People in Leyton and Wanstead should vote for the Liberal Democrats to prevent a hard Brexit and protect the local economy, Ben Sims the party’s local candidate has said today.
The Prime Minister today called a snap General Election to be held on the 8th June.
The Liberal Democrats are standing on a clear platform to prevent a hard Brexit by staying in the Single Market and to give the British people the final say on the Brexit deal through a referendum.
Ben Sims, Liberal Democrat candidate for Leyton and Wanstead commented:
“Whichever party you usually vote for, this election is the last chance for voters in Leyton and Wanstead to send a message to their Brexit supporting Labour MP and the Conservative government. This election could change the direction of our country and prevent a disastrous hard Brexit.
“Despite people in Leyton and Wanstead voting decisively to remain in the EU, John Cryer supports Brexit. Residents certainly did not vote for the extreme form of Brexit that Theresa May has imposed on us after being backed by Labour and our Brexit supporting MP.
“For all those who want to protect our local economy by staying in the Single Market and ensure the people have the final say over what comes next, this is your chance.
“The Liberal Democrats are the real opposition to the Conservative Brexit Government and the only party fighting for a Britain that is open, tolerant and united.”
