Firstly, thank you to everyone who voted for me in Solihull during this general election.
Whilst the result is not what I hoped for, I am immensely proud of our campaign in Solihull and also in our other borough seat of Meriden, where my colleague Laura McCarthy returned the 6th best Lib Dem result in the West Midlands.
Congratulations to Julian Knight, elected for a 3rd time as MP for Solihull. I wish him well.
I would like to thank everyone who has helped with this general election campaign. Our achievements in Solihull are due entirely to the support and hard work of our tireless members, volunteers and activists. I owe you all a massive debt of gratitude.
Finally, I wish you all a happy Christmas. Now that the general election is over, we must all work to build a better future for Solihull and for our country.
