North Norfolk Liberal Democrat candidate Norman Lamb has received the backing of Queen legend Brian May, ahead of the General Election.
The guitarist is supporting Mr Lamb as the Common Decency candidate – a campaign for ‘colour blind politics’ which urges people to vote for decent candidates locally irrespective of the political party they usually support.
The guitarist said: “If you want to make a difference, and stop a very decent MP being undermined... it’s clear that you have to vote for Norman Lamb.”
He urged Labour voters to vote for Mr Lamb and encourage their Labour-supporting friends to do likewise.
Mr Lamb said: “I’ve worked hard as an MP to help local communities and give a voice to those who are disadvantaged and marginalised, such as people with mental ill health. It’s pleasing to see that work recognised.”
