Sarah Wollaston joins the Lib Dems

Sarah Wollaston

The Lib Dems have a brand new MP - Dr Sarah Wollaston, a former Conservative MP in Devon.

Sarah Wollaston decided that the best way that she can serve the interests of her constituents was by joining the Lib Dems. Sarah is a fierce anti-Brexit and health campaigner who has had enough of the politics of nationalism and populism, and wants to support the Lib Dems to deliver an alternative vision for our country.

Will Forster, Lib Dem Parliamentary Spokesperson for Woking, said:

"I am thrilled that Sarah has chosen to join the Lib Dems, her defection to us shows the party is going from strength to strength. We now have more than 116,000 members, as well as almost 15,000 registered supporters."

"Our team in the House of Commons is growing too. A little over a week ago, we welcomed Jane Dodds as our newest MP. Today, we welcome another addition to our team, Dr Sarah Wollaston."

"Our country needs a strong, liberal movement more than ever. That is what we are building - but if we are going to win the next General Election (whenever that may be), then we need our movement to keep on growing. If you agree, please join us and be part of it."
