Stephen Lloyd MP intends to stand for the Lib Dems in Eastbourne

Stephen Lloyd MP has posted a YouTube video for his Eastbourne constituents. In it, he says that he has kept his word and voted for a EU exit withdrawal bill four times in parliament. He adds that, now he has done that, the slate is wiped clean with the forthcoming general election, so he will now be a ‘full throated’ “remainer”. He states that intends to stand in Eastbourne as the Liberal Democrat candidate.

This now means that there are 20 Liberal Democrat MPs in the House of Commons.

Here is Stephen’s video:

    Can someone confirm that the LibDems will stand down in Beaconsfield to give Dominic Grieve, standing as an Independent, a clear run against whoever the Tories put up against him? I hope so.

    Good for you, Stephen! And well done to the Party for agreeing and welcoming Stephen back.

    Stephen Lloyd is today, 17/11/2019, on the BBC1 Sunday Politics (Southeast) replying about his own position in Eastbourne and about Canterbury. He has kept his word to his constituency. He supports the ‘strategic’ view of the leadership. A general election is new.
    Conservative Greg Clark (Tunbridge Wells) is on the same programme explaining his change since the Tory whip was restored to him, and some others.
