Lib Dem membership in Stroud up 50% since election

May 3, 2017 8:45 PM

The Liberal Democrats in Stroud have seen a surge in new members over the past two weeks, with membership up 50% since the general election was called.

It comes as the Liberal Democrats reach their highest ever membership nationally, with over 101,768 members.

14,000 new members across the country have joined the Liberal Democrats in the two weeks since the General Election was announced and over 50,000 members have joined since last year's EU referendum.

Liberal Democrat Max Wilkinson said:

"More and more people in Stroud are joining the Liberal Democrats, the only major UK party standing up against a hard Brexit.

"We are going into these elections bigger than ever before, with a clear message and a growing sense of momentum.

"Liberal Democrats are the main challengers in Stroud, providing a strong and united opposition to the Conservatives.

"Communities here deserve representatives who will fight against cuts to our schools, NHS and social care services.

"In local councils just as in Westminster, Liberal Democrats will provide the strong opposition that Britain needs."
