Last week Liberal Democrat Sarah Olney sent a strong message to Government when she overturned Zac Goldsmith’s 23,000 majority to become the new MP for Richmond Park in London.
The Lib Dem campaign in Richmond focussed on two issues, which clearly rang true with voters:
- the underfunding by Government of NHS services, which is leading to severe problems for care services for elderly and other vulnerable residents
- worry about a Government heading for a so-called ‘Hard Brexit’, without free trade with the rest of Europe, with huge concerns on what this means for people’s jobs and livelihood.
Many traditional Conservative and Labour voters, including many ‘Leave’ supporters backed the Liberal Democrats because of our strong positive messages on the NHS and ‘Brexit’.
