The Prime Minister today [18th April] called a snap General Election to be held on the 8th June. The local Liberal Democrats have chosen local resident and campaigner Dawn Barnes to stand against the current Labour MP in Hornsey & Wood Green. The seat was formerly held by Lib Dem MP Lynne Featherstone.
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.
Dawn Barnes, Liberal Democrat candidate for Hornsey and Wood Green commented:
“This election is a huge opportunity for voters in Haringey to change the direction of our country and prevent a disastrous hard Brexit.
“People in Hornsey & Wood Green 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.
“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.”
