Labour storms forward in Monmouth and Wales as we return to our Labour roots
Congratulations to our excellent candidate Ruth Jones and everyone who supported the Labour campaign in the Monmouth Constituency in 2017.
While we are disappointed not to have taken the seat, we won a significant reduction of around a third in the Tory majority and an increase of over 43% in the Labour vote. This reflects the strong move to Labour right across Wales and the UK.
It is clear Teresa May and her arrangement with the extreme right in Northern Ireland cannot survive. Another general election before 2022 is almost certain. What is clear is we will see an election to the Welsh Assembly Government in 2021. It is time voters in the Monmouth Constituency had a real say in Cardiff. It is time we had a Labour Assembly Member.
Monmouth Labour party and our excellent campaigning members are up for the fight.
In 2017 we won a clear swing towards Labour and we all know how a swing works – The harder you push it the higher it goes!
