May Election Campaigns Launched
“There is a secret phenomenon in British politics.” said Vince Cable today at the national launch of the Liberal Democrats’ campaigns for this May’s local elections.
“It is occurring in by-elections all over the country, week in, week out, to local authorities from Sunderland to Somerset.
“Against the Tories. Against Labour. In Leave areas. In Remain areas.
“Since the general election in 2017, the Liberal Democrats are up 15 seats, double Labour’s increase of 7, while the Conservatives are tanking – they have lost 18 seats.
“These real votes in real ballot boxes show Liberal Democrat support at double our national opinion poll rating.”
