    Responding to the news that Nigel Farage's Brexit Party will not be standing a candidate in Brentwood and Ongar, Liberal Democrat candidate David Kendall said:

    "Nigel Farage's comments show he is running scared of the Liberal Democrats as the strongest Remain party in areas like Brentwood and Ongar. He knows that we are the only party at this election that can take seats like this from the Conservatives and stop Brexit.

    "Boris Johnson's Conservatives and the Brexit party are now one and the same. Both want to see an extreme Brexit that will damage our local economy, public services and limit opportunities for our children and grandchildren.

    "Voters in Brentwood and Ongar have a historic opportunity at this election to elect a Liberal Democrat MP, stop Brexit and build a brighter future for our country."

    Save the Children was founded 100 years ago to fight for children trapped behind the blockade in post-war Europe. Today, we work in 120 countries including the UK, to ensure that all children have the chance to thrive. We provide life-saving support when disaster strikes, and work with governments and other partners to help ensure that children in the world's poorest countries have the support they need to survive, learn and be protected. In the UK our focus is on ensuring that children growing up in poverty get the best possible start in life.

    Now that the date for the General Election has been called I am delighted to be contesting the Brentwood & Ongar seat for the Liberal Democrats at this key moment in our country's history.

    At the Full Council meeting at County Hall on Tuesday 8th October County Councillor David Kendall asked the Leader of the Council, Cllr David Finch the following verbal question regarding Hong Kong:
    Question: Dominic Rab the Foreign Secretary recently said that Britain's support for Hong Kong and it's freedoms is unwavering.
