BLUE FRIDAY: Boris WINS Landslide in Hartlepool with First Tory MP in 62 years

LABOUR was left humiliated this morning after The Conservatives won the North-East Seat of Hartlepool for 62 years. 

Conservative candidate Jill Mortimer handed Boris Johnson a major boost with a staggering majority of almost 7,000 – smashing both Tory and Labour predictions. 

Despite a crippling pandemic that has battered Britain, working-class voters stuck with Bashful Bozzer and in the key battleground of Hartlepool in North East England as Labour “conceded defeat” as the Tory party won a landslide victory in this historically Red Wall seat. 

The Leave-supporting North East constituency went blue for the first time in its 47-year-old history, as Boris Johnson demolished another brick in Labour’s so-called “red wall”.

Voters in the town backed Tory candidate Jill Mortimer to be their next MP over Labour’s Dr Paul Williams – an avid Remainer and second-referendum campaigner during his time as MP for Stockton South between 2017-19 – in a rare by-election victory for a party in power for more than a decade.

The Conservative, who declared it a “truly historic result”, secured a 6,940 majority winning 15,529 votes to Dr Williams’ 8,589.

Sources told Politicalite that Labour boss Sir Keir Starmer was set to face a “humiliating loss” and it could even cost him his job. 

Shadow transport secretary Jim McMahon, who led the Opposition party’s campaign to hold the North East town, said it looked clear that Labour had not “got over the line”.

Such a humiliating defeat in a constituency that has voted Labour for almost 50 years will be a blow to Sir Keir Starmer’s leadership, after he stressed during the race to replace Jeremy Corbyn that he was the person to turn the outfit back into a winning force again.

Mr McMahon told Sky News: “It is pretty clear in the way the ballots are landing that we are not close to winning this despite our best endeavours.

“We haven’t got over the line, that’s quite clear from the ballots.”

Ballots were cast across England, Scotland and Wales in local elections dubbed ‘Super Thursday’ in the largest test of political opinion following the Pandemic. 

Early results in council contests elsewhere also appeared to show voters deserting Labour, as ballots continue to be tallied up across England, Scotland and Wales following the Super Thursday polls – the largest test of political opinion outside a general election.

The Tories seized Redditch and Nuneaton & Bedworth councils in the Midlands from Labour, along with Harlow in Essex, while Sir Keir’s party saw heavy losses across North East local authorities.

Additional reporting by PA Media 

EMBATTLED Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer threatened to take legal action against a British news outlet on Tuesday after we exposed the parties alleged links to a renowned BBC paedophile, Politicalite can reveal. 

Last month we exclusively revealed that two of Labour’s candidates in the local elections were pictured with a man who is accused of having links to renowned BBC perv Stuart Hall. 

Predictably, Mr Starmer – who has a history of defending BBC pervs (see below) – hit back and threatened to sue Politicalite and report us to the Police; unless we removed the article from our website and from social media.

“The article makes claims against two Labour Party candidates that are categorically false and, in our view, are defamatory.” said the parties legal office. 

Labour also threatened to report us to the Police: “We should also take this opportunity to remind you that it is a criminal offence pursuant to s. 106 of the Representation of the People Act 1983 to make false statements regarding the conduct or character of a candidate during an election campaign.” said the letter.
