Since her election just two years ago, Cat Smith has won praise from people across our city for her energetic and effective work.

The contrast with our previous Conservative MP couldn't be starker, but despite not being seen in Lancaster since losing the election, the Conservatives want to bring him back.

This seat has always been on a knife-edge - the Conservatives won it by just 333 votes in 2010, and at the 2015 election, just 700 people changing their votes could have seen them win again.

Your vote can make all the difference - but only if you use it wisely.

If you don't want to see a return to a do-nothing Conservative MP, who didn't even have an office in the constituency, vote Cat Smith on Thursday 8 June.

After losing here in 2015, the Conservative candidate moved back to London. He wasn't seen or heard of locally until this election was called.

Cat Smith lives in Lancaster, got married here and loves Lancaster. She is committed to our area not just because it's her job, but because it's her home too.

Your choice at this election: Having a Lancaster voice in Westminster, or electing a London-based politician who's only here when there's a job going.

 BE PART OF OUR CAMPAIGN

At the last election, the Conservatives threw vast amounts of money into their campaign, buying up the front page of the Lancaster Guardian. Labour's campaign is very different - talking to people on their doorsteps about the issues that matter to our community.

Many, not Few

 

 

76% of Labour voters now say we should

commit to changing our voting system to

Proportional Representation.

 

Countries which use PR are much more likely to

be the kind of social democracies

that we in the Labour Party want to create

 

This report sets out the reasons why the Labour Party must listen to the wisdom of this majority and commit to Proportional Representation in our manifesto.

First Past the Post has become indefensible

FPTP is bad for Labour and bad for democracy

The answer is Proportional Representation

PR will enable us to build a good society

The time is now

The Many, Not the Few
