On Monday 5th December Tom Brake, MP for Carshalton and Wallington was amongst the first to welcome Sarah, his new London colleague to Parliament, following 's her stunning victory in the Richmond Park by-election.
Sarah joins Tom as the second Lib Dem MP elected for London, after storming to victory by overturning Goldsmith's huge 23,000 majority to become the newest MP for Richmond Park and North Kingston.
Welcoming Sarah to Parliament, Tom said:
“Sarah will make a fantastic addition to our Parliamentary team. Her stunning victory in Richmond shows that the Liberal Democrats are now the only real opposition to a damaging Conservative Hard Brexit.
“It makes a wonderful change to round off 2016 with tolerance, liberalism and open-heartedness winning the day in politics. I look forward to fighting alongside Sarah for a better London and a better United Kingdom.”
