Euro Candidates Launch Election Campaign With Strong Message On Europe

Top Euro Candidates lined up at the Liberal Democrat Spring Conference in York to launch their campaign for the forthcoming elections with a strong message “we are fighting to stay in Europe for a stronger economy”.

Eastern Region Liberal Democrat MEP Andrew Duff was joined by South Cambridgeshire MEP candidate Belinda Brooks-Gordon.

Belinda, a Girton resident and ex-County councillor for Cambridgeshire, is joined at the top of the Euro list, by barrister Jo Hayes, from Colchester, Essex.

Belinda said: "We Liberal Democrats want Britain to stay in the EU because we are fighting for a stronger economy.

"Millions of British jobs are linked to our trade in with the EU and being in Europe gives us more strength when making trade deals with global players like the US, China, India, and Brazil.

'We are the party of in - In Europe, In Work, and we are keen to hear from businesses, and business people in the Cambridgeshire region to join us as we campaign to support Business for Europe.

"We are running an energetic campaign on the positive things Europe brings. It is vital for jobs, growth and the economy.  This puts millions of pounds back in your pocket by making it easier for British businesses to export and slashing red tape for small businesses"
