Trudy Harrison Conservative MP for Copeland


Amid a night of upset and triumph, there are fresh calls today for  Jeremy Corbyn to stand down as leader of the Labour Party as it lost Copeland to the Conservatives, but kept hold of the safe seat of Stoke Central, despite a tough challenge from UKIP leader Paul Nuttal.

Gareth Snell, the former leader of Newcastle Under Lyme Borough Council won the by-election which was triggered by the resignation of Tristum Hunt, who stood down to become the director of the Victoria and Albert Museum.

In Copeland, another traditional safe seat, the party lost it to the Conservatives, after 80 years, with Trudy Harrison scoring another historical first, the first by-election that was won by a governing party.

Speaking in Copeland, the Prime Minister, Theresa May, said that people were listening to the Conservatives, and that it was building a country that worked for everyone.

“What we’ve seen from this victory is this truly is a government that’s working for everyone and every part of the country – and that’s the message that we bring here to Copeland and we’ll take across the country.”

Speaking in Hanley, Mr Snell, said that the city, dubbed the Brexit capital of Britain, for voting with a 70% margin to leave the EU had ‘rejected the politics of fear and hate’.

This city will not allow ourselves to be defined by last year’s referendum and we will not allow ourselves to be divided by the result”

Turnout, however, was low, due to Storm Doris, with 36.7% in Stoke, and a 51.27% turnout in Copeland.

For UKIP, leader Paul Nuttal told local reporters, that they hadn’t seen anything yet, with the party’s PR department said that Mr Nuttal, who was humiliated on Radio City Talk in Liverpool over a false claim that he lost someone at Hillsbrough, was a ‘victim of a smear campaign.’  Mr Nuttal, speaking briefly to a reporter from the Stoke Sentinel said

    Wow! Almost 40 years. Looooong time for weather cycles.Despite what you may think, weather is cyclic over the short term. Long term is “cplgate”.Oceanomraihic evidence is epochal, not that I would expect you to know that. It would require doing some actual reading. I’m done with you. Go back to your comic book.
