Liberal Democrats select trio of would-be MPs in Bristol

Bristol Liberal Democrats Prospective Parliamentary Candidates

Bristol Liberal Democrats have just completed selections of Prospective Parliamentary candidates for three of the four constituencies:

  • Bristol East: Nicholas Coombes
  • Bristol South: Andrew Brown
  • Bristol West (the former constituency of Stephen Williams): James Cox

The local newspaper reports of James Cox’s selection:

“I am humbled and excited to have been given this opportunity,” the Bristol University Masters student said. I am looking forward to working hard in Bristol West and offering real change for residents.

“I am excited to get out into the community, campaigning on issues such as ending injustice in our mental health services, creating real opportunity through our education system, and fighting hard for a People’s Vote on the Brexit deal.

“When we live in a constituency that voted almost 80 per cent to remain in the EU, and we have an MP who won’t fight for an exit from Brexit, I am happy to give voice to those who, like me, believe that Brexit is not a done deal and we can still choose to remain.”

There’s a full list of Liberal Democrat Parliamentary candidate selections so far here.

UPDATE: The Liberal Democrats have stood aside in Bristol West as part of the Remain Alliance.

  1. Congratulations to the candidates but my first reaction was dismay to see all 3 were men!
    There are plenty of outstanding women candidates just waiting to prove themselves.
