Monday 8 May 2017 – Time for Wansbeck to go Conservative

This is a vital election for Wansbeck.

Last week Wansbeck Conservatives had their best ever result in the Northumberland County Council. Northumberland had one of the highest swings to the Conservatives. Moreover in Wansbeck specifically, Labour had one of its worst performances ever. Their share of the vote fell from 50% in 2015 to 38% in 2017. The Conservatives shot up to 33%. Now that is close enough, but the Independents, notably in Bedlington, got over 12% of the vote, and the 3 minor parties sharing the remaining 17%. If Wansbeck wants to change its MP, now is the time!

But that was the Council Election, and we in the Conservative team can’t take anything for granted. We need to win the arguments – though given the incompetence of Labour and its leadership that is an easier task at the moment.
