Warrington Liberal Democrats have selected Cllr Bob Barr and Cllr Stefan Krizanac to stand as the candidates for Warrington South and Warrington North in the General Election. Both these candidates stood in the 2015 election.
Cllr Barr said, “On 8 June every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to change the direction of the country and stop a hard Brexit. We offer the people of
Warrington a real alternative and a vision for Britain that is open, tolerant and united. Teresa May’s hard Brexit agenda will be a disaster for the country and risks crashing our economy and leaving us isolated on the global stage.
The Prime Minister promised on several occasions that she would not call a snap election. Yet she broke this promise. Since she called it, over 12,000 people have joined the Liberal Democrats and there are hundreds of thousands of people out there who support us and want to change the direction we are headed.”
Cllr Krizanac added, “Jeremy Corbyn would be a disaster for the country too. The Party is hopelessly divided and their leader has no plan for the economy and offers no leadership. Every time it has mattered, he has given the Prime Minister a blank cheque on Brexit. They plan to reverse the cuts in Corporation Tax but they have already spent the sum raised many times over by pledging this money in ten different ways. We will be honest with people about the bold solutions needed to tackle problems like the crisis in NHS and social care.”
