A message from Sean:

“I am obviously disappointed not to win, but this was still a very good result for us. 8,000 more votes, our highest vote share since 2001 and Victoria Prentis’ majority cut by 5,000.

Nationally we didn’t win a majority to form a government and so this cannot be considered a victory. But what we have seen is an utter rejection of Theresa May and the Conservatives. This is particularly obvious among young people who were clearly motivated by Brexit and inspired by Jeremy Corbyn to vote in numbers that have not been seen before.

I am grateful to everyone who helped in my campaign and for all the wonderful messages of support I have received.”
