Keith Angus is the Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate for Islington North.
An Islington resident for many years, Keith has been an activist working across the community. As a Governor at Highbury Fields School for the past ten years, Keith is dedicated to supporting the school and its academic standards. Over the years he’s actively campaigned on a number of issues, from local housing, to transport issues, to crime and anti-social behavior.
Speaking after his selection as candidate, Keith said, “I'm honoured and proud to be selected as Parliamentary Candidate for the Lib Dems in Islington North.
"I am a European and proud of it. The vote to leave the EU is bad for this area. 75% of local residents voted Remain and they feel let down by a Tory government that’s ignoring their wishes and a Labour opposition in total disarray. They need someone willing to fight and stand up for what they believe in. On a personal level, my partner’s an EU migrant and he’s genuinely worried about what the future holds for him and all the other EU citizens in this country. As am I.
Jeremy Corbyn may be liked by some within the Labour party, but I know from speaking to many people right here in Islington, his wider popularity continues to drop like a stone. Prime Minister-in-waiting? Seriously, no.
So it's time for the people of Islington to elect a Liberal who'll stand up for them, rather than for a socialist experiment that's doomed for failure.
My call is simple. Vote Lib Dem. Not just to send a clear message about the EU, but also in this constituency to save the centre-left of politics from Corbyn before it's too late.”
