Many thanks to everyone who voted Liberal Democrat in the European Elections at the end of May, and supported the campaign to Stop Brexit. The Liberal Democrats topped the poll in London with 27% of the vote, pushing Labour into second place and electing three Members of the European Parliament (MEPs).
Camden Councillor Luisa Porritt (front row, third from left) said “I am very grateful to everyone who voted Liberal Democrat in these elections. We had a clear, unequivocal message – we want to Stop Brexit. With your support, the Liberal Democrats will now redouble our efforts to secure a People’s Vote, and stop Brexit, so that we can focus on the real challenges facing our capital.”
Vote before 10pm TODAY
Vote Liberal Democrat to help stop Brexit
✔️ Led the fight to STOP BREXIT for three years - nationwide and in Parliament.
✔️ BIGGEST REMAIN PARTY across the country according to the polls.
✔️ A LIB DEM WIN can force Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn to listen on Brexit.
Back the biggest party for remain today
Polling stations are now open for voting in the European elections. You have until 10pm to vote and you do not need to bring your polling card with you.
More and more people across the country are backing the Liberal Democrats TODAY - as the best choice to STOP BREXIT.
Brexit is an embarrassment. Theresa May is trying to deliver a disastrous Brexit that only Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg wanted. Labour and Jeremy Corbyn has aided and abetted her every step if the way.
The Liberal Democrats are the BIGGEST remain party - and have been leading the fight to STOP BREXIT for three years.
Every vote for the Liberal Democrats TODAY will send a strong message to Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn to STOP BREXIT.
There's been a clear pattern emerging in recent opinion polls - and it keeps getting better and better for us as time goes on.
Labour is sinking lower and lower - and the Lib Dems are on the up:
The response our campaign is getting makes it clear why this is happening. Labour is a pro-Brexit party, and Remainers have had enough.
They've started attacking us more and more recently. It's pretty obvious that we've got them rattled as we go up and they go down:
But as you can see, it's not exactly working out for them:
To the point that the most recent polls have us in second place above them:
The message is clear - Remainers can't trust Labour. Corbyn wants Brexit. More and more people who want to stay in the EU are switching to the Liberal Democrats as the biggest, strongest Remain party.
We believe that there's no deal better than our membership of the EU. We've been fighting to stop Brexit since the day after the referendum result. And our line is totally clear - every vote for the Lib Dems is a vote to stop Brexit.
We've come a long way since the day after that awful result in 2016. Now, a majority of the public backs our stance of a People's Vote. Politicians from all parties and none have joined our campaign. And on Thursday, we have the chance to send Labour and the Conservatives a message they can't ignore - we want an end to this national embarrassment.
Say you're with us. Pledge your vote to the Lib Dems on Thursday 23rd May and help us stop Brexit.
Liberal Democrats have received a significant boost over the last few days by several high profile politicians from both Labour and the Conservatives.
Former Conservative Deputy Prime Minister Michael Heseltine announced his intention to vote for the Liberal Democrats in this week's European Parliament election. He said, "I cannot, with a clear conscience, vote for my party when it is myopically focused on forcing through the biggest act of economic self-harm ever undertaken by a democratic government."
Then former Labour MP for Thurrock, Andrew Mackinlay, announced his plan to back the Liberal Democrats this Thursday. He said, "The only major party representing my beliefs in the European Union is the Liberal Democrats."
Current Labour MP Margaret Hodge has also urged voters to take "whatever action you need, within your locality, that gives you the best likelihood of electing somebody who will be a pro-European MEP"
It is clear that a vote for the Liberal Democrats is the best chance to put a stop to Brexit. Even Labour and the Conservatives have realised that if you want an exit from Brexit then you need to vote Liberal Democrat on 23rd May.
Fresh off the back of a stunning set of local election results, where the Liberal Democrats won over 700 new seats, latest polling places the Liberal Democrats neck and neck with Labour before the European Parliament elections on the 23rd May.
Liberal Democrat campaigners are celebrating a stunning set of local election results after gaining a record 703 seats.
While Brexit-backing Labour lost 82 seats and six councils despite expecting to make gains, and the Tories lost a humiliating 1,332 councillors and 44 councils, the Lib Dems' pro-Europe stance and dedicated local teams won control of 10 councils.
Luisa Porritt, a Liberal Democrat councillor for Belsize, has been selected as one of the top three MEP candidates for the London Regional List for the European elections.
Luisa is the only Camden candidate and the youngest person on the London Liberal Democrat list.
Speaking to The Guardian before the official launch of the national party's campaign held in East London last Friday, she said the elections were "a way for the electorate to signal to the government that they want a People’s Vote.”
She also told the newspaper that it was important to seize the opportunity to elect liberal, pro-European MEPs in May in order to counteract the Euroscepticism seen across Europe at the last elections in 2014.
