Congratulations to April Pond on her selection today as the Liberal Democrat candidate for the Norwich North by-election.
Local campaigner and successful businesswoman April Pond said,
“I’m delighted to be selected for Norwich North and have the opportunity to follow the work of Ian Gibson.
“Talking to Norwich people, it is clear that they are angry and disillusioned with the way things are at the moment. People are concerned about jobs losses and practical worries and see this Government as failing miserably when they should be working hard to put things right. MPs’ expenses and an inability to put in place practical incentives for climate change leave us letdown, ignored and insulted.
“In Norwich North, we have a real opportunity to make a real change.
“It is clear that Labour are set for a very bad election. Charles Clarke has already said that Labour could finish third at the General Election. The Conservatives offer nothing but the same old politics that has let the people of Norwich down.
“On issue after issue, the Liberal Democrats have led the fight for real change while the Conservatives lagged behind. On the economy, on the environment and now on the real reform of politics, it is the Lib Dems that are offering something different.”
