Why 65,000 Sheffielders Won't Back Cameron


As nominations close and voters start to decide who they will be supporting LabourSheffield discovers that 65,000 Sheffielders won’t be backing David Cameron on 22 May.

Because they haven’t got a Conservative candidate to vote for.


The Tories are fielding 23 candidates – leaving 5 wards with no Tory representative.


Labour’s Campaign Organiser, Tony Slatcher said, ‘All agents dread having problems with the nomination process – but leaving over 15% of the electorate with no-one to support is another thing.


Either the Tories have actively given up even the pretence of representing the voters of Britain’s Northern cities – or they have been faced with a complete organisational collapse beyond their control. Neither explanation is good news for the Tories.'


Some of the seats cover areas that have had Tory councillors in the past – and two are in Nick Clegg’s Sheffield Hallam Constituency.

Great that Labour give every Sheffielder wherever they live in our City the chance to comment on our performance at the ballot box
