Stand with Ross Pepper and Remain

Okay, let me write this very very carefully - what I thought was the case appears to be more the case.  Up to now we have claimed as a political campaign that Ross Pepper, the Liberal Democrat in the Sleaford and North Hykeham constituency by-election, was "the only candidate from the  political parties to have voted remain and be an opponent of Brexit."  The words were precise and carefully chosen.
