One of the busiest Islington Lib Dem meetings for several years, successfully selected two parliamentary candidates last night. Terry Stacy and Keith Angus will stand as the Prospective Parliamentary candidates (PPC) in the two Islington constituencies in the event of snap general election.
Selected as PPC for Islington South and Finsbury, Terry Stacy spoke about his plans for the future, he said, “We need to be prepared for all eventualities. It’s so important that at the next elections we fill Parliament with parliamentarians who are unambiguously Pro-European and support the principles of tolerance and fairness for all. Only Lib Dems in Government can deliver and represent the views of all of our community”
Keith Angus was elected as PPC for Islington North, upon being elected, Keith Angus told Islington Lib Dems, “I'm honoured and proud to be selected as Parliamentary Candidate for the Lib Dems in Islington North. Islington is my home and I love it. However, it's also an area with its problems. We need to tackle chronic housing issues. We need to tackle crime, particularly hate crime which is going up in this area. We also have a job to do, to remind people across Islington they can choose a strong, Liberal alternative, ready to work hard for them in Parliament".
