Local MP, Andrew Gwynne, has today (April 14) announced that he is supporting the Labour Party’s position to hold a General Election on Thursday 8 June in light of an earlier statement by the Prime Minister.
Theresa May had earlier announced she would seek the support of the House of Commons in order to obtain the necessary support of two-thirds of all MP’s needed before calling an early General Election.
Andrew Gwynne said:
“Labour welcomes the Prime Minister’s decision to give the British people the chance to vote for a government that will put the interests of the majority of the country first.
“We’ll be offering an alternative to Theresa May’s programme that has failed to rebuild the economy, delivered falling living standards and has left our schools and NHS on the brink of collapse.
“The choice is simple: political and economic chaos under the Tories, or a Labour led society that works for the best possible deal for the people of Denton and Reddish in the aftermath of our exit from the EU.
“I look forward to showing how Labour will stand up for the people of Britain – it’s time for a Labour Government to fix the problems that the Tories have created.”
