  1. Excellent choice. Both candidates were well suited to be an MP and its a pity one had to lose by such a small margin. Good luck for the future Sarah – you’ll have a successful career in Labour, but let’s all get behind Chris Webb and get rid of this nasty, divisive, populist bile in Blackpool which Scott Benton gushes. He’s a disgrace to the Tory party and politics in general.

  2. Labour needs it’s moment.
    That moment is NOW.
    Let’s face it, no matter what your party allegiance is, Labour can’t cock it up… The Tories have already done that.
    Over and over and over again.
    When you’ve hit rock bottom.
    The only way is up….
