Coming soon – Redaction Report’s election post-mortem of Hartlepool, Holyrood, the Senedd and the locals

THE SO-CALLED Super Thursday UK elections of May 6, 2021 were, by and large, a disaster for Labour.

The loss of Hartlepool was one that stung the most hard, as this had been a Labour seat since the 1970s – and was the latest brick in the Red Wall to fall to the Conservatives.

This defeat should present a pivotal moment for Labour to offer a coherent progressive vision, as Redaction Report argued in one of our latest editorials.

Labour also lost numerous council seats across the nation as well as suffering a net loss of two seats in the Scottish Parliament.

But in other parts of the country, the picture was a little rosier. In Wales, Labour still emerged victorious, raking in half of the Senedd’s 60 seats. The party also secured wins in the Greater Manchester and London mayorships.

Redaction Report discussed the Hartlepool by election and the North-South divide in a previous episode of our show here:

Our team will be back soon with a belated post-mortem of the bumper election season.
