Well thats nice! The Lib Dems won’t stand in Brighton

Its good to have friends like these I suppose!

The Lib Dems have agreed not to field an election candidate in Brighton, in a bid to help Green co-leader Caroline Lucas get re-elected.

The local party made the tactical decision not to oppose the Greens in Brighton Pavilion at a meeting tonight.

Labour still intend to field a candidate in the seat in June’s election, with five candidates vying for selection.

Lib Dem President Sal Brinton said: “ Liberal Democrats across the country are challenging Theresa May’s Conservative Brexit government. As in previous elections, a limited number of local parties are considering how best to provide that challenge in their constituencies.
