Gordon re-elected for sixth successive time as MP for Blackpool South

Gordon has been re-elected as the Member of Parliament for Blackpool South for a sixth successive time.

He won with a majority of 2,523 and said he was "proud" to be given the trust of voters again in the town.Election_Count.JPG

He said: "I am very privileged to have a great campaign team. The Conservatives poured huge amounts of money into the seat to try and take it, but the work my team have done, particularly the casework helping people with benefit issues has shown what we do for this constituency. Also, my work as a shadow minister has been a very important part of the process.

"It has been a very tiring and gruelling campaign for everyone, and a sad campaign also under the shadow of the terrible terrorist attacks."

Gordon added his success showed up the "deep failure" of the Conservatives and Theresa May "to try and run a one issue Brexit election".

He said: "The flaws in her campaign and her governing party, whatever the outcome in terms of seats, have been very severely exposed. And it is a tribute to the positive campaign we have put forward nationally for renewal and the questions we have raised, including locally, to bring the Tory government to account."
