At a meeting at St Mary’s Stadium tonight, Southampton Labour Party officially adopted long-standing MPs John Denham and Alan Whitehead as their Parliamentary candidates for Southampton Itchen and Southampton Test respectively.
Mr Denham said:
“Our campaign in Southampton has been well under-way for many months now, but has stepped up a gear since the Prime Minister called the election last week.
“With the polls narrowing it’s clear that people are beginning to take a long hard look at the Tories, so we’ll be fighting hard to make sure Southampton stays Labour.”
Dr Whitehead said:
“There’s a real choice at this election: investing in schools and housing and green jobs with Labour, or Tory tax cuts for the rich that would kill the economic recovery. Unlike the Tories, we won’t take a single voter for granted. We’ll fight hard every day- not just for Labour, but for a fairer future for everyone in Southampton.”
