Liberal Democrat projected national vote is 18% in local elections around the Country, up 7%. The Lib Dems are just 9% behind Labour. The Conservatives are up by just 3%.
Sal Brinton, Liberal Democrat party president, said:
“With five weeks of the general election campaign to go, we are just 9% behind Labour and breathing down their necks. We have halved the gap on Labour in just one night and scored our best national election result in seven years.”
Dave Raval, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary candidate for Hackney South and Shoreditch said:
“Labour is collapsing and it is clear from our growing vote share that people now see us as the only credible opposition to the Tory Brexit Government which has essentially now become UKIP, hoovering up their votes in droves.
“There will be lots of scare tactics in Hackney now after the Tory performance in the local elections about voting Labour to stop the Tories getting in. The fact is there has not been a Tory MP in Hackney since World War II and they will not win here on June 8th.
“So the question to ask yourself is who can best represent the people of Hackney. Corbyn’s Labour are backing the Tory hard Brexit, going against the 80% who voted to remain showing just how complacent they have become with the voters here.
“The Liberal Democrats will fight for Hackney, we will give the people a vote on the final Brexit deal and provide strong, competent solutions to healthcare, housing and the economy.”
