PHILIP Glanville, Mayor of Hackney, commenting on the Euro Election results, said:

“Hackney has clearly wholeheartedly rejected both this out of touch, leaderless Tory Government – and their plans for a hard or ‘no deal’ Brexit. I can’t recall a time when the Tories or a national party of Government got less than 5% of the vote in the borough.

“Hackney Labour and other remain supporting parties won this election. Labour in Hackney ran a positive campaign, with activists knocking on thousands of doors all across the borough. Here in Hackney we will continue to stand on our record and deliver for local residents who want action on climate change, the housing crisis and crime, whilst protecting frontline services.

“While the country is clearly divided, nationally we are the only party attempting to bridge that divide; and locally we continue to represent and listen to the vast majority of Hackney residents that, like Hackney Labour, are overwhelmingly and proudly pro-European and want to remain in the EU. We will continue to stand up for our communities against austerity, this Tory Government and Brexit.”
