    Makerfield Liberal Democrat candidate John Skipworth was interviewed by YLE Uutiset yesterday making our message clear to our EU friends that even in towns like Wigan we are out to Stop Brexit!

    Following the interview, John commented "The Liberal Democrats have been clear on Brexit throughout the entire process, we have campaign ed and continue to campaign for a peoples vote and with this election even offering to revoke Article 50 in a Liberal Democrat majority government. Locally we have seen a surge in membership and climb of support over the last three years which is a clear indication that we are the strongest voice for remain in the borough"

    Stuart Thomas

    Your parliamentary candidate for Wigan

    Stuart lives in Wigan with his partner Caroline. He joined the Liberal Democrats in 2015 shortly after the end of the coalition, realising that the LibDems where actually the voice of reason during the previous government. He has always had a strong desire to help others, even those he has never known personally, it was at this point he realised the opportunity to help more people had been presented to him. However, not long after joining the local party it was apparent a lot of work was needed to get it in a position where it could be a viable contender to win council seats and even a decent shot at winning a parliamentary seat. Not deterred by this task or any task placed ahead of him Stuart began on a quest that would require him to learn new skills and interact with the public like he had never done.
