All of us at South Cambs Lib Dems would like to thank everyone who voted for Ian Sollom, and everyone who has offered us their support and encouragement, both before and after the election.
Whilst the result is of course very disappointing, we must also take heart from the great success of the campaign. The Lib Dems achieved a huge 23.4% increase in vote share in South Cambs, which was one of the largest swings in the country.
With a 4.3% difference in vote share between the Consevatives and the Lib Dems, South Cambs has now become a marginal constituency, and we have created a solid platform from which to fight for the seat next time around.
So thank you once again to the 28,111 people who put their faith in Ian as their chosen candidate. It’s going to be more important than ever now to make the case for the kind of society we want to live in, and after the Christmas break the Lib Dems will be getting back to work to do just that.
In the meantime we wish you all a happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year.
