The stunning result in Witney shows the Liberal Democrats are back as a political force. We are the real opposition to Theresa May and her Brexit Government.
Liz Leffman and her team did us proud. Our vote went up by more than 23%. We went from 4th place to 2nd place. We gained a 19.3% swing from the Conservatives - if repeated at a General election we would take 26 seats from the Tories.
This was our biggest swing against the Tories since 1997, our biggest increase in vote share since 2000. It was an excellent result and we should all be proud of it.
