Barnsley Liberal Democrats today selected Dominic Carman as their candidate for the March 3 Barnsley Central Parliamentary by-election, at a hustings in the constituency.
Carman, son of the late George Carman QC, and biographer of BNP leader Nick Griffin, previously stood for the Lib Dems in Barking, East London at the 2010 General Election.
Commenting, Dominic Carman said:
I am honoured to be selected to fight this election for the Liberal Democrats.
I want to be an ambitious ambassador for Barnsley. If elected, you won’t find me with my feet up in Westminster, I’ll be out there fighting to bring jobs to the area.
Labour take places like Barnsley for granted, and parties like the BNP would only make things worse. I’ve spent the last seven years fighting the BNP and I will fight just as hard for the people of Barnsley.
