The Liberal Democrats stormed to victory across the country last night with their best set of local election results ever.
Carshalton & Wallington Lib Dem MP Tom Brake said:
"The Lib Dems are the success story of these elections. We’ve gained over 500 seats so far, taken control of 9 councils and held onto two more.
"Voters have sent a clear message that they no longer have confidence in the Conservatives, but they are also refusing to reward Labour whilst it prevaricates on the big issue of the day: Brexit.
"Our army of 100,000 members and 250,000 supporters are a campaigning force to be reckoned with in Remain and Leave areas alike.
"Today’s Lib Dem surge is a springboard for the European elections, where we are clearly the strongest Remain force on the ballot paper. Every Liberal Democrat vote on May 23rd will be a vote to stop Brexit."
