Thurrock’s Lib-Dem candidate slams PM Boris Johnson’s new Brexit deal

THE Prime Minister’s speech in Manchester has been roundly criticised for tabling proposals that he knows will not be acceptable to the European Union, to our friends in the Republic of Ireland, or to the vast majority of voters in Northern Ireland. By doing so and refusing to ask for an extension to Article 50, he is accused of moving us full speed ahead to a damaging, no deal Brexit claims Thurrock’s Lib-Dem candidate.

Kevin McNamara, Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Thurrock, said:
“When you strip away the bluff and bluster, this was a speech by a Prime Minister who is determined to crash us out of the EU without a deal.

“Fanatically repeating ‘Get Brexit Done’ does not give any comfort to the cancer patient worried about accessing chemotherapy, the diabetic concerned about imports of insulin, or the factory worker whose job is on the line. Getting Brexit done puts their lives and their jobs at risk, and that is why Liberal Democrats are working hard to stop it.

“And usual, Labour is nowhere on the biggest issue facing the country. What do they believe exactly?

“Everybody should be asking Thurrock’s Tory MP this question: how many unnecessary deaths and redundancies is she willing to accept to deliver a no deal Brexit on October 31?”


  1. What a prat this Lib Dem candidate is. We all know that the Lib Dems are traitors and have no respect for democracy. So why he is banging on here is beyond me, he is just insulting to the people of Thurrock, who incidentally voted to leave the EU not stay in….Bloody idiot.

  2. If there was a democracy we would be brexit free by now, the majority have ignored our democratic vote!

  3. During the 2017 General Election Mr McNamara the Liberal Democrat candidate for Thurrock obtained a mere 798 votes.

    Thurrock voted 72.3% voted leave during the referendum.

    I’m sure the good folk of Thurrock will very much appreciate the Liberal Democrat candidate telling them that the Liberal Democrat policy is to stick two fingers up at them and remain a member of the European Union.

    Mr McNamara is continuing the Project Fear scaremongering. I’m sure his enthusiasm for the European Union and ignoring how 72.3% of the folk of Thurrock will go down well on the doorstep when he starts canvassing for votes…
