The Brexit Party has announced its first 150 MP candidates for the next general election, including five for Lincoln and Lincolnshire.
While Lincoln, Sleaford & North Hykeham, Grantham & Stamford and Scunthorpe all have Brexit Party candidates, notably Boston & Skegness have no representatives yet, despite it being the UK’s area with the strongest majority to leave the EU.
She was announced as the candidate for Grantham and Stamford on Monday, August 5.
Nigel Farage, Leader of the Brexit Party, said last week: “With Boris Johnson already watering down Brexit and looking to bounce the country into an early general election, trust is now the key issue in British politics.
“Our great candidates will not stand for Mrs May’s treaty being repackaged, it is still the worst deal in history and a betrayal of Leave voters.
“That’s why we are ready to fight in every seat to secure the Brexit that 17.4 million voted for.”
