Ex-MP to visit as Amos calls for General Election

Jeremy Browne, the former Liberal Democrat MP for Taunton Deane, will be back on his old stomping ground this weekend.

Mr Browne, who now works for an international trade body, is supporting Gideon Amos, the party’s Parliamentary candidate for Taunton and Wellington.

His two-day visit comes as Mr Amos called on the Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, to call a General Election now.

Mr Amos said: “People are desperate for a new start for the country after so many broken promises, economic chaos, and continuing turmoil.

“Instead, the Conservatives in Parliament are gripping on to the last vestiges of influence by the tips of their fingers, locking people out of the change that’s needed.

“This is presumably so those at the top can keep their summer parties at Number Ten while the people I know here in Taunton and Wellington are struggling to pay the bills.”

Meanwhile, Mr Browne is attending a fund-raising dinner on Friday night and will then join Mr Amos the following day to meet voters at Creech St Michael Village Hall from 10.30am – all welcome.

Mr Browne was MP for Taunton Deane from 2005 to 2015, during which time he was a Minister in the Coalition Government.
