Labour Lose Salford Council Seat to Tories

Jeremy Corbyn is very keen for us to report on council by-election results, so… Labour have lost Kersal in Salford to the Tories. It was a Labour seat for decades and has gone blue despite Rebecca Long-Bailey’s best efforts to get out the vote yesterday. Results via Britain Elects:

CON: 42.0%

LAB: 27.3%

IND: 17.5%

UKIP: 9.0%

GRN: 2.4%

LDEM: 1.9%

34%-41% of Kersal residents are Jewish, those on the ground are already saying anti-Semitism was a factor. Shocker for Labour…

I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
