    Welcome to the new Gainsborough Constituency Liberal Democrat website.

    Towards the end of last year, we made a decision to sign up with Prater Raines, a company providing web services to many of the Liberal Democrat constituencies across our region.

    Our association with them will enable us to connect much more effectively with our membership and also hopefully keep everyone better informed and connected with national and regional Liberal Democrat issues and events.

    As you know, Vince has now formally announced his resignation, and, as your President, I am triggering the process for the election of his successor as Leader of the Liberal Democrats.

    I'd like to take a moment to thank Vince for all he's done since he was elected leader in 2017. He's been a steadying influence when it was most needed - and that's led to us gaining new MEPs (exact number to be announce tomorrow evening!) and almost 800 councillors. Thank you, Vince.

    Last night, the British people finished voting in the European elections. The fallout is there for all to see, with the Prime Minister finally conceding this morning that she has reached the end of the road.

    Our campaigning over the last three years has kept the cause of remaining in the European Union alive, and I now believe we have a strong chance of stopping Brexit. When the votes are counted on Sunday, I expect us to do well.

    This morning, Theresa May conceded defeat and announced her resignation as Prime Minister.

    This will undoubtedly be spun by hardline Tories as a failure on her behalf. They'll tell us that a true Brexit believer would have been able to do it.

    But a new Prime Minister won't solve Brexit. Neither will a General Election. Leaving the EU without a deal will cause our country untold harm and widen the gap between the richest and poorest in society.

    That's that - polls for the European elections are now closed!

    We've fought so, so hard - I'm incredibly proud of each and every single one of our candidates, campaigners and voters. 💛

    In the last 6 weeks, we've:

    🔶 Fought a large-scale campaign that went toe-to-toe with Labour, the Conservatives and Nigel Farage's Brexit Party
    🔶 Delivered over 12 million letters
    🔶 Reached over 2.5 million people via social media - on polling day alone
    🔶 Knocked on 225,000 doors
    🔶 Nearly tripled our standing in the polls - from 7% to 20%:
