Beyond the Brexit Divide - Greens reach out to split communities


  • Popular Councillor and Cabinet Member on Lewes District Council, Johnny Denis, Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Lewes “disappointed” that Lewes was not included as part of national discussions covered by the Unite to Remain electoral arrangements.

  • Greens to fight a campaign in areas divided by Brexit

Johnny Denis, Green Party Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Lewes welcomes the news that talks nationally between his party and the Liberal Democrats have led to some candidates standing down to allow the best-placed candidate to win, but is disappointed that Lewes was never on the list for discussion.

“Clearly our Liberal Democrat colleagues are confident that they can win this seat. I welcome the news of co-operation between parties elsewhere and it is disappointing that Lewes is not one of those seats, as we stood down for the Lib Dems at the last snap election in 2017. I am not deterred from taking on our hard-Brexit supporting MP”.

“I enjoy working with my Lib Dem colleagues on Lewes District Council and we have an important job to do in running the council as a Co-operative Alliance.” 

“I will be standing in this General Election and my focus will be on talking to voters where the Brexit divide has hit hardest. I have been talking to people this weekend who want our next MP to focus on what matters to our local community, and who want an alternative to Johnson and his shambolic government”.
