It comes as the Liberal Democrats reach their highest ever membership nationally, with over 101,768 members.

14,000 new members across the country have joined the Liberal Democrats in the two weeks since the General Election was announced and over 50,000 members have joined since last year’s EU referendum,

Haringey Liberal Democrat Vice-Chair, Cara Jenkinson said:

"More and more people in Haringey are joining the Liberal Democrats, the only major UK party standing up against a hard Brexit and providing a decent opposition to this Conservative government.

“We are going into these elections bigger than ever before, with a clear message and a growing sense of momentum.

“Liberal Democrats are the main challengers in Haringey, providing a strong and united opposition to the Labour council and MPs.

"Communities here deserve representatives who will fight against cuts to our schools, NHS and social care services.

"In local councils just as in Westminster, Liberal Democrats will provide the strong opposition that Britain needs.”
