Chichester Labour Party A fresh voice for a fairer, greener Chichester
From the Chichester Observer website here
Chichester Labour Party has called for all parties opposed to a no-deal Brexit to enter into talks ahead of a possible general election.
Back in 2017 Labour candidate Mark Farwell secured 22 per cent of the vote in second place, with the Lib Dems polling 11 per cent and the Greens three per cent.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s attempt to call a general election was defeated by MPs last week, but a second vote is set to be put to the Commons today (Monday September 9).
Phil Wilson, from the Chichester Labour Party, organised the well-attended demonstration in the city centre last weekend against the proroguing of Parliament and the prospect of a no-deal Brexit.
He said: “Various parties had stood down in the recent Brecon and Radnorshire by-election which saw the Liberal Democrats to take the seat from the Tories. Both the Liberal Democrats and the Greens have been keen in the past to agree to the idea of a progressive alliance so they could be room for an agreement of some nature.”
At a demonstration held on Wednesday night outside Chichester MP Gillian Keegan’s constituency office Mr Wilson addressed the protest and issued a formal invitation to the Liberal Democrats and Green Party to enter into discussions about how to maximise and strength electors message against a no Deal Brexit.
He added: “Any snap election called during this grave constitutional crisis requires us all to be pragmatic in ensuring the best interests of our communities and the nation are put above the interests of our Parties.”
