Millicent, a graduate of the University of London and University of Edinburgh, says:
I'm standing for Parliament because I want to change the way politics is done. I want to engage more people in decision-making and I want to see a parliament that's more representative of the people.
Millicent is a far cry from the "career politician" we often see in Westminster. She would bring a fresh approach and real life experience to parliament. Commenting on her selection she said:
This is a critical time for people in our constituency. In a democracy the power lies with the people. That’s why I want to see a wider range of people in politics. Through building a fairer society we can build a stronger economy and provide opportunity for every single one of us.
I’m a Liberal Democrat because I believe in working together for a fairer society.
In her spare time Millicent is a keen cyclist, knitter and guerilla gardener.
