The party has an anti-Brexit stance, and have said they will cancel Brexit altogether if they win an overall majority at the election.

At the last general election, in 2017, the Lib Dems came third in Nottingham East.

“I grew up in Sherwood and went to school in Arnold and now run a small business in the area.
