Statement by Tony Clayton, Chair of Sevenoaks Liberal Democrats
No place in Sevenoaks for violent behaviour masquerading as politics
I’m glad that Sevenoaks Town Councillors came together on Monday night, at their first meeting after the disruption on Saturday in Sevenoaks Town Centre. We agreed, across all parties, that the sort of behaviour seen on the streets has no place in our town.
Both the group which had to lie to get a place to meet here. and the group who came looking to fight them, are nothing to do with our community. Thanks to the Council officials, Stag staff and the police they were sent on their way. We don’t want them back.
Ours is an open and tolerant community – and we want to keep it united.
Chair, Sevenoaks Liberal Democrats.
