LIBERAL Democrats in Coventry have put Brexit at the centre of their election campaign, pledging to stop Britain leaving the European Union if elected.
The Lib Dems said a vote for their party will help stop Brexit, delivering a “remain bonus” that could transform local public services and boost the economy.
Nukey Proctor, Coventry North East candidate, said: “For too many people in Coventry, things aren’t working as they should be.
“Local families who are working hard and playing by the rules have been let down. The Conservatives and Labour are stuck in the past, failing time and again to deliver for local families and businesses. The Liberal Democrats have an ambitious plan for the future of our country, where every single person and community can thrive.
“That starts with stopping Brexit and investing a £50bn remain bonus in cities like Coventry which have been let down and taken for granted by Tory and Labour governments.”
Coventry North West candidate Greg Judge added: “Getting the UK out of Boris Johnson’s Brexit mess offers Coventry the chance of a fresh start. We can put the gridlock behind us and focus on local issues like revitalising our city centre, tackling homelessness and secure fresh investments to protect our place as a powerhouse in innovation and manufacturing.
“Boris Johnson lost his majority, was defeated on multiple occasions in Parliament, unlawfully shut down democracy, and was forced to apologise to the Queen.
“Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour is divided on Brexit – the biggest issue for the UK since the end of the second world war – and is refusing to back remain.
“If the Conservatives or Labour win at this election, it’s Coventry that will lose. Our message to the voters is clear – if you want to stop Brexit and build a brighter future, you need to vote for the Liberal Democrats.”
