LETTER: No such thing as a safe seat anymore

A ballot box.
A ballot box.

I agree with John Heath that the next Labour candidate for the Mansfield Parliamentary seat will need to be young AND local if they are to stand any chance of winning Mansfield back.

But must correct him, as he stated that Concannon was a local, he wasn’t, neither was Meale, both dropped into safe seats, no such a thing as a safe seat now, thank goodness.

A political party must work hard to earn votes, not assume, then Mansfield might just benefit.
