High profile anti-Brexit protester selected by Lib Dems for Cynon Valley

News of an eye-catching new Liberal Democrat selection from Wales:

Outspoken anti-Brexit campaigner Steve Bray will stand as a Liberal Democrat candidate in Wales in the upcoming general election.

Mr Bray, a rare coin dealer from Port Talbot, has become well-known in Westminster for bellowing “Stop Brexit” through a three-foot megaphone during news broadcasts on College Green.

Sporting a blue and yellow top hat and a UK flag, the activist has spent every day outside parliament protesting against Brexit since 2017.

However Mr Bray could soon be on the other side of the iron gates, as the Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson revealed he would contest Cynon Valley, in South Wales, for her party. [The Independent]
