    Commenting on the result of the General Election, Peter Jones says:
    "I'm grateful to the 7,179 that voted for me and the Liberal Democrats, thank you. My colleagues and I were pleased to meet so many local residents throughout the campaign, and we're grateful to everyone that took the time to talk with us about their local concerns.
    "Sadly, I said at the very beginning of the process that this was an unnecessary election, and I think now that even Mrs May would agree with me. This was supposed to be "the Brexit election" but we are hardly any further forward. I sense a mood amongst most people to 'get on with it' - the minor drawback being that nobody can agree what 'it' is!
    "Whenever the next general election happens (not for a while in my opinion, but we'll see...) we in the Liberal Democrats will continue to argue for a society that is open to all, united in support of liberty and tolerant of the opinions of others.
    "Once again, thank you for your support."

    ( 6 June, 2017)

    We are sorry there is no Lib Dem candidate in the Buckingham constituency, and that once again electors here have had no proper choice of possible MP, unlike every other seat in the UK.

    We had established with our national party that we had the right to stand a candidate to oppose Mr Speaker, and had in fact appointed one in late April this year. However she was persuaded to stand down by party officials.

    From: Liberal Democrat Voice

    The esteemed publication the Economist has said that its vote goes to the Liberal Demcrats.

    It is not, to be fair, the most enthusiastic endorsement that this world has ever seen, and its language harks painfully back to the brains and heart stuff that Nick Clegg came out with pre 2015, but we can take this.
