North West election results: who are our new MPs?

Say farewell to the Tories and good morning to Labour, with Keir Starmer’s party swiping nearly all of the North West seats the Conservatives won in 2019.

There were a few notable losses and gains for this election. Workers Party of Britain’s George Galloway was booted from Rochdale by Labour 92 days after his by-election victory.

Liberal Democrat Tom Morrison took over Cheadle from the Conservatives. Labour lost its seat in Blackburn to independent Adnan Hussain because of its stance on Gaza.

In one for the history books, Altrincham and Sale West flipped red after decades of Conservative dominance.

The North West now has 65 Labour MPs, the Conservatives and Lib Dems have three each, and there is one independent MP. Chorley’s Lindsay Hoyle, who is Speaker of the House, is the 73rd North West MP.

Imagine being a Tatton resident and genuinely thinking McVey was the best choice. Mind boggling

By CMW

Brilliant victory for Labour Party after 14 years of Tory mismanagement of country now Labour will have task of rebuilding the economy & public confidence

By REP

McVey is excellent

By Anonymous

Tatton Tory voters want things to stay as they are for themselves; even though the Tories are no longer conservatives, but Marketists whose ideology destroys communities. Still, gated “communities” will protect them, for a while.

Re Merseyside, Labour achieving all that success without Kier Starmer setting foot in Liverpool City Region once in the whole 6 weeks of campaigning, kind of sends a message of being taken for granted.
