PC12 - Election Result
#21
Labour did not win this election, the Conservatives lost it - the onus on us now is to reaffirm the principles of our party on Brexit, which reflect the democratically expressed will of the British people at the European Union referendum in June 2016 - principles which stand in total contrast to the Labour Party's Great British Betrayal on Brexit. We lost ground on the economy, voters saw a confused message which did not cut through, we need to be absolutely clear that a dynamic, innovative economy for the 2020s is possible, but only because of the decisions the Conservatives made since we entered Government in 2010 can we now take advantage of sunnier economic forecasts to fix the roof whilst the sun is shining and give the British economy the turbo-injection it needs to grow.

The Conservative Party can try and spin their way out of the result, but the facts are clear: the last time the Conservative Party did this poorly was nearly fifteen years ago. It was only because of a deal with the Brexit Party that they held on to as many seats as the did. Even then, their share of the vote was down in nearly every corner of England. Compare this with Labour, which won the popular vote decisively in England and across the United Kingdom as a whole - and that was without any vote splitting agreements. They may be thrilled by their number of seats, but the popular vote tells the story of this election: the United Kingdom thoroughly rejected the Conservative Party.

The notion that Labour did not win this election is a farce. After gaining ground for the past year, the Conservative Party is absolutely gutted that not only did Labour overtake them, but we did so decisively. And we did so because, long after the financial crisis ended, long after Dave Cameron's double dip recession, the Conservatives kept the United Kingdom locked into austerity. The Shadow Budget they published right before the election was proof that they never left austerity behind as they continued austerity budgets across our public services that would have kept them starved and gasping for investment. And Labour proposed a sensible roadmap out of the mess that Conservatives created: a mess that decimated our public services, a mess that squeezed living standards for a decade, a mess that left Britain the most unequal economy in Europe. That is why Labour won the popular vote decisively. And now Labour will continue to deliver in government.

Labour would have you believe that this election has resolved the issues that the last Parliament faced. Labour may have more seats than they did, but this election has not solved anything. We still have a coalition that by itself cannot lead a majority government. That coalition still has to rely on numerous other parties supporting them. This election has done many things. It has been an eye-opener for the Conservative Party as we need to look at the various reasons why we have lost so many seats. It has proven, through the increased support of the Brexit Party that there are parts of our nation that will not settle for a People's Vote. As I said, it has done many things - but it hasn't offered stability.

We have heard all about how great mighty Labour “won the election” despite losing seats and votes to us in their Northern heartlands. Labour needs to reflect significantly on that Andy frankly I have not seen much of that, so far it’s all about gloating. Labour is perfectly content abandoning hard working people of north that has stood by them thick and thin in pursuit of overturning Brexit and brexit party is the new home of millions of hard working people in the North and will continues expand and reach out to even more of these people. We will never ever abandon you like Labour did.

Maybe the former Shadow Health Secretary should check the results again. The only two parties that increased their share of the vote in this election are now in government: Labour and the Liberal Democrats. It is absolutely, abundantly clear that a majority of the British people voted for this government. And a significant plurality - more voters than the Conservatives have won in over twenty-five years - backed Labour. They can spin until the room is turning, but the votes were counted and the numbers aren't moving: Labour won this election.

Labour won the election with 290 seats, that's right they want to claim victory having fallen short of a majority by 35 seats and now having to be propped up by 5 or 6 other parties. It's just fanciful thinking really

The Prime Minister says the election result thoroughly rejected the Conservative Party. What she hasn’t told you is that the election result rejected her leadership as Labour leader; if the British public completely trusted Caroline Blakesley they would have elected a Labour Majority Government. The British public are clearly losing faith, Brexit must be resolved and we have to move onto domestic issues that the people of this country are affected by. The Conservatives over the coming weeks will be setting out our agenda to deliver for the people.

Brigette can claim to be the home of millions of voters in the North, but that's a bold claim for a party that didn't win even 700,000 votes in the North. Meanwhile, across the North, Labour's share of the vote increased. Voters across the North came home to Labour and we will deliver for them. Of course, there were some seats that we lost - we will demonstrate to those voters our commitment to improving their lives no matter whom they voted for.

The British people were clear: they voted for the Labour Party in droves. First past the post and an electoral alliance with the Brexit Party is all that saved countless Conservative MPs across the country. But while they try to talk this election into a loss for Labour, we're getting on with governing. That's the job.
