    Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron said:

    "My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families, and I would like to pay tribute to the emergency services for their professional response in such terrible circumstances.

    "The terrorists kill us because they hate us and what we stand for. They hate our democracy and our freedom. We refuse to let them win. We must respond with a vigorous commitment to our democracy.

    "The election must go ahead as planned. It is right that we suspend our national campaigning for a short while out of respect for those affected by these tragic events, but local campaigning can and must continue.

    "The remainder of this campaign must be a collective showing of defiance and pride in our democratic values."

    'I've enjoyed talking to people in various parts of Slough about the crucial election on June 8th', said Tom McCann, Liberal Democrat candidate for Slough.

    'My main leaflet is being delivered to every house in Slough. In it I set out my policies and promises on a range of issues. These include how, if elected to be Slough's MP, I'll use my previous experience in the building trade to promote ways of tackling Slough's housing crisis. I'll stand up to the Labour council when they refuse to listen to local people on issues such as traffic, and I'll oppose the Tories' plan to bring back fox hunting.'

    The fight to protect the NHS, social care, pensions and education services intensified as Tom McCann, Liberal Democrat candidate for Slough, took his campaign to the town's streets. Tom and some of his team were out in the Harrow Market, Langley, on Saturday talking to shoppers.

    Tom McCann said, "People are angry at the Tory plans to hit pensioners, local schools and health and care services. By axing the nutritious free school lunches for primary school children the Tories have abandoned Jamie Oliver in favour of Oliver Twist. The Lib Dems forced the Tories to introduce the popular free school lunches as part of the Coalition Government between 2010-15. The free lunches are known to be good for school performance and children's health. So why are the Tories axing them?"

    Article: Apr 18, 2017

    The Liberal Democrats have gained 1000 new members since Theresa May announced a snap General Election.

    In the first hour following the announcement the party saw a surge in membership as people flocked to support the party and change the direction of the country away from the Conservatives' disastrous hard Brexit.

    Membership of the party has boomed and the number of members is the highest of this Century.

    President of the Liberal Democrats, Sal Brinton, said:

    "This is a time when liberals must stand together, and people across the country are doing just that.

    "The surge in our membership proves that the Liberal Democrats are seen as the real opposition to this Conservative Brexit Government.

    "While Theresa May is seeking to divide the country, the Liberal Democrats are the only party fighting to keep Britain Open, Tolerant and United."
