Rayleigh & Wickford, thank you!

Last night, the people spoke. Labour achieved its biggest swing in vote share across the country since 1945. Labour was not wiped out; we grew stronger in almost every seat! Jeremy Corbyn led the Labour Party to achieve a monumental feat. The Conservatives have lost their majority in Parliament and the position of whatever government we now have looks deeply uncertain as we head towards crucial Brexit talks; the most crucial thing to happen to us in recent history.

At home in Rayleigh & Wickford, we achieved great things

  • The number of votes we received doubled to over 13,000.
  • Our vote share grew from 12.6% to 24.3%
  • We achieved the best result for Labour ever in this constituency, and before that in the old Rayleigh constituency, since 2001.

To the people of Rayleigh & Wickford: We are here. We are your opposition. We are with you. We are Labour! From Mark and the team, thank you for standing with us, from the bottom of our hearts.

    I think this now ‘puts the writing on the wall’ for the Tory administration on the District Council next year!
