Jo Swinson elected leader of the Liberal Democrats

Jo Swinson is the new leader of the Liberal Democrats, beating Ed Davey in the contest to succeed Vince Cable.

In her first speech after the result was declared, Jo said "There is no limit to my ambition for our party and for our movement.


"I am ready to take our party into a general election and win it.

And, if we want to be the party of government, we need to speak to the whole country, no matter how people voted three years ago.

We need to start by being frank about what is going wrong - because the system we have isn’t working for people or for our planet."
