*This is the last election in which Paul Sample stood as the Liberal Democrats’ candidate for Salisbury & South Wiltshire.
I am absolutely overwhelmed by the support I've received during the election campaign, not only from Liberal Democrats' supporters, but by so many strangers who have come up to me on the street, talked to me, and wished me well. I won't be going to Westminster as your MP, but I will continue fighting for every one of you, to make Salisbury & South Wiltshire a more open, tolerant, and fair society for all.Posted by Paul Sample for Salisbury & South Wiltshire on Donnerstag, 8.

“It is an enormous honour to be asked to stand as the Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate for Salisbury. I am very pleased to have increased our share of the vote. In 2015 the Lib Dems came 4th, with 10.1% of the vote. This time we have come a very heartening and respectable third, with 11.3% of the vote.
I’d like to thank the hundreds of people who got behind my campaign, and donated money, put up posters, delivered leaflets and supported me on social media. I’ve had a huge amount of fun these last two months.
I’ve lost a lot of weight and I’ve got a fantastic sun tan. I’ve also had the chance to meet up again with hundreds of friends and acquaintances all across the constituency. It’s been a really heart-warming experience. I now look forward to returning to my role as a Chairman of the Bench at the Magistrates Court, and to my “day job” of running The Mustard Agency and working with senior leaders in UK schools.”
