THE BROMSGROVE Liberal Democrats have already chosen their candidate to stand in the general election on June 8.
Neil Lewis was quick to criticise Prime Minister Theresa May about her decision to call an early poll and made several pledges in a statement to The Standard.
He said: “This election is all about Brexit. It’s a straight fight between Hard Brexit Conservatives (meekly supported by Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour) against the pro Single Market Lib Dems.
“A `hard’ Brexit deal will hurt many Bromsgrove people and businesses and we will be campaigning to stop Mrs May and Sajid Javid silencing their opponents.”
He said the Bromsgrove Liberal Democrats were ready to battle to ‘keep Britain open, tolerant and united’.
“The Conservatives offer the hardest of all Brexits, a rupture with our single market and a break with trade deals covering 50 plus nations whilst risking our economic future simply to please the extreme views of Tory backbenchers.
“The Government has no answers to the real problems facing our country and without a proper opposition, Labour have been letting the Tories getting away with it all.
“The Lib Dems have been fighting for people to have a say on the final EU deal, to make sure we are listened to properly once we know and understand the facts of what can actually be negotiated rather than the lies and falsehoods we heard last June.”
