Inspiring Lib Dem Women: Kelly-Marie Blundell

On this International Women’s Day, we are celebrating some inspiring Lib Dem Women.

Since being selected PPC for Lewes, which requires just a 1% swing to take it back from the Tories, Kelly-Marie Blundell has been a campaigning force, increasing the local membership, helping to elect four new Lib Dem councillors in by-elections, campaigning against Brexit and just this Saturday collecting an impressive 700 signatures for the rights of resident EU citizens.

Kelly-Marie is an inveterate letter writer, with letters appearing regularly in the i Paper and the Evening Standard, and has campaigned on disability and welfare issues for many years. She was vice chair of the recent policy working group on welfare, whose work was adopted as party policy at the last conference, and is a driving force behind the 2016 March for Europe events and the upcoming Unite for Europe demonstration on 25th March.

Kelly-Marie is a liberal, an irresistible campaigner, a passionate speaker and an asset to her community. Lewes, previously held by Transport and Home Office minister, Norman Baker, must be worth a campaigning visit, any time in the next three years.

    From all the reports that I have heard Kelly-Marie is an excellent candidate and I wish her well.
    In view of the references within this post to the Lewes constituency, may I gently remind “The Voice” that all current PPC selections become null and void after 31st July.

    Further if the present recommendations of the Boundary Commission were to be implemented the nature of the constituency would alter substantially, losing the coastal towns of Seaford and Newhaven whilst gaining to the north of Lewes the town of Uckfield together with the rural communities in the western sector of the current Wealden constituency.

    You must have a very good chance in Lewes. If I lived there you’d have my vote.

    David Cameron said that the idea that there could be a Labour=SNP coalition was nonsense but useful (to the tories, quoted in All Out War, Tim Shipman, Sunday Times).
    Charles Kennedy said “Speaking as a Scot, they hate each other” (BBC Any Questions)
