    Veteran Southport journalist Martin Hovden writes: The Green Party will not fight the Southport constituency in next month's general election.




    They will urge their supporters to vote for Liberal Democrat John Wright (pictured), as part of a Pro-Remain pact, organised by Unite To Remain.


    The Lib Dems, the Green Party and Plaid Cymru said they are giving voters just one “Remain choice” in 60 seats across England and Wales – and Southport is on the list.


    Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson explained: “It is only possible to build a brighter future if we are prepared to work alongside others.”


    The Green Party's Laurence Rankin won 1,230 votes (2.8% of the vote) in the 2015 general election in Southport. The Greens did not stand in the resort in the 2017 election.


    Conservative Damien Moore currently has a 2,900 majority over Labour, who pushed the Libs Dems into third place in the 2017 election.


    These are the 2017 results in Southport:
    CONSERVATIVE 18,541 (38.66%)
    LABOUR 15,627 (32.59%)
    LIBERAL DEMOCRAT 12,661 (26.40%)
    UKIP 1,127 (2.35%)


    Until then, Southport was seen as a two-horse race between the Tories and Lib Dems.


    Now with the increasing support in recent years for Labour's Liz Savage it has become a three-horse race.


    And when voters go to the polls on December 12, they will also have a stark Brexit choice between Pro-Leave and Pro-Remain.


    PRO-LEAVE: Tories and Brexit Party


    PRO-REMAIN: Lib Dems, Green Party


    LABOUR: Say they will negotiate a new deal with Europe and then hold another referendum.


    The question is: will the Leave and Remain candidates end up splitting their own vote, allowing Labour to secure the seat?


    The race to win Southport just got a lot more interesting.

    Has anyone in authority from the EU said that they would definitely agree to extending Article 50 after Jan.31st, never mind agreeing to negotiate a new deal with the Labour party?

    Just interested.

    I think it will help Labour more.

    Let's hope that the Lib Dems are not the first choice for Southport like southport is not the first choice for John Wright as little as 2 years ago in South Ribble:

    He says nothing would make him prouder than to serve the constituency he calls home
    https://www.lep.co.uk/your-lancashir...oads-1-8561322

    It's very odd that the Libs given "being local" was so important in previous elections they have chosen to field John Wright from South Ribble in Southport and Jo Barton from Southport in South Ribble, not sure which area should be more concerned however historically South Ribble has been used as a practice go for Southport.

    However overall no one can really want a Tory B-Team may as well go for Labour or the Actual Tories.

    I am surprised that the Greens partnered with a party that wastes so many trees with the vast amount of junk mail pushed through doors.

    That’s because all parties do not practice what they preach.
