  • Daniel Norton Marching to Stop Brexit
    Article: Nov 12, 2019

    Responding to the news that Nigel Farage's Brexit Party will not be standing a candidate in North East Bedfordshire, Liberal Democrat candidate Daniel Norton said:

    "Nigel Farage's comments show he is running scared of the Liberal Democrats as the strongest Remain party in areas like North East Beds. He knows that we are the only party at this election that can take seats like North East Beds 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.'
