Candidate for Rutland and Stamford

General Election - 4 July 2024

James Moore

Local man Dr James Moore has been selected as the Liberal Democrats’ parliamentary candidate for Rutland and Stamford. Speaking at a weekend party meeting at Stamford, Dr Moore said:

“After the stunning Liberal Democrat successes in last year’s local council elections, the Liberal Democrats are now in a great position to win the parliamentary seat this time.”

“It is time for change locally and nationally. We need to rebuild confidence in Britain’s economy and tackle the cost-of-living crisis. We need to address the problems in our neglected public services, improve access to local NHS GPs and dentists, and restore local community policing.”

“I’ll be an MP that fights for our area and our rural communities. I’ll speak out against the government’s financial squeeze on our local councils which pushes up our council tax every year. I’ll fight to tackle the problems of flooding and river pollution that affect our local villages. And I’ll be a strong voice for the armed forces communities in our area. After years of government cuts, it is time we gave our full support to the people who defend our freedom.”

Dr Moore is a Lecturer in the School of History, Politics and International Relations at the University of Leicester. Educated at Christ Church, Oxford and the University of Manchester, James has written extensively on British politics, including books on the development of British democracy and modern anti-corruption legislation. He worked in the Middle East for three years, publishing several works on political developments in Egypt, and he is currently editing a book on the problems of state-building in modern Iraq. Brought up in Leicestershire, James has lived in Leicestershire and Rutland for most of his life and is currently in his second term as a district councillor. Outside of public life, James is a close follower of National Hunt racing and plays football and cricket for his local village club in Barrowden, Rutland.

“Liberal Democrats now lead two of the three district-level councils in our constituency and are joint leaders of the third. With the collapse in Conservative support, we are many people’s favourites to take the parliamentary seat this time. We pledge to work hard for everyone in our area and give our rural communities a real voice in Westminster. The Conservatives have taken our area for granted for too long,” concluded Dr Moore.
