Southport Visiter - - Visiter Active -

LORD John Prescott was in town re­cently to ad­dress a South­port Labour Party cam­paign meet­ing at the Prince of Wales Ho­tel on Lord Street.

In a rous­ing speech the deputy leader of the Labour Party praised the lo­cal party’s suc­cess in re­cent elec­tions when Ja­nis Black­burne and Mhairi Doyle his­tor­i­cally won seats on Sefton Coun­cil for Kew and Nor­wood wards re­spec­tively.

John Prescott was the Labour Party can­di­date in South­port in 1966 and has fond mem­o­ries of the town. He has fol­lowed elec­tions here closely and he wel­comed the suc­cess of Liz Sav­age, the Labour Party can­di­date in the 2017 Gen­eral Elec­tion, who knocked the Lib­eral Democrats into third place as the seat was won by Con­ser­va­tive Damien Moore.
