A warm reception on a cold night

Local supporters of Liberal Democrat candidate Jenny Wilkinson braved the cold and rain yesterday evening to hear the concerns of Sutton Coldfield residents and explain the benefits of Liberal Democrat policies. Chief among these, of course, is the £50 billion that could be saved over the next 5 years by remaining in the EU and used for badly needed investment in public services. As Local Party Chairman Stephen Allsop said, "People told us it was the first time any party had knocked on their door ever. There was no love for Corbyn or Johnson, and even Tory voters seem to be holding their nose."
