In light of the tragic events in Manchester last night, we’ll be suspending all campaigning today, and would be grateful if you and your local parties did the same. This includes canvassing, leafleting, phonebanking, press and social media work.
Co-leader Jonathan Bartley has issued this statement:
“Our thoughts are with those affected by this appalling incident in Manchester. For young people to be targeted in this way is utterly atrocious. As ever our emergency services have done us proud – and we pay tribute to the police, firefighters and paramadics who stepped up in this time of need. Our country will never be divided by terror. The people of Manchester showed last night just how strong the bond of friendship is between the people who live on these islands – and in the coming days and weeks we’ll show that we won’t let terrorism tear us apart.”
