows an unambiguous campaign to stop Brexit the party has made huge gains across the country, which follow the party's best ever gains in English local election results at the start of May, including gaining Ouseburn in Newcastle and coming within a few hundred votes of Labour in the European election in the city.

"Our clear, honest, unambiguous message has won us our best ever European election result, and pushed Corbyn's Labour into third place," said outgoing Liberal Democrats Leader Vince Cable.

"We have shown ourselves to be the strongest Remain force in British politics.

"We will always stand up for the people who have put their faith in us, taking this mandate forward to campaign harder than ever to stop Brexit.

"There is a clear lesson for Labour in tonight's results: get off the fence. In trying to please everybody they have pleased nobody.

"With a Tory leadership contest increasing the risk of a "No Deal" Brexit, Britain can no longer tolerate an Opposition which ducks and dives on the biggest issue of the day.

"If you want to see an outward looking Britain, standing tall in the world with our European partners, and offering opportunity to everyone at home, there is no better moment to shape the future of our party and our politics, by joining the Liberal Democrats."
