Are we going to have a Lib Dem MP next door?

Stephen Robinson

Stephen Robinson has been chosen as the Lib Dems prospective parliamentary candidate for the new Chelmsford Constituency.

Local Lib Dem members overwhelmingly backed Mr Robinson, from a field of five strong candidates.

The Chelmsford seat is a new constituency – and a very marginal one. On paper , the Tories are slight favourites to win – but there’s not much difference between the predicted Conservative vote and the predicted Lib Dem vote.

So the next election could be very exciting….
