Nick Clegg supports Yeovil parliamentary candidate Adam Dance

NICK Clegg, former deputy prime minister, has endorsed the Yeovil Lib Dem candidate.

Adam Dance, a Somerset Councillor standing to be the town’s new MP at the next general election, launched his parliamentary campaign on Friday, March 8.

Mr Clegg, who currently serves as president for global affairs at Facebook parent company, Meta, spoke about the importance of restoring respectful and honourable behaviour in government.

He also emphasised the role liberal values have in approaching current issues.

Also in attendance was David Laws, who represented the Somerset town at Westminster between 2001 and 2015, succeeding Lib Dem leader, Paddy Ashdown.

Mr Laws noted the legacy of Mr Ashdown and his hope many West Country seats will return to the Lib Dems in the upcoming general poll.

Mr Dance said: “I was overwhelmed by the support from all those who attended, in particular from Jane Ashdown, Paddy’s wife, and from both Nick and David.

“Giving me their endorsement means a great deal to me personally and helps enthuse the whole Yeovil team to reach out to voters so that we can return the Yeovil constituency to the Liberal Democrats.

“We need a local voice in parliament which delivers for local businesses and for local people.”
