Richard DicksonRichard has lived in the constituency for the past 25 years and has actively campaigned against a hard Brexit. He also recently organised a petition against the closure of the local NatWest branch and created ' Friends of...' groups for three local parks. In 2015 he led the collection of donated items in Kenilworth for Calais refugees and has also worked with local LibDems in Wellesbourne and Lighthorne to fight for local people against large inappropriate property developments.

Richard currently runs a national education charity, having previously worked in the financial services sector throughout the Midlands and in London. Rather than being imposed as a candidate from outside the constituency, Richard was chosen as the parliamentary candidate by local LibDem members within it.

Richard said: "whilst campaigning actively during last year' s referendum campaign, it was clear that there was a significant number of people in the constituency who supported a ' Remain' vote. Many more oppose the reckless decision of this right-wing Conservative government - in which our MP has played a key role in the courts - to pursue a ' hard Brexit' which could have disastrous consequences for many local employers.

"This Election is about Brexit and public services, and the way that our current MP has put obedience to Tory party policy and his own political ambitions ahead of the needs and wishes of his constituents. Based on the evidence from the most recent voting behaviour in the County Council elections, when the LibDems' share of the vote was considerably greater than the other non-Tory parties, everyone who wants to avoid a disastrous hard Brexit and who wants to keep funding in vital public services, such as education, health and social care, should vote for the Liberal Democrats."
