|Jon Ashworth's red letter day|
Labour won, which isn't surprising. Perhaps Mr.Ashworth can now tell the voters where Labour would cut things in order to balance the books? Or is that wishful thinking.
Here's the result -
Jon Ashworth, Labour Party 19771 57.84%
Zuffar Haq, Liberal Democrats 7693 22.51%
Jane Marion Hunt, Conservative Party 5169 15.12%
Abhijit Pradip Pandya, UKIP 994 2.91%
Howling Laud Hope, Monster Raving Loony William Hill Party 553 1.62%
Labour Majority 12,078
A decisive win for Labour no doubt, but they need to propose as well as oppose.
