    While disappointed by this morning's result it is time to accept the democratic will of Britons. We must now reunite our country.

    We were #INtogether during the campaign but now is the time for us all to come together as a country and respect the future direction we as a country have chosen.

    Therefore now, more than ever, we need a strong Liberal voice to help shape our country into one that is outward looking, inclusive, with equal rights for all and respect for each other.
