Anneliese Dodds – 2022 Comments on Local Elections

The comments made by Anneliese Dodds, the Chair of the Labour Party, on 5 May 2022.

We are proud of the positive campaign we have run, based on a practical plan to tackle the cost of living crisis and the crime blighting our communities. Because we believe Britain deserves better.

It’s going to be a long night and there will be ups and downs – we hold the majority of the seats up for election in England, so never expected big gains.

These results will show the progress we have made thanks to Keir’s leadership since the disastrous 2019 election result. Labour is a renewed and confident party, making headway in England, Scotland and Wales.
