    • Tonight, I joined @LibDems. Pro-UK, pro-EU, civil liberties, PR, decentralised power, social justice. Easy decision.
    • For a long time I have been trying to find a good party with good values that I can believe. I think that Party is the Lib Dems

    • Because of fairer taxes, investment in education, pay rises for public sector workers & fair votes.

    • I joined because I believe in the politics of hope, not the politics of fear

    More than 10,000 new members since polling day

    Since polls closed on Thursday, more than 10,000 new 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.

    We're recruiting people who have never joined a party in the past but want to stand together against the things this Conservative government is already promising to do.

    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.
