Lunar New Year Message from Tim Farron MP, Leader of the Liberal Democrats

February 3, 2016 11:45 AM

Tim Farron MP in front of Westminster"It is with great pleasure that I wish UK's Chinese diaspora communities a very Happy Lunar New Year on the advent of the Year of the Monkey!

I am delighted that ties between UK and China have strengthened and deepened over the years and am deeply appreciative of the many contributions the Chinese living in the UK have made to our economy, enriching our local communities.

I am particularly proud that we have a British Chinese candidate from my party standing in the Mayoral and London Assembly elections this May. I therefore ask for your support and vote for the Liberal Democrats to elect the first British Chinese London Assembly candidate this May.

With new challenges confronting the world that we live in, I believe we will need to be resourceful and forward looking, and work together within Europe for greater progress and for peace.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful festive season and a happy, healthy and prosperous year in 2016.

Xin Nian Kuai Le! Gong Hey Fatt Choy!

Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Tim Farron MP"
