Following the terror attack in London last night, national campaigning is currently suspended. Local campaigning will continue as normal.
Lib Dem leader Tim Farron said:
“The terrorists kill us because they hate us and what we stand for. They hate our democracy and our freedom. We refuse to let them win. We must respond with a vigorous commitment to our democracy. The election must go ahead as planned. It is right that we suspend our national campaigning for a short while out of respect for those affected by these tragic events, but local campaigning can and must continue. The remainder of this campaign must be a collective showing of defiance and pride in our democratic values.”
Lizzie Jewkes said:
“People like those that carried out the attack in London want to disrupt our democracy. We can’t let them.”
