Sir Ed Davey visits Taunton

Giedon Amos and Sir Ed Davey

Sir Ed was in Vivary Park where he knocked down a series of blue dominos - a reference to the party’s campaign to overturn traditionally held Conservative seats across the south and south west.

Commenting on his latest photo-op, Liberal Democrat Leader Ed Davey said: “Thursday could be a historic moment for this country. It is an opportunity to vote for a Liberal Democrat local champion who will stand up for the NHS, tackle the sewage scandal and end the cost of living crisis. 

“Conservative MPs have taken voters for granted, ignored their concerns and become more interested in fighting amongst themselves rather than fighting for their constituents. 

“They have proven themselves utterly unfit to govern and unfit to represent the needs of those who have elected them. On July 4th, people have the chance to make sure the Conservative dominoes fall across the Blue Wall and West Country and make sure a Liberal Democrat MP can take your concerns right to the heart of Parliament.”

Gideon Amos, the party’s candidate for Taunton and Wellington, added: “I am delighted Sir Ed was able to take time out of his busy schedule to visit.

“He recognises the importance of the new Taunton and Wellington seat and the tremendous amount of work taking place to win it for the Liberal Democrats.

“Since this election was called, my team and I have knocked on more than 9,000 doors and one thing is clear - people in this constituency are ready for change.

“Local health services have been brought to their knees, people’s mortgages and rents have skyrocketed and water companies have been allowed to pump their filthy sewage into our rivers and beaches.

“All this by a Conservative government more interested in fighting between themselves than standing up for the country.

“Every vote for the Liberal Democrats at this election is a vote to elect a strong local champion who will fight every day for our NHS and care.”
