Why I’ve decided not to stand in the 2017 General Election

UKIP MEP Jill Seymour will not be putting herself forward as a candidate at the 2017 general election.

The Shropshire-based MEP, who fought The Wrekin seat in 2015, cited ‘family and personal reasons’ for the decision.

She said she would instead focus all her attention on continuing to campaign to ensure the Government delivers the Brexit which Britain voted for in the referendum last year.

Mrs Seymour said: “My belief in Brexit is unwavering, and I hope that when people go to the polls on June 8, they send a message to the many sitting MPs who voted to remain in the EU – against the wishes of the majority of their constituents.

“Britain faces a bright future outside the European Union, and we need to ensure that, going forward, we are represented by MPs who truly believe in this vision.”
