    We wake this morning to a double blow. A Conservative majority Government, hell-bent on pushing Brexit through, and the loss of our Leader, Jo Swinson from Parliament.

    First, let me pay tribute to Jo. Her declaration speech in the early hours of this morning moved us all. Focusing on the future of our country and, importantly, standing by our principles and values as a Party. She will make a formal statement later today.

    Parliament and our party will sorely miss her determination, passion and talent.

    If you are wondering what happens now, Ed Davey will act as temporary Leader in the Commons and our Party President, Sal Brinton will help fulfil the other functions of Leader for the wider Party. Together they will jointly assume the Leadership functions of the party.

    There are some wonderful gains amongst the shocking loss. Seeing talented people like Munira Wilson, Wendy Chamberlain and Daisy Cooper win, and Sarah Olney retake her seat - is something from which we can collectively draw strength.

    We have achieved astonishing rises in vote share in places like Esher and Walton, Wimbledon, South Cambridgeshire and so many more. There is much we can build on from here, and we will be careful to learn the lessons to build for the future.

    As I write, there are still some results yet to come in, so we will send you another update later.

    Britain still needs the Liberal Democrats, today more than ever.

    Thank you for everything that you have done during the course of this campaign and for the cause of Remain.

    We've been fighting Brexit since day one.

    We've asked Parliament to support a confirmatory referendum (a People's Vote) on Brexit 17 times - and we're not going to stop. We've got another motion ready to go as soon as Parliament returns.

    Every single Liberal Democrat MP elected today will work to stop Brexit.

    Across the country today, thousands of activists are knocking on doors for the Lib Dems.

    We've had hundreds of people join us here my own constituency, reminding Liberal Democrat supporters that it's now time to get out and vote.

    Britain is tired of the politics of the past.

    Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn have no vision for the future of this country. Only the Liberal Democrats have a detailed, credible and radical plan to build a future where every person, every community and our planet can thrive.

    Today is our chance to change the future of this country. It could be the day we make history.

    Tomorrow morning, we could be waking up to see top Brexiteers have lost their seats to Liberal Democrats who will fight to stop Brexit. We're already hearing some great reports from key seats across the country.

    "From the bottom of my heart: thank you."

    Whatever happens tomorrow, I couldn't be prouder.

    This campaign has taken me all over the country, and everywhere I've seen Liberal Democrat campaigners giving their all.

    I've seen new members deliver their first few leaflets. I've seen life-long Lib Dems running high-tech campaigns out of their living rooms.

    "It doesn't have to be this way."

    My message today is clear.

    To stop Brexit, we must stop Boris Johnson. We have one more day left to do it.

    To all my fellow Lib Dem activists up and down the country - I say this:

    Keep going. Keep fighting for every vote.

    And to everyone out there who has a growing pile of Lib Dem leaflets on their kitchen table: we can win where you live.

    "Johnson's Brexit lies have caused huge damage to our public services already."

    Boris's lie on the side of a bus was an even bigger whopper than we thought. Not only does Brexit not mean an extra £350 million a week for the NHS...

    In reality, it means £350 million a week less.

    And that's before we've even left.

    The economy usually features heavily in election discourse.

    But this time the two main parties have opted for silly economics instead. It's either pursuing a Brexit that we know will damage the economy or a reckless spending plan we can't afford.

    But you can't fool business. Over 60 business leaders have named us as the 'only party who have set out a credible plan for future prosperity'.

    "Almost the only people who think Johnson a nice guy are those who do not know him."

    It's a statement made by Max Hastings, Johnson's former boss at the Telegraph. He's not the only person who has worked with Boris Johnson who has gone public with their criticisms.

    Here's a collection of quotes from his Conservative colleagues:

    This Thursday marks one of the most important elections in a generation. If Boris Johnson wins a majority, he will push through his disastrous Brexit plan. He will also plunge us headfirst into some of the most extreme economic policies in decades.

    This won't just ruin Christmas, like forgetting the stuffing or not taking your stockings down before lighting the fire. It will be disastrous for our country for decades to come.

Lewis North has been chosen to be your Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Meon Valley at the next election.
Having grown up here, gone to local schools, and worked in local businesses, Lewis knows how to not only protect our local area, but allow it to develop and flourish.

Lewis, who is 28 years old, grew up in Meon Valley, attended local schools, and has worked for local farms and businesses.
He has lived, worked and studied in Belgium, Germany, Canada and the UK. He now works as an environmental policy advisor for the Environment Agency.


Lewis says, "I love this area and I will fight to give local people the representation they deserve in parliament. For too long our constituency has been neglected by the Conservatives. We need a fresh start and a fresh local face to get things moving forward."
