Brexit Party standing down in Southampton Itchen shows Farage worried about Lib Dems stopping Brexit

November 12, 2019 9:35 AM

Responding to the news that Nigel Farage's Brexit Party will not be standing a candidate in Southampton Itchen, Liberal Democrat candidate Liz Jarvis said:

Liz Jarvis for Southampton Itchen"Nigel Farage's comments show he is running scared of the Liberal Democrats as the strongest Remain party in areas like Southampton. He knows that we are the only party at this election that can take seats like Southampton Itchen from the Conservatives and stop Brexit.

"Boris Johnson's Conservatives and the Brexit party are now one and the same. Both want to see an extreme Brexit that will damage our local economy, public services and limit opportunities for our children and grandchildren.

"Voters in Southampton Itchen have a historic opportunity at this election to elect a Liberal Democrat MP, stop Brexit and build a brighter future for our country."
