Labour leadership result

SW regional Conference Nov 2015Following the announcement of the Labour leadership election result, Bristol South MP Karin Smyth said: “Congratulations to Jeremy Corbyn on his election success.

“Jeremy is now rightly focusing Labour on the impact Brexit will have in communities up and down the land; on exposing the damage the Tories are doing to our city, our region and our country; and on ensuring that by doing so we can defeat them locally and nationally and move towards forming the next Labour government.

“The south west will be a vital battleground for Labour as we look to win the next general election. We need to win seats across the region to help overturn the Tory majority in Parliament and I look forward to working with Jeremy, with MP and councillor colleagues, and with our expanded membership to do so.”
