More than 10,000 new members since polling day
By Liberal Democrats
Since polls closed on 7th May, more than 10,000 members have joined the Liberal Democrats.
The surge continues as Liberal Democrats across the country have been fighting back and making the case for liberal values of freedom, liberty and change.
Liberal Democrat President Baroness Sal Brinton said:
"Something quite extraordinary is happening across the country and our party membership has never grown faster. Events are taking place all over the country and we are delighted so many new people are joining the liberal fight back.
"People were devastated by the results last week, but rather than sit back and lick their wounds, people have been invigorated and inspired.
"They are coming together to rebuild a strong, Liberal Democrat party, showing that the politics of hope and tolerance can thrive in the face of the politics of grievance and fear.
