CONGRATULATIONS to Warrington’s new MP for Warrington South Faisal Rashid on his election victory last night, while commiserations to former MP David Mowat, who had been the sitting MP for just over seven years.
It was certainly a long night of excitement at the count which also saw veteran Labour MP Helen Jones returned for a sixth successive time, as she increased her majority in Warrington North.
The results pretty much reflected a good night for Labour and a bad night for the Tories across England, resulting in a hung parliament.
It is now more important than ever that we all work together to try and bring as much stability to the local community and the country moving forward as we enter uncharted waters with the Brexit negotiations looming on the horizon.
Whatever your political beliefs it was good to see a large turnout for the younger voters – after all it is their futures.
Social media played a big part in their engagement.
We witnessed this effect first hand at warrington-worldwide as our election coverage reached in excess of 45,000 people within a few hours of going live!
Meanwhile here at warrington-worldwide we look forward to continue working with our town’s elected representatives for the good of our town.
