Liberal Democrats

Have we overtaken the Conservatives in Membership?

Vince Cable speaks at Lib Dem conference.

When I became your leader three months ago, one of the goals I set was for us to overtake the Conservatives in membership.

Today we may have just done exactly that.

The Conservatives are notoriously secretive about their membership, but it's been reported that it's dropped to "around 100,000".

That means we have either already surpassed the Conservatives' membership, or we are about to. The enormity of this cannot be underestimated. I don't know about you, but I'd like to make sure there is no doubt.

Theresa May’s Tories are in turmoil. And their former members, many of whom are pro Europeans like us need a new home.

Let's make the Liberal Democrats the second largest British political party. And then from there anything is possible...

Here's how you can help:

1. One of the best ways to recruit a new member is to ask a friend who shares our values to join us. Will you ask your friends to join today?

Ask your friends to join

2. The membership team tells me it costs £5 to recruit a member online. Will you donate and help us pay for Facebook adverts to recruit more members?

Donate today

Let's make sure there's absolutely no doubt that we've overtaken the Conservatives in membership.
