Tim Farron welcomes new Lib Dem members – over 1000 this week

Over 300 people joined the Liberal Democrats yesterday in the wake of Jeremy Corbyn’s re-election, That brings the total of new members to over 1000 this week.

It’s been a good week for the party, which has 3 more councillors in seats gained from both Labour and the Tories.

Tim Farron welcomed the new members to the Lib Dems:

I am delighted to welcome so many new members to the party and look forward to working with them to provide the real opposition to this Conservative Brexit Government.

We are the voice for those who oppose the politics of fear, division and hatred. Our growth in membership and ongoing successes in council by elections across the country show that the Liberal Democrats are rebuilding our strength.

The Liberal Democrats are needed more than ever. We are the real voice of opposition to the Conservative Brexit Government and the only party fighting to keep Britain open, tolerant and united.

If you have joined the Liberal Democrats recently, see here for some ideas about how to get involved. If you haven’t yet joined, you can do so here.
