Bromley Lib Dems welcome the general election being called as the best opportunity to Stop Brexit. We are ready to stand on a clear platform: a Liberal Democrat government would Revoke Article 50, retain Britain’s place in Europe and get on with tackling the issues that have been neglected for the last four years.
The Lib Dems won the European elections in the capital in May, topping the poll overall and winning outright in 16 boroughs, reflecting London’s liberal, open identity.
In the Bromley Borough our outstanding, diverse and committed candidates are ready to be the voice of reason for our local communities. “Local people are realising the LibDems represent their liberal, internationalist, open values more than any other party. And they're finding we have attractive policies on the vital issues they care about like the climate emergency, the NHS, education, housing and crime." said Bromley & Chislehurst Candidate Julie Ireland.
Chloe-Jane Ross is standing in Beckenham against Bob Stewart, a staunch pro-leave MP. "The Lib Dems have been the loudest, proudest voice for Remain for the last three years and a half years, tabling 17 bids for a People’s Vote - which Labour have failed to back, leaving a general election as the only way to exit Brexit. Beckenham is a Remain constituency and Beckenham needs an MP who reflects those views. "
Allan Tweddle is standing in Orpington, formally the seat of Jo Johnson. “Two Conservative Prime Ministers have incompetently tried to deliver Brexit, threatening our country’s future prosperity. Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party has failed to take up any clear position on the most important political issue of our time, and facilitated Tory Brexit attempts. We need to win this argument and win this election so we can cancel Brexit and get on with dealing with the real issues of today: the climate crisis, the strain on our NHS, the rise of knife crime and our education system being pushed to breaking point.”
We have the momentum. We have the candidates. And with your help, we have the winning campaign and we will Stop Brexit.
