North East Essex Liberal Democrats are fighting hard to keep our area open, tolerant and united. We are standing a candidate in both Harwich and North Essex and Clacton constituencies. With the nation divided and all other major parties failing to offer a positive and viable alternative, it is incredibly important now more than ever to stand up for liberal values.

Clacton - David Grace

David GraceClacton Liberal Democrats have re-selected David Grace to be their candidate for the General Election. Mr Grace, a charity administrator, thanked local members for their confidence and added:

"People in Clacton are angry and rightly so. It is extraordinary that an area so close to London has been so neglected by successive governments. We don't have enough doctors and we must fight the threatened closure of the Minor Injuries Unit. Our schools face cuts in funding of up to 19% which will mean fewer teachers and larger classes. The elderly and the sick and Theresa May's JAMs ("Just about managing") all struggle to cope on limited incomes while benefits are capped. UKIP told everyone that leaving the European Union would solve their problems. People are becoming more angry as they discover that this was a lie. The Tories' hard Brexit will inevitable damage our economy and Liberal Democrats will fight to stop it by giving the voters a chance to vote on the deal."
