In one of the least surprising pieces of news about the Liberal Democrat candidate selections for a possible early general election, the party’s newly appointed EU spokesperson and book author, Nick Clegg, has been reselected in Sheffield Hallam:
I am really proud to have been selected again to run as the Liberal Democrat candidate for Sheffield Hallam.
Nationally the country is in crisis. Both the Conservatives and Labour are focused entirely on in-fighting while the economy worsens, threatening jobs, public services and our efforts to build the houses Britain so badly needs.
The Liberal Democrats are the only party committed to protecting Britain’s role in the heart of Europe and have committed to fighting a future General Election on that platform.
The Conservatives have destroyed their reputation for economic competence with this reckless EU referendum. Labour has given up even trying to speak to the British people, and is engaged in a vicious fight with itself. We, meanwhile, are selecting candidates in key seats.
Only the Liberal Democrats are an open, optimistic and united party committed to spreading opportunity for the next generation and focus on re-building the British economy to protect jobs and services.
