Wera Thrilled Jo Swinson Is New Liberal Democrat Leader

By Office of Wera Hobhouse, Jul 23, 2019 10:07

With Jo’s victory, our party is in excellent shape to take forward the fight against Brexit, and build a powerhouse in the centre ground of British politics.  

I want to say an enormous thank you to Vince Cable for leading our party’s resurgence and for being a voice of dignity and reason in these turbulent times.

Jo Swinson and Ed Davey ran a very respectful and constructive debate in our leadership election.

I am absolutely delighted that Jo Swinson is our new leader.

With Jo’s victory, our party is in excellent shape to take forward the fight against Brexit, and build a powerhouse in the centre ground of British politics. Our country needs a radically different approach to the broken two party politics that has got us into the mess we are in, and our party will work with, and welcome those who share our values. Jo will build on the fine work of our outgoing leader Vince Cable as we demand better for Britain.  

The Liberal Democrats speak up for British people who want a fair and equal future for our country. A country that is internationalist and will tackle climate change. A country that faces down the emergent nationalism and populism both here and abroad. I back Jo to lead this fight, to stop Brexit and to deliver a vibrant economy and a tolerant, inclusive society.
