Crewe and Nantwich

The result was terrible, with the members and staff who gave their all and the candidate deserved better for their efforts.

It was a weird sensation because I've been there at some appalling by - elections - Greenwich, Bermondsey, Croyden NW and the response from the Labour voters was much more positive in Crewe - yet the result was the same!

We are going through a very difficult period and while we have to keep our nerve and discipline, we genuinely do have to learn lessons from the result (and the local elections) thanks to all the members from all over the country, the staff and the MP's and MEP's, who came to help.

I know it was much appreciated in Crewe and nantwich.

Generally, I am looking forward to the election results when they say "Crewe and Nantwich - Labour gain" but there's a lot of work to do before then.
