Lib Dems on verge of historic breakthrough in London



In the final day of campaigning before polling day, Lib Dem Mayoral Candidate Rob Blackie will be joining strongly-tipped South West constituency candidate, Gareth Roberts, campaigning in Old Malden, Kingston.

In 2021, the Liberal Democrats came a very close second place to the Conservatives in the constituency – missing out by less than four per cent.

With the Conservatives in freefall across the capital, the Liberal Democrats are optimistic that they can win their first ever London constituency and be on course for their best representation on the Assembly in 20 years.

In a show of support, Rob Blackie hit the campaign trail with Gareth Roberts and will also be joined by Parliamentary Candidate for Wimbledon, Paul Kohler, and Richmond Park MP, Sarah Olney.

Lib Dem Mayoral Candidate Rob Blackie said, “The Liberal Democrats are running a really strong campaign and I’m confident that we are on the verge of an historic breakthrough in London – with our very first constituency win and our best overall result in decades.

“The Conservatives are in freefall – just look at any opinion poll or listen to what they say about themselves. They will not win.

“But Sadiq Khan doesn’t deserve to win either. His record is terrible and his failings on the Metropolitan Police are shameful.

“The Liberal Democrats are making a strong liberal challenge to the Mayor with a plan to fix the Met. Londoners that want change with a party that shares its values should vote Liberal Democrat on all three ballot papers tomorrow.”
