A former police officer has been selected by the Liberal Democrats as their candidate for the most marginal seat in the country.
Wendy Chamberlain was chosen last night as the candidate for the UK Parliament seat of North East Fife where the SNP have a majority of two votes over the Liberal Democrats. The seat was previously held by Ming Campbell for almost three decades.
Wendy Chamberlain said:
“I am delighted to have been chosen as the Scottish Liberal Democrat candidate to win back North East Fife from the SNP at the next General Election, after the Liberal Democrats slashed the SNP's majority to just two votes last time.
“I live in Fife with my family and work as a Learning and Development Manager for Diageo. I spent twelve years working as a Police Officer.
“Now working with our local MSP Willie Rennie and former MP Ming Campbell I will fight for North East Fife and the people who live here.
“I will oppose Scottish Independence and I am determined to stop another independence referendum. I will support investment in local school, college and university education, and will fight for better health services including mental health and GP out of hours services. I will oppose a damaging hard Brexit.”
North East Fife MSP and Party Leader Willie Rennie said:
“Wendy Chamberlain will be an excellent candidate to win North East Fife from the SNP. She will be a first class MP and will speak for the pro UK, progressive majority in the constituency."
