We are excited to let you know that today Nicola Horlick has been appointed as our candidate for Chelsea & Fulham at the next parliamentary election. This is a game-changer for Chelsea & Fulham, and a chance to remove the Conservative MP, change the parliamentary maths, and get an outstanding Liberal Democrat MP into parliament.
Nicola has worked in financial services for 36 years. She has been a life-long Liberal Democrat and her father stood as a parliamentary candidate during the 1970s. She strongly believes that Brexit will be disastrous for our country and so that is why she has chosen this moment to stand for parliament.
“The people of Chelsea & Fulham voted 71% to remain in the EU in the 2016 referendum and have not had their views properly represented by their current MP,” explains Nicola. “By stopping Brexit, we can start solving the real problems facing our society – strengthening our NHS, improving our schools and addressing the climate crisis. The Liberal Democrats topped the poll in the May 2019 European elections here in this constituency and I’m asking people to lend me their vote to stop Brexit.”
We have to stop Brexit
“Brexit is an utter shambles. It’s toxic for Britain and the British people,” comments Carmel McLoughlin, Chair of Kensington & Chelsea Liberal Democrats. “It’s a false promise, the biggest lie in British politics, dressed up in the veil of patriotism and as support for our NHS. The truth is the opposite – it leaves Britain isolated and begging the US and China to recreate trade deals we already have, and the effect on the NHS is simply devastating. Nicola knows this and will stop at nothing to call it out and hold to account local MP Greg Hands who has completely failed to represent his constituents or put the country above his party. Time’s up for Conservatives in Chelsea.”
We’re running campaign days, action days, social media campaigns, and a series of local events.
