Labour Councillors on South Gloucestershire Council are very disappointed by the results of the General Election, which now means we have a majority Conservative Government for the next 5 years, presenting a huge danger to our already fragile public services, and the lives of our constituents who rely on them.

Councillor Pat Rooney, Leader of the Labour Group said: “Our candidates and volunteers ran fantastic campaigns in the three South Gloucestershire constituencies and we thank Nicola Bowden-Jones, Rob Logan, Mhairi Threlfall and their teams for all their hard work. It is clear that:

  •  People voted on the single issue of Brexit, rather than voting on policies which would have made our country a fairer more equal society.
  • Sadly many of the people who voted for Conservatives are likely to be those most seriously harmed by a Tory Brexit.
  • Brexit will not be done on 31st January 2020, that will only be the start of the negotiations.
  • More Jobs, improved living standards, investment in public services and tackling the climate emergency will all take a back seat.
  • The Tory manifesto had little detail on investment in Local Government and Schools.
  • South Gloucestershire Labour councillors will continue to stand up for our constituents, and nationally Labour and other opposition groups will hold the Tory Government to account.”
