I’m delighted to be standing as the Liberal Democrat candidate for Bermondsey and Old Southwark in the general election on 8th June.
It was an immense privilege to represent this community in Parliament for 32 years. I was proud to lead the campaign to save Guy's Hospital, to deliver the Jubilee Line extension and for genuinely affordable homes for local people.
The Liberal Democrats are the real opposition to the Tories on hard Brexit. We are fighting for the rights of EU citizens, to remain in the single market and to give the people the final say on the Brexit deal.
We need an MP who will fight for our community, not spend his time on internal Labour Party infighting. The election locally is between the Liberal Democrats and Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party. The Tories, Greens and UKIP haven't won any seats here since before the war.
I hope I can count on your support on 8th June. Please let us know if you can spare some time or donate some money to help my campaign.
Rt. Hon Sir Simon Hughes
