The Liberal Democrats have today announced their list of MEP candidates in the South East constituency for the European elections on the 23rd May.

Catherine Bearder and Anthony Hook - IN Europe, IN Work

The diverse list of candidates includes a current MEP, Councillors and other hard working community activists.

The Liberal Democrats will fight the elections as an unapologetically pro-European Party campaigning hard to stop Brexit and restore Britain's tarnished reputation in Europe.

Lead MEP candidate for the South East region, Catherine Bearder MEP, said:

"Today we've announced a strong, diverse mix of candidates ready to positively represent the South East region in the European Union."

"We will fight these elections on a clear message: a Liberal Democrat vote is a vote to stop Brexit."

Antony Hook, Faversham's elected representative on Kent County Council said:

"Liberal Democrats are determined to give a voice to the millions of people who demand better than Brexit Britain."

"With 16 years' service as a barrister including with international experience, I believe I am well placed to skilfully represent South East England in Brussels at this critical moment for our country."

Judith Bunting, Activist and TV producer, from the West Berkshire area, commented:

"If elected, I will work in Europe to reduce Carbon emissions, combat climate change and tackle the cross border crime that plagues our communities. I am committed to stopping Brexit. The Liberal Democrats are the only true party of remain. "

Martin Tod, Hampshire County Councillor & Winchester City Councillor, said today:

"I am sick of seeing footage of Nigel Farage and Dan Hannan spout nonsense in the European Parliament as they betray our national interest. As a Liberal Democrat MEP, I will go back at them, hard."

"Britain should be leading in Europe, not leaving."
