Andrew Lomas was Labour's Parliamentary Candidate for Wycombe in 2010. He is also an active councillor in Kensington and Chelsea. We are delighted that he is joining the Lib Dem family. Speaking to Liberal Democrat Voice, Andrew said:
after over a decade as a member of the Labour Party in which I’ve variously been a council candidate, parliamentary candidate, branch secretary, borough campaigns chair, councillor, and deputy group leader, I’ve had enough. I’ve left a party only interested in talking to itself, and joined the Liberal Democrats.
Wycombe Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Spokesman, Steve Guy, said:
Labour's internal battles are preventing it from functioning as an effective opposition in a time of enormous national crisis. I have no doubt that Jeremy Corbyn's lamentable performance in the referendum campaign has contributed to the appalling mess we now find ourselves in. The Tories clearly have no idea how they are going to deliver Brexit without trashing our economy in the process.
More than ever, Britain needs an opposition which understands and believes in a positive vision for our future. Increasingly, people are seeing that it is the Liberal Democrats who have that vision, and the unity required to fight for it.
