The Liberal Democrats in Southwark say their membership is surging after a successful pro-EU campaign in last month’s European elections, with more than 100 new members in under two weeks.

Between May 24 and June 5, 2019, the Liberal Democrats gained 104 new members in Southwark, and thirteen new supporters.

The party’s local leader, Councillor Anood Al-Samerai, said ‘momentum is very much with us now’.

“It comes from people respecting us for boldly proclaiming our core values of internationalism, openness, radical environmentalism and a tolerant, fairer and more equal society,” she said.

“We’ll continue to fight for for values and urge anyone that shares our values to step up and join us in that fight.”
