Does Labour stand a chance in Hertsmere?

This is a criticism occasionally leveled at us.

One answer is that if you believe it then it will come true.

The more people who actually get out and vote Labour, the more likely, our Labour candidates are likely to win.

Wouldn't it be a change to have an MP who was born in Hertsmere and still lives there instead of a career politician who has been drafted in by the Tory heirarchy?

It would be dishonest to pretend that the Tory candidate hasn't always been a long way ahead, so let's look at the figures.

 

ELECTION OF A MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT FOR THE HERTSMERE CONSTITUENCY

DECLARATION OF RESULT OF POLL 7th May 2015

Liberal Democrat                                            2,777

Labour Party                                                 11,235

Tories                                                            29,696

UKIP                                                                6,383

 

In 1997 Labour came closest to winning

So, 2 things are clear.

Labour is consistently in 2nd place.

On a good day, Labour has a lot more votes to call on than any other party.

Vote for Fiona Smith June 10th and bring in a Labour MP for Hertsmere!
