*BREAKING* Lib Dem candidate statement regarding #Hastings #Rye #GE2017

May 12, 2017

Nick has been successfully nominated as the Liberal Democrat candidate for the General Election on 8 June


The local party has successfully submitted nomination papers on Tuesday. 

As there has been talk, in recent days, of a Hastings & Rye progressive alliance, I make the following statement as the Liberal Democrat candidate for MP:

‘I confirm that over the past week I have had talks with James Corre at Compass. I have been clear that with the imperative of reducing the impending Tory landslide at Westminster, joined-up actions are required across East Sussex.

‘I have been clear that if Labour Party candidates in Eastbourne and Lewes are prepared to make public their commitment to divert resource elsewhere, and not to impede Liberal Democrat victories in these seats, then I am willing to make a similar commitment here. 

‘There was a request made via Compass to be able to take these draft statements to my local party this evening, but nothing has been made available by Labour. Therefore the Liberal Democrats will continue to represent those opposed to Brexit in Hastings & Rye; those who want more investment in our NHS; those opposed to schools cuts across our constituency.’

  1. Hi there, when you say ‘nothing has been made available by Labour.’, what does this mean, that the negotiation is over? that they are still thinking about it? that you have run out of time to hear a decision from them??????

      The full sentence (as above) reads:

      ‘There was a request made via Compass to be able to take these draft statements to my local party this evening, but nothing has been made available by Labour.’

      That means that I asked for statements of intent and received nothing in time to get the collective view of my local party.

      But seeing as it is important to be clear about these things, at the time of this reply to you, I have still not received anything.

  2. Seeing as ‘nothing has been made available by’ the Lib Dems in response to my question above, I absolutely refuse to agree to agree to any deal with them in the future, even if it would have helped to get the Tories out.

  3. Thanks for your response, please feel free to delete my second message which is now redundant.
