Tim Farron – 2024 Comments on the Announcement of the General Election

The comments made by Tim Farron, the Liberal Democrat MP for Westmorland and Lonsdale, on 22 May 2024.

It’s on!

Rishi Sunak has just called a General Election for Thursday 4th July.

Serving our communities as our MP is an absolute privilege. Together we have achieved so much, whether it’s saving local vital health services or even running our train service on the Lakes Line!

In just a few weeks time, you get to decide who will be your MP for the next 5 years – me or a Conservative.

I would be honoured if you would put your faith in me to carry on serving you as we make our own luck and get things done.
