Oh dear. Come June 8, Labour are hoping to take the marginal seat of Blackpool North and Cleveleys from the Tories. However, the party’s local candidate Chris Webb might want to consider re-printing his campaign literature.
Mr S was curious to come across Webb’s campaign leaflet. He says that, as a local boy, he would put Blackpool and Cleveleys first. However, this claim is put into doubt by his second promise to… ‘never stop fighting my home town’:
With Webb a Remain supporter in a Leave area, perhaps he is on to something after all…
