The local election pact in Broxtowe has been the most high-profile example of Liberal Democrats making electoral pacts with others. But no more:
Sal Brinton, the Liberal Democrat President, said of this decision:
Liberal Democrats across the country are challenging Theresa May’s Conservative Brexit government. As in previous elections, a limited number of local parties are considering how best to provide that challenge in their constituencies. In Brighton Pavilion, local Liberal Democrats have decided to pursue that challenge jointly with the local Green Party. we welcome that constructive collaboration.
It will now be worth keeping a close eye on what the Green Party does in Lewes and Eastbourne, two nearby constituencies which the Liberal Democrats are trying to regain from the Conservatives.
