    So as you may have heard - Vince is stepping down. That means a leadership contest has been triggered. Here's how to have your say on the future of our party!

    But who can vote for the next Lib Dem leader?

    The answer is simple - to vote, you need to join the Lib Dems as a member.

    Who's standing to be leader?

    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%:

    We've had an amazing campaign - and now it's nearly over. You've got until 10 tonight to get out and cast your vote for the Liberal Democrats to stop Brexit!

    We're the biggest, strongest Remain party - and we're on course for an amazing result. These European elections are your chance to send a message to the pro-Brexit Labour and Conservative parties - we just want it to stop.

    Over the last three weeks our fantastic team of Liberal Democrat candidates have been out and about across the East of England, talking to voters. Marie Goldman was up early one morning to speak to voters at Chelmsford station. She found many former Labour voters say they will back the Liberal Democrats this time.

    Tomorrow, my first ever vote is going to be a vote for the Liberal Democrats to stop Brexit.

    Just in case the 'Bollocks to Brexit' campaign slogan didn't make it clear enough; every vote for the Lib Dems is a vote to Stop Brexit and remain in the European Union. They're the biggest remain party and were the first to call for a People's Vote back in 2016.
