Bill Newton-Dunn wishes to thank those in Leicester who took the time and effort to support him during the Euro Elections recently.

Bill agreed with the Liberal Democrat national Leader when he said that this is an extraordinary moment in British politics. Political and economic crises mean that great changes are possible -

In many ways, we have had a very successful few weeks since we won the House of Commons vote on the Gurkhas.

In the last week, with your help and support, we have:

Beaten Labour into third place in the local elections (with a record high vote share of 28%)

Won almost three times as many council seats as Labour (484 Liberal Democrat councillors to Labour's 178)

Added Bristol to the list of major cities run by Liberal Democrats that includes Cardiff, Liverpool, Newcastle, Sheffield and Edinburgh

Won five of the six county seats in Burnley from Labour (the BNP won the sixth)

Gained an extra MEP (and more or less maintained our vote share)

Elected Liberal Democrat MEPs in every part of England and Scotland, whilst narrowly failing to win a seat in Wales

Once again, Bill wishes to extend his thanks.
