It’s a two-way contest in Scarborough and Whitby. The Labour candidate, Hugo Fearnley, is the one realistic challenger to the Tory MP Robert Goodwill, and Labour is in it to win it.
The 2015 Conservative majority of 6,200 was slashed to 3,435 in 2017. In this coming election, with a Labour candidate who’s a prominent local environmental campaigner, the Green Party has stepped aside and won’t be fielding a candidate. Greens polled 915 last time. The Lib Dems have little local base, with 1,354 votes in 2017, and are not in a position to challenge.
‘So any Scarborough and Whitby elector looking to oust the Tories needs to vote Labour’, says Hugo. ‘This time, in a marginal seat where Labour’s campaigning hard to win, your vote has national consequences. Make sure you’re registered to vote, and make sure to vote Labour.’
UPDATE: Best for Britain (not aligned to any party) which is campaigning for a democratic way to stop Brexit, recommends electors in Scarborough and Whitby vote for the Labour candidate.
