Nick Palmer was Broxtowe’s member of Parliament from 1997 until 2010, when he lost his seat to Anna Soubry. Nick reminds us, “Broxtowe is one of around 50 seats in Britain where the decision will make a difference.”
Nick is taking leave from his work as Head of the UK arm of the animal welfare charity to work full time on Greg’s campaign. Nick said, “I just feel he’s my sort of MP (constructive and left-wing in a sensible way), with more local roots than I ever had – but also I think we have to prevent a Tory landslide, as it’s really unpredictable what they would do our society if they got it. As always there are alternatives, but it’s fairly clear that it will come down to yet another Conservative/Labour nail-biter. The fact that the Conservative candidate is entirely new to the constituency while Greg has lived in it all his life is also something to consider.”
