About Gordon

Gordon has been at the heart of Blackpool issues and campaigns for over 23 years – ever since being selected as Parliamentary candidate and has an office and home in South Shore.Gordon_-_Grand_Theatre.jpg

He was born and brought up in the North West and educated at Stockport Grammar School. He was the Editor of History Today magazine, which he ran as a small business for 12 years, and an Open University tutor.

Gordon serves in the Opposition Front Bench Team as Shadow Minister for Higher & Further Education and Skills, along with being chairman of Parliament's all-party group for Veterans. He’s campaigned ceaselessly in Parliament to highlight the particular needs and priorities of Blackpool and other seaside towns.

Gordon spends his time in Parliament lobbying for Blackpool and taking issues on behalf of his constituents. In the 21 years he has been the MP, he has a proven track record in helping to bring major regeneration to the town, the new tramway and the Cardiac Centre as well as the funding package which brought the renewed Tower and Winter Gardens.

When Parliament isn’t sitting Gordon visits local community groups and events in Blackpool and is working hard alongside Labour-run Blackpool Council on behalf of residents in the town.

How long are you going to vote against the wishes of your constituents? Party before voters seems to be how you operate ! If you cant vote the same as your constituents you shouldnt be representing them, Maybe someone else should be in your position , Think carefully when casting your next vote in regards to brexit. We are watching you. And you can and will be replaced !
