    A great team effort

    We've had a huge set of elections in difficult circumstances. It was a massive combined effort of volunteers and staff, candidates and agents, helpers and donors, to get several hundred Liberal Democrats elected. Thank you to everyone who played their part in an impressive team effort.

    We must rebuild as a fairer, greener and more caring country in the aftermath of Covid.

    Boris Johnson has utterly failed to deliver an ambitious programme

    So it is crushingly disappointing that the Government's plans will fail on every account - still failing small businesses and the self-employed, still not rising properly to the climate challenge and still ignoring millions of people caring for loved ones at home.

    Thank you to everyone who supported us in the local election campaign.

    We are proud of our positive campaigning, putting forward a brighter vision for Exeter in some of the most uncertain times.

    We have increased our vote share in Duryard & St James, but we were unable to dislodge Labour from the seat, meaning the ward now has 2 Lib Dem Cllrs and 1 Labour.

    Similarly, we have improved our vote share and number of votes to a strong second in St Thomas and +14% in Pennsylvania.

    The Progressive Group was the only Council Group to increase in membership: 5 PG, 6 Tories, and 28 Labour.

    We will continue to hold the Labour administration to account for its actions and speak up on behalf of local residents.
