Thank you so much the people of Liverpool


The Lib Dem team for Liverpool say, “Thank You” to the people of Liverpool for the wonderful and friendly reception we have received during the 2017 Geberal Election

I am writing and posting this on behalf of all the Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidates in Liverpool.

Firstly I would like to thank you for the courteous and friendly reception that we have received as we have criss-crossed the City talking to people or responding to the thousands of e-mails that we have received and corresponded with. So many people have complimented us the work that we are doing as the only opposition to the disastrous Anderson regime in the City. In fact many of you have wanted to engage us more on crucial local issues such as vanity schemes, the sale of parts of our Parks and the inefficiency of the Council than on the national issues.

We have dealt on the doorstep and in the media and at a limited number of public meetings with fox hunting; the state of the NHS; hard or soft Brexit; social care, the state of our Parks and how to stop Joe Anderson developing them; persecution of Christians; International Aid; benefits …… the list is almost endless! We hope we have replied to all the e-mails sent to us but if not please accept our apologies we have each had hundreds of them so some may have been overlooked.

We have particularly campaigned on Brexit because the consequences of a hard Brexit outside the single market will have terrible consequences for Liverpool and on the NHS where for more than 30 years successive governments have failed to prepare for the increasing number of elderly and the health problems that so many of them have.

The decision now is yours. We just want to remind you of one thing. That the seats in Liverpool will be won either by Lib Dems or by Labour. The Tories have not elected an MP in Liverpool since 1979. They have not even elected a councillor here since 1985. Last year in the Mayoral elections I came a very clear second to Mayor Anderson with the Greens getting less than half my vote and the Tory losing his deposit.

Whatever the result we can assure you that we will continue to campaign on behalf of the people of Liverpool all year round. For Liberal Democrats an election campaign is only part of our work. We campaign all year round with people from within the communities that we represent and hope to represent because at the end of the day that is what politics should be about.

Kind regards,


Cllr Richard Kemp CBE

Liberal Democrat Candidate for Liverpool Wavertree

  1. Penultimate paragraph, second line “seats will be won “by me or by Labour” sounds a little self-obsessed. “By Lib Dems or Labour might be better.
