With the election in Colne Valley being one of the closest fought in history it has become crucial that voters unite behind a progressive candidate who can defeat the reactionary candidates from UKIP and the Conservative Party.  

Jane East is calling on the people of Colne Valley to choose the Labour Party when they cast their vote in four days if they want a progressive voice standing up for their community.

Whilst on the doorstep, Jane East says: “This election is an opportunity to ensure that the people of Colne Valley have an MP who fights for those who have been hit the hardest in the past five years. If elected, everything I do will be about building a fairer, more equal Britain.”

By analysing data from all 650 constituencies across the United Kingdom VoteSmart has determined which progressive candidate has the potential to win each constituency. After extensive research VoteSmart has declared Jane East as the best hope for Colne Valley.

Tim Johnson, Secretary of VoteSmart, comments: “Every voter wants to choose a strong local MP who shares their values, but they need to think about the national implications of their vote. Our research has shown that by voting for Jane East the people of Colne Valley will greatly improve the chances of a progressive Government being formed.”

In conclusion, Jane East states: “I have been talking throughout this campaign about doing a different kind of politics.  For me, this is about working not only for but with the people of Colne Valley; having honest debates about the challenges we’re facing; talking with not shouting at my opponents; and not making promises I can’t keep.”
