Conservative party chairman Patrick McLoughlin writes

Conservative party chairman Sir Patrick McLoughlin, who had been in Copeland yesterday, also found time to send out this message yesterday:


Today is an extraordinary day. Our Conservative candidate Trudy Harrison has been elected as MP for Copeland, a seat that has been held by Labour since 1935.
Trudy’s brilliant, positive campaign, focusing on protecting local jobs, securing investment and standing up for vital local services has delivered Copeland an advocate to ensure the area is no longer ignored and forgotten.
It is the first time since 1878 that there’s been a comparable government by-election gain and is an important show of support for the Prime Minister’s plan to make a success of Brexit. 
We couldn’t have done this without the support of people like you, right across the country.
Thank you for your support,

Patrick McLoughlin 
Chairman of the Conservative Party

Promoted by Alan Mabbutt on behalf of the Conservative Party, both at 4 Matthew Parker Street, London, SW1H 9HQ

Copeland - living in the 19th century.

If you judge what century a constituency is living in by the party of the MP they elect, it would appear that for the moment Copeland is living in the same century as the majority of the country.
