    Why am I a candidate?

    I'm standing for the Lib Dems in South Thanet because I believe Thanet deserves better than the two old parties can ever achieve; they are torn apart by infighting, and are more concerned with their own power, rather than the welfare of their constituents. The Labour Party has been taken hostage by left-wing extremists who don't care about helping small firms, or about the nation's security, or about encouraging our youngsters to achieve the highest standards.

    Vote for me because I'm fighting for Truth over Lies. Our Prime Minister has repeatedly lied to us and got away with it. Enough is enough!

    The biggest challenge now, in our life-time is how we as the United Kingdom navigate our way forwards to develop our future relationship with the EU.

    I am clear. I will fight to:

    REVOKE Article 50
    REMAIN in the EU
    REFORM the EU from within

    The Liberal Democrats are fighting these elections as the largest pro-European Party, campaigning hard for a People's Vote with an option to remain in the EU. We are working hard to give a voice to the millions of people who demand better than Brexit Britain.

    We are fighting these elections on a clear message: a Liberal Democrat vote is a vote to stop Brexit.

    Article: May 5, 2019

    The Liberal Democrats performed well in the recent council elections across Kent with 228 gains.

    The Lib Dems are the main party of opposition in Kent standing up for the people of Kent against the Tory party's austerity and removal of our public services.

    By Jeremy Kitt, Liberal Democrat Candidate for Thanet Villages

    Incidents of people driving down quiet country lanes at the dead of night dumping all manner of commercial and household waste are on the increase. As a candidate for the Thanet Villages Ward I am particularly concerned that we find a better way to protect the green heart of our community.

    In the last year alone there were nearly 20,000 recorded incidents of fly-tipping in Kent. In 2017, Thanet District Council spent £109,550 cleaning up after fly tippers, that's money that should have been spent on local services.

    I have written an open letter to Dr Jihad Malasi, Clinical Chair, NHS Thanet Clinical Commissioning Group asking him not to agree the proposal at the meeting of the Joint Kent & Medway CCGs on Thursday 14th February to make a final decision on the reorganization of Stroke Units in Kent, Medway, East Sussex and Bexley, based on as yet unanswered questions from the Kent County Council Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee (JHOSC). The content of the letter is below.
