WARRINGTON 4 Brexit Group leader and co-founder Sally Bate has been chosen to stand as a candidate for the Brexit Party as nine political parties and two independents contest the North West region in the EU Parliamentary elections, due to take place on May 23.
Sally from Stockton Heath has been at the forefront of campaigning by Warrington 4 Brexit to ensure the 2016 Referendum result to leave the EU is upheld since the local action group was formed recently.
Warrington-born Sally, who grew up in Orford, is a former business owner and managed her own recruitment company, Ace Recruitment (Warrington) Ltd, with offices in both Warrington and Wigan.
Sally said: “ It’s a great honour for me to be a candidate for the Brexit Party and I’m proud to stand in my home region of the North West. I’m a patriot and fervently believe that the UK can stand on its two feet as a democratic, self-governing nation outside the EU. Attempts to sabotage the Referendum result mean that democracy in this country is now under threat and we in the Brexit Party are leading the fight back. At our rallies in Warrington we hear ordinary people telling us every week that they feel betrayed by those elected to represent them and that democracy is being trashed and their votes don’t count”.
The Brexit Party, which was formed just a fortnight ago by Nigel Farage, has enjoyed a surge in opinion polls. Farage says that the party was created not simply for people to express their anger about Brexit but to also change UK politics for good in the long term.
The full list of candidates for the forthcoming European Parliamentary Elections has been published today (Thurs 25 April.)
As reported earlier this week, former Labour Borough Cllr. Dan Price has been selected to represent the new Change UK party.
Nine political parties and two individual candidates will contest the elections on Thursday 23 May to elect the North West of England’s eight Members of the European Parliament (MEPs).
