Midlothian North and Musselburgh

Midlothian North and Musselburgh 

Thanks to everyone that came out to help with this campaign.

We worked hard but ultimately we were unsuccessful in winning the seat back for Labour.

I really appreciate all the support that people have given me over the years as the Labour Party candidate.

As Joe Hill said “Don’t mourn, organise!”
