Southampton Lib Dems welcome Unite to Remain agreement

November 7, 2019 2:15 PM

Local Lib Dems have welcomed the decision of the Green Party to stand aside at this election.

C Fletcher (Craig Fletcher)Local Lib Dem candidate for Romsey & Southampton North Craig Fletcher said:

"We thank the Green Party for this brave decision. Brexit is a national crisis. This groundbreaking agreement, facilitated by the Unite to Remain campaign group, will help to secure more Remain supporting MPs in the next Parliament. We also thank all the candidates who have generously agreed to stand aside in other seats affected by the Unite to Remain arrangements."

"It is deeply disappointing that Labour Remainers would not step up too, but they failed the test on backing a People's Vote and they failed the test to build a new Remain Parliament. They are still the Brexit party."

"The people of Romsey & Southampton North deserve a strong voice in Parliament, to stop Brexit and fight for a brighter future for Britain. The Liberal Democrats are the only Party who can deliver that brighter future for our area at this election."
