Welcome to my posts about politics; mainly British politics and with quite a lot of political opinion polling and election law thrown in too.


Conservative peer campaigning for the Liberal Democrats in Cities of London and Westminster

Chuka Umunna and Patience Wheatcroft

Westminster Liberal Democrats bring the news:

Conservative Baroness Patience Wheatcroft [has] joined local members out campaigning in Paddington and endorsed Chuka Umunna in the Cities of London & Westminster.

Baroness Wheatcroft is a Conservative Peer, a former Editor of The Sunday Telegraph, and a former Editor of the The Wall Street Journal Europe.

Commenting when canvassing with Chuka Umunna and Caroline Pidgeon AM near Paddington Station, Baroness Wheatcroft said:

“I have previously supported the Conservatives but could not possibly do so at this General Election. The party no longer represents my values, whereas Chuka is pro-enterprise, pro-European, and has liberal, internationalist views which chime with our community here and what I believe.

“We need someone who will work to stop Boris Johnson’s Brexit and, in leaving Labour, Chuka has shown he will never facilitate Jeremy Corbyn entering Downing Street. That is why I am supporting him and the Liberal Democrats in Westminster.”
