Local campaigner Jon Nicholas will challenge Conor Burns in the next general election.
Jon first moved to Bournemouth over 30 years ago, and since then his work has taken him all over the world. He is now living in Bournemouth with his family and works in conflict resolution and development projects focused on reducing extremism, visiting communities across the UK.
This weekend (27th - 29th September) Bournemouth Liberal Democrats will be finalising the selection of our two parliamentary candidates for the general election which can now only be weeks away.

We will be announcing our succesful candidates as soon as their selection and approval has been confirmed.
Tories don't understand the urgency of the school funding crisis.
Responding to this evening’s announcement on schools funding by Boris Johnson, Liberal Democrat Shadow Education Secretary Layla Moran MP said:

Responding to Boris Johnson’s announcement that he will ask the Migration Advisory Committee to review “an Australian-style points based system” for immigration, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs Spokesperson Ed Davey said:
