Guy KiddeyThe Liberal Democrat surge comes to High Peak

GUY KIDDEY, 31, is the new face of the Liberal Democrats in High Peak after being nominated the party's prospective parliamentary candidate at a packed hustings in Chapel-en-le-Frith last week.

Guy, a multi-linguist with British, Spanish and Irish roots, has just moved back to Britain after an international career. He spent much of his childhood hiking and fishing in the High-Peak area. He was in Buxton this weekend to meet voters.

"So many people are flocking to the Liberal Democrats after a lifetime of voting for other parties. They know that now is not the time for blind loyalty. Now is the time for national unity and leadership. Only the Liberal Democrats can offer this, " Guy says.

The indications are clear. In High Peak, around a quarter of people who voted Labour in 2017, and nearing half of people who voted Tory in 2017, will vote Liberal Democrat in 2019.

The coming election race in High Peak will be between the Liberal Democrats and Labour.

"Quite a few Brexiteers came over to chat too. I welcome this sort of engagement. I'll listen to anyone and respond with my point of view. If we end up agreeing, great. If we agree to disagree, that's fine," Guy says.

Many people asked Guy about the issue of democracy, and about how they think the Liberal Democrats seem to be disregarding the 2016 referendum result.

"The last three years have brought chaos to this country. We want this to end. We don't think leaving the EU is good for the UK in any way, shape or form. Democracy is fighting for what you believe in. That was the case during the two world wars, and it's still the case today," Guy says.
