Lib Dems: This is a chance for voters in Nottingham to prevent a hard Brexit

People in Nottingham should vote for the Liberal Democrats to prevent a hard Brexit and protect the local economy, the party's local candidates have said today.

On Tuesday the Prime Minister called a snap General Election to be held on the 8th June.

The Liberal Democrats are standing on a clear platform to prevent a hard Brexit by staying in the Single Market, and to give the British people the final say on the Brexit deal through a referendum.

Barry Holliday, Liberal Democrat candidate for Nottingham East commented:

"This election is a huge opportunity for voters in Nottingham East to change the direction of our country and prevent a disastrous hard Brexit.

"People in Nottingham East voted decisively to remain in the EU, and certainly did not vote for the extreme form of Brexit that Theresa May has imposed on us after being backed by Labour. Areas like Sherwood and Mapperley had extremely high Remain votes and those residents deserve a voice that will represent their feelings in Parliament.

"For all those who want to protect our local economy by staying in the Single Market and ensure the people have the final say over what comes next, this is your chance.

"The Liberal Democrats are the real opposition to the Conservative Brexit Government and the only party fighting for a Britain that is open, tolerant and united."

The Liberal Democrats' candidates in the city's three constituencies are:

Barry Holliday - Nottingham East
Tad Jones - Nottingham North
Tony Sutton - Nottingham South
