Robert O'Riordan formally adopted as candidate for December General Election
By Robert O'Riordan
At a well-attended meeting in Haddington, Robert O'Riordan was formally adopted as the Liberal Democrat's candidate for the December General Election.
Robert said: "We have been preparing for this election for some time and are determined to put up a good fight - our message is strong - Lib Dems want the UK to stay in Europe and we also want the Scotland to stay in the UK. This resonates with voters throughout East Lothian. Voters are fed up with divisive politics and want governments at Westminster and Holyrood to get back to their proper job - tackling urgent and pressing environmental, social and economic challenges. Parties need to work with each other and not against each other to achieve this. Mending our broken politics including constitutional reform and the introduction of PR at Westminster are top of my shopping list."
