Following huge successes in the May 2019 local election and Europe election, the Lib Dems have surged past the Conservatives to the top of the poll for a general election. Poll results may not be reliable, but there is no doubt the next leader of the Lib Dems will be one that cannot be ignored in Westminster. So who is in the frame to take over from Vince Cable in a few weeks?
Congratulations to Allan Tweddle, our new Lib Dem London Assembly candidate for Bexley and Bromley photographed here with Siobhan Benita, the Lib Dem candidate for London Mayor.
While all eyes have been focussed on our recent successes in the Local Council and EU elections, another small contest has been underway around London. The members of all of the capital's local parties have been selecting who should represent them in next year's London Assembly elections.
The votes were counted on the morning of Friday 7 June at Liberal Democrat HQ. Allan Tweddle said: "I'm delighted to announce that the members in Bexley and Bromley borough voted for me to stand as their candidate for the constituency that covers the region. Thank you to everyone who voted for me."
