Elections 2021: Conservatives win Hartlepool byelection, dealing blow to Labour – live

There’s something in what you’re saying here but I don’t think it’s fair to pin this result on one individual. Paul [Williams] was a good, credible candidate …

The problem runs far, far deeper than that. People don’t trust the Labour party. I’ve seen focus group holding where people were presented with a policy and they liked it, until they were told it was a Labour party policy …

What we need to do – and you might not like the answer, and think it sounds waffly, but actually I think it’s very important – we have to bring the Labour party back to Britain. All of us have to get out there and listen to voters telling us what they don’t like about the Labour party, what we’re doing wrong, but also what are their ambitions and their aspirations for themselves.
