Welcome to the web site of David Chappell

Parliamentary Campaigner for Bury St Edmunds

Since the excellent result of the 2010 General Election for the Liberal Democrats in Bury St Edmunds David has been focussing on work, including being appointed as Senior Contract Administrator on the Kingdom Tower which, at 1018m high, is planned to be the tallest building in the world.

He is still active in supporting the Liberal Democrats, especially as 57 Lib Dem MPs have been able to implement 75% of their manifesto promises whereas over 250 Labour MPs have not had any of their manifesto policy implemented.

David took the Lib Dem vote from 6,000 to over 15,000 in Bury St Edmunds and he has continued supporting the local community when work has permitted.

David was confirmed as the Lib Dem candidate for Bury St Edmunds in 2015 on Friday 28th November with 92% of the local party vote!

    Tomorrow, my first ever vote is going to be a vote for the Liberal Democrats to stop Brexit.

    Just in case the 'Bollocks to Brexit' campaign slogan didn't make it clear enough; every vote for the Lib Dems is a vote to Stop Brexit and remain in the European Union. They're the biggest remain party and were the first to call for a People's Vote back in 2016.

    I'm proud to have been the anti-Brexit Spokesperson for a party that has been unequivocal about Brexit for three years.

    Meanwhile, like many people, my colleagues and I have attempted to decipher Corbyn's riddles and work out exactly what the Labour position is on Brexit.

    Labour, Conservatives, UKIP, or the Brexit Party: they all want Brexit.

    1. Lord Heseltine, Tory peer

    The former Deputy PM endorsed us in the Sunday Times. He immediately had the whip suspended, which as Twitter pointed out was a bit suspect:

    Throughout our history, the Liberal Democrats have lead the way on green issues. The 1979 Liberal/SDP manifesto called for a "war on waste and pollution" and highlighted "the need to reserve the natural environment for future generations."

    Forty years later, our 2019 European manifesto is no less radical. Just last week, Vince Cable announced our commitment to campaign for an EU-wide ban on fracking.

    Tim Farron, Layla Moran and Vince Cable spoke at our last rally of the EU elections in London this evening. And they were joined by a special guest - Andrew MacKinlay, former Labour MP for Thurrock.

    Read their barnstorming speeches and catch up on the action here:

    What you do in the last few hours matters massively.

    Theresa May got up and gave another Brexit speech earlier and confirmed what we already knew. She's going to put the Withdrawal Agreement Bill to Parliament - with some minor changes.

    Amongst those, she offered a vote on a People's Vote - but only if the bill passes its second reading.

    Liberal Democrats are clear. We want to stop Brexit. We won't vote for any deal that doesn't promise to give the people the final say.

  • One More MEP
    Article: May 21, 2019

    Based on recent polling, LibDems are best placed to gain an extra MEP at the expense of the Brexit party.

    If you're a remainer, give your vote to us in the East England to deprive Farage's party of a seat.

    Change UK cannot win a MEP seat based on polling in the East England and Labour do not currently have a strong Remain position

    On Friday 17th May, I visited Gibraltar with our lead South West England candidate, Caroline Voaden.

    Gibraltar's part of the South West of England constituency in the European elections. We've always had strong support there, receiving over 67% of the vote there last time around in 2014.

    We're set for a strong result - sending both Caroline Voaden and Anthony Hook, our first and second South West candidates, to the European Parliament

    Corbyn's catastrophic Brexit strategy is plodding on. Rather than acting in the interest of the country, he's working to stitch up a Brexit behind closed doors with the Tories.

    He's ducking his commitment to a People's Vote. When asked today, he wouldn't even rule out abstaining on Theresa May's Brexit deal when it goes through the Commons in June. That's voting with the Tories without having to say he did.

    There's been a clear pattern emerging in recent opinion polls. Labour is sinking lower and lower - and the Lib Dems are on the up:
