COPELAND BY-ELECTION – 23rd February 2017
Thursday 23rd February is also the date of another Westminster by-election, in Copeland in Cumbria.
This is another Labour seat, vacated by Jamie Reid, who is leaving Parliament for a cushy job with the nuclear industry. Tristram Hunt in Stoke is similarly departing the hallowed halls of Westminster to become curator at the V & A Museum. Knowing that Labour is not likely to be back in power nationally for years and years (if ever!), these guys are like rats leaving a sinking ship.
Ukip’s candidate in Copeland is Fiona Mills, a Cumbrian member who was recently elected to the National Executive Committee (NEC).
If you can help Fiona and the campaign team in Copeland in any way, thanks and here is the link:
