Richard Ashworth to head list for Change UK party in South East England

by Robin Baker

Richard Ashworth, who spoke at the BEMF dinner on 23rd November, announced that he had joined The Independent Group, now Change UK, on 16 April.  Julie Girling, another former Conservative MEP, is also standing for Change UK.  Both these MEPs remain members of the European People's Party group in the European Parliament.
As head of the Party’s list in a constituency where the remain vote was strong, it is very probably that he will be re-elected.  I can still vote in the UK until end November, and so will be delighted to be able to vote for Richard.
