    Nottingham Lib Dems announce new generation of candidates to stand in by-elections

    Nottingham Lib Dems have announced a set of candidates who represent a new generation in the local party - all are under 35 and two have never been candidates before.

    Change Nottingham's future, for everyone.

    Rebecca Procter is 18 and joined the Liberal Democrats this year, having left the Labour Party in 2015. Rebecca is standing in Basford Ward. "I feel that the Labour Party has taken people for granted in recent years. Their large majority doesn't help the people in the wards they serve. Basford deserves a voice that isn't afraid to be critical when it needs to be. I'm not afraid of being that voice. I want to be a voice for people no matter their personal needs or circumstances; I'm a student with learning difficulties so I'm well aware that sometimes systems aren't designed with everyone in mind. I will speak up for anyone who feels the council doesn't work for them."

    Theresa May will this week mark her anniversary of becoming Prime Minister by making a speech which seems to suggest that she needs the help of Jeremy Corbyn and Labour to deliver Brexit. Commenting on the speech, Liberal Democrat Shadow Brexit secretary Tom Brake said:

    "A call for Labour to contribute is superfluous. On the single biggest issue of our generation, Brexit, Corbyn isn't contributing, he is cheerleading. He has already swallowed the PMs line hook, line and sinker. But at least Theresa May knows where to find Jeremy Corbyn, it's in the same voting lobby as her, helping her, like he has before, to deliver this divisive, hard Brexit.

    "The PM is promising to take big decisions in the long-term interests of Britain. Her first such decision must be to negotiate to keep the UK in the Single Market and the Customs Union. This is in the long term interests of British prosperity, jobs and families.
