We have created an event page on Facebook which you can find by clicking Broxtowe General Election Hustings 2019.


  1. Tactical to concentrate the Remain vote. Where does Greg Marshall stand on Brexit? In or out or another referendum?


  2. Labours policy is to negotiate a new Deal with the EU. If successful say in 3/6 months time after being elected to put to a special Labour Party Conference for approval or otherwise. If agreed the Deal would then be put to the nation in a 3/6 month referendum campaign, the conference deciding wether the Party should campaign to Remain or support the Brexit Deal negotiated.
    Hope I’ve gotten that correct, quite sure Labour Party canvassers will be able to explain more fully on the doorstep

    Better still elect a majority Conservative Government pass Boris’s deal and ‘Get Brexit done’ so honouring the wishes of the People’s Vote to leave the E U in 2016. Labour continue to offer more ‘Dither and Delay’


    1. “Get Brexit done” is just another of Johnson’s lies. As Churchill said, “This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it may be the end of the beginning”. New trade negotiations after our withdrawal from the EU will take years and the outcome is far from guaranteed. Indeed, it may be much worse than the present ones within the EU.


  3. It took me a while to figure it out – why are the candidates listed in this order? It’s not alphabetical by either Party or surname. Rather it seems that the order is alphabetical based on the candidates’ first names. Of course since Donna wrote this, the Brexit candidate is now Calvin Robinson – who would have been second in the rankings.

    There is still time for the list to grow longer. However Broxowe BC held its briefing for potential candidates and their agents on 5 November ( – a most fitting date if I may say so.

    And anyone who is eligible but has yet to register to vote can do so at:


  4. So the Broxtowe Lib-Dem candidate has stood down in the hope that their voters will vote for Anna Soubry.

    This means that they expect traditionally centre-left voters to become centre-right voters. This disenfranchises voters who would not naturally vote for Ms Soubry. Should Ms Soubry get elected, what policies, outside of Brexit would she pursue – Centre Left or Centre Right? I need to know before I consider voting for her.

    Then how can Jo Swinson proclaim herself as being a prime minister in waiting when her party are pulling out of constituencies? Not exactly the way to become the party of government. Surely you need every seat that is available.

    It’s interesting that the Lib-Dems in Broxtowe are remaining silent, They tdo end to go into their shell when they are being scrutinised.


    1. Oh dear. We were asked to stand down as part of the Remain Alliance with the Greens, Change UK and Plaid Cymru. Labour are actually standing against Caroline Lucas. Tribalism is killing our democracy.

      It’s called cooperation which is sadly missing in politics. Happy to be scrutinised because sometimes you have to do the right thing!
