Labour's parliamentary candidate at last week's General Election, Liz Savage has thanked Southport residents who voted for her and looked to a probable Labour victory in the town in 2020.
"Thanks to everyone who supported me last week. We managed to double our vote and that puts us in contention for the next election when Labour can win here. In terms of swing required to win, Southport is now target seat number 61 for Labour at the next election. We knew from our extensive canvassing that people were rejecting the Lib Dems in large numbers and that the majority of their supporters would prefer a Labour government."
