I would like to thank everyone who voted Labour in the General Election on Thursday 7 May for their support. I am aware that many people loaned me their support in a bid to oust the Tories from government.

My biggest regret is that in failing to elect a Labour MP for High Peak and a Labour government this country faces a very bleak future - especially those who live in our more disadvantaged communities.  Now, more than ever, it is time to stand up and to be counted.

We all have a role to play in holding High Peak’s MP and his government to account for their actions from extending the Bedroom Tax to  abolishing the Human Rights Act and repealing the hunting ban; but perhaps most importantly over its funding of the NHS.

I look forward to working with others to do just that.

Yours sincerely,

Caitlin Bisknell

Labour’s parliamentary candidate for High Peak.

THANK YOU!

Research published by VoteSmart has shown that Caitlin Bisknell of the Labour Party has become the only left of centre candidate who can win in High Peak.

With the election in High Peak 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.  

Caitlin Bisknell is calling on the people of High Peak to choose the Labour Party when they cast their vote in two days if they want a progressive voice standing up for their community.

Whilst on the doorstep, Caitlin Bisknell says: “This election is an opportunity to ensure that the people of High Peak have an MP who fights those who have been hit the hardest in the past five years. If elected I will fight tooth and nail for those who elected me.”

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 Caitlin Bisknell as the best hope for High Peak.

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 Caitlin Bisknell the people of High Peak will greatly improve the chances of a progressive Government being formed.”

In conclusion, Caitlin Bisknell states: “Every day on the doorstep I hear from people who have been badly affected by Tory government policy from the Bedroom Tax to lengthening GP waiting times. We need to see an end to the hurt and hardship caused by the Tory government and supported by the former Tory MP or High Peak.”

Caitlin Bisknell said:

“The Bedroom Tax will cost people up to £3,500 in High Peak if the Tories win again. At the moment, 371 are paying, but at many more will be caught if the Tories win again. Labour has pledged to abolish the Bedroom Tax and only a Labour government will do this.

Helen Goodman, Shadow Minister for Welfare Reform, said:

“The government has imposed the Bedroom Tax on families who are already hard pressed to make ends meet. There aren’t enough smaller properties for people to move so even the government’s own studies show that people have to cut back on household essentials to pay it. Only a Labour government will abolish the Bedroom Tax.”
