EMBARGO: For Immediate Release
Responding to the results of the Mid Bedfordshire by-election which saw the Liberal Democrats nearly double their share of the vote compared to 2019, Liberal Democrat Deputy Leader Daisy Cooper said:
“We nearly doubled our share of the vote which would see the Lib Dems win dozens of seats off the Conservatives in a general election.
“The Liberal Democrats played a crucial role in defeating the Conservatives in Mid Bedfordshire, and we can play a crucial role in getting rid of this Conservative government at the next election.
“I’m so proud of Emma Holland-Lindsay and her campaign which convinced thousands of lifelong Conservative voters in the villages of Mid Bedfordshire to switch to the Liberal Democrats.”
