Jo Swinson MP has been elected as the new leader of the Liberal Democrats party.
The East Dunbartonshire MP won over 50 per cent of the vote share.
The 39-year-old succeeds Vince Cable, said she would do “whatever it takes to stop Brexit”.
What does this mean for the self-employed?
IPSE (the Association of the Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed) has welcomed Swinson and called on her to back a raft of measures to support the UK’s self-employed.
These include maternity pay, tackling late payment, and supporting disabled freelancers.
