Campaigning in the Oldham West & Royton By-Election

On Monday and Tuesday last week I spent some time campaign in Oldham West. + Royton, helping our very impressive candidate James Daly. James is doing a good job making a positive case for the local area in the snap by election following the sad death of Michael Meacher.

The seat has a massive 15,000 Labour majority. Labour won a whopping 54% of the vote at the last general election and the area has a Labour controlled council. It should be an easy hold for them. And yet ... there is no appetite for Jeremy Corbyn's North London based, hard left, Labour Party.

Corbyn is being kept away from Oldham and after speaking to local voters I can see why...
