The Liberal Democrats chose to beat Labour’s Tulip and Kerr

The ruling party chose Scott Emery and Charlie Clinton to run in the Holborn, St Pancras, Hampstead and Highgate constituencies.

The seat of Holborn is currently held by Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer, while the current Labor MP for Hampstead and Kilburn, Tulip Siddiq, will hold the new Hampstead and Highgate seat.

Mr Scott Emery, who represents the Highgate ward, hopes to claim it for the Lib Dems.

The youngest alderman elected in Haringey in 2018, at 31, has a passion for environmental change and campaigned on single-use plastics and against the Edmonton incinerator.

He said he “enjoys competing with the Labor Party”.

He added: “After five years serving my community as a councillor, I stand as an MP to clean up politics and represent the real views of the people of Hampstead and Highgate.

“I am passionate about tackling homelessness and our desire to strengthen our relationship with Europe.”

Charlie, a law graduate from UCL and former UCL Student Union staff member, is now a marketing and technology professional working in sustainability at a multinational company, where he was a national staff representative.

“It is a great honor to stand in such a vibrant area of ​​London,” he said.

“I will work with Lib Dem councilors to give people a voice.

“People are fed up – and as the country struggles under our broken political system, I will take every opportunity to champion real change, calling for reform of the country from the top down, from the local NHS right through to Parliament.

“I will share with you a vision of a fairer, healthier, happier society fit for the 21st century.”

Baroness Sue Garden, leader of the Camden Liberal Democrats, welcomed the choices.

“Congratulations to Charlie and Scott, great Liberal Democrat candidates who will serve our communities well,” she said. I wish them every success.”
