This result proves again that the Lib Dems are back and are a huge force to be reckoned with in British politics.

The result in Brecon and Radnorshire shows that the country doesn’t have to settle for Boris Johnson or Jeremy Corbyn.
We have burst Boris Johnson’s bubble in the first week of his premiership.
“Here we stand, bursting Boris Johnson’s bubble, in the first week of his premiership and we will not tolerate a no-deal #Brexit”

We have reduced his majority in Parliament to just one vote. The Liberal Democrats have a positive vision for a richer, greener and safer future – within the EU.
Unlike the Labour party, who have been sleeping on the job, we have a clear path to taking on the hard right Brexiters – and winning.
Hundreds of people have joined the Lib Dems this morning on seeing the news that we can take on Boris Johnson and win.
Will you join us today?
