“I believe that it’s only the Conservatives who can realise the benefits of Brexit and get our country back on the road to a brighter future.

“All the other parties can offer—including the Liberal Democrats—is more delay and confusion.

“Trying to ignore the referendum and cancel Brexit will just mean we keep on arguing whilst other important issues at home–like the NHS, agriculture, schools and police–don’t get the attention they deserve.”

The selection was held following Antoinette Sandbach de-selection and subsequent defection to the Liberal Democrats.

Mr Timpson will take on Ms Sandbach as well as Labour candidate Terry Savage, Nicholas Goulding of the Brexit Party and a Green Party candidate who is yet to be confirmed.


  1. Carpetbagger.

  2. Fantastic news ! Superb choice. Now we have a champion to stand alongside Boris. Great for local politics and great news to get it done !

    • The misleading phrase, Get Brexit Done, avoids political discussion of what doing Brexit might mean. Even if we leave on 31 January, this is the beginning not the end. We will have years of difficult negotiations ahead. If you believed a fantasy on the side of a bus, please don’t fall for this one too.

  3. Somewhere else for Him to fail and did’nt even dare have a second attempt at Crewe and Nantwich against Laura Smith.
