Former Labour Councillor Chris Lloyd has joined the Liberal Democrats, becoming the Liberal Democrats’ first councillor in Greenwich since 2010.

Lloyd was first elected to Greenwich Council in 2014 as a Councillor for the Greenwich Peninsula ward and was elected to represent West Thamesmead ward in 2022.

Lloyd has been sitting as an independent councillor since resigning from the Labour Party in December 2023.

Commenting on his decision to join the Greenwich Borough Liberal Democrats Cllr. Lloyd said:

"I am delighted to have joined the Liberal Democrats. Here in Greenwich, the Liberal Democrats are a positive choice for improving public services, protecting vulnerable communities and tackling inequality.

“Pragmatism has always been an important part of my political outlook, and I wholeheartedly reject the current lurch into populism, both on the Left and Right.”

"It is easy to become disillusioned with politics and the political process, the current Conservative Government has a lot to answer for in that regard. That is why I am making a positive choice to join the Liberal Democrats and play my part in getting a fair deal for Greenwich residents".

Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Greenwich & Woolwich Chris Annous said:

"Chris brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience in providing the scrutiny and liberal voice that Greenwich Council needs.

“I look forward to working with Chris to champion the voices of Greenwich residents and to provide the opposition Greenwich & Woolwich deserves at the upcoming General Election, where with the Conservatives in freefall, the Liberal Democrats are the alternative to Labour.”
