Two parliamentary candidates have been announced by the Liberal Democrats.

The Beaconsfield branch of the Liberal Democrats have announced that Rob Castell will campaign in the town.

The future of the seat is currently unclear, after Dominic Grieve’s deselection from the Conservative party having voted against the party last week.

Rob Castell said: “Everyone is an armchair or social media politician these days and I decided to actually get out there and do something.

“I love this area and community is hugely important to me.

“At a time when so many people are distanced by the political world, I think it’s important to have more ordinary citizens getting stuck in. We all need to talk to each other more.”

Chair of the Buckinghamshire South Lib Dems, Carol Linton, said: "I am delighted and incredibly pleased that Rob Castell has chosen the Beaconsfield constituency to pursue the changes he wants to see in our society.

"Our second place in the European Elections this year showed that the Liberal Democrats can win in Beaconsfield constituency.

“The Conservative party is struggling over their future vision for the UK and with the reorganisation of local government into the unitary Buckinghamshire Council. This is the time for Liberal Democrats to make an impact and bring voters expectations to the fore.”

Chiltern Liberal Democrats have also announced that Dan Gallagher will be the Liberal Democrat candidate for Chesham and Amersham.

The announcement was made on social media, where Mr Gallagher said: “I would like to say that it is an honour to be nominated for this role.

“I hope to be out there, to meet voters, whether they previously been Labour or Conservative voters and ask them to vote for the Liberal Democrats.

“We are the solid, hard centre of British politics and it is the centre that should overcome, for the centre is sensible.”
