He will have to swap his famous blue hat for the yellow bib of the Liberal Democrats. After tirelessly shouting for two years his opposition to Brexit before the British Parliament, Steve Bray now wants to enter. The man whom the press nicknamed “Mr. Stop Brexit” has indeed decided to stand in the legislative elections of December 12 for the Liberal Democratic Party.
It will represent the party that wants to cancel the exit of the European Union in the constituency of Cynon Valley, in southern Wales, announced Tuesday, November 12, its leader Jo Swinson who sees in him “a passionate activist.” “He is well known among supporters of the European Union and I am sure he will bring his energy to the campaign”, she said.
King-sized hat stuck on his head, a European flag tied on his shoulders as a cape, the 59-year-old Welshman had been demonstrating in Parliament since September 2017, usually for seven hours in a row, rain or shine. sometimes equipped with an impressive megaphone. He was distributing leaflets and good words in the hope of persuading MEPs to stop the process of leaving the European Union.
