Labour has held on to the seat of Denton and Reddish for another election, one of few spots in the Red Wall that has stayed intact in an election of decimation for Labour.
Denton and Reddish has traditionally been staunchly Labour, with Andrew Gwynne steering the ship since 2005. He has also served in the Shadow Cabinet under various guises: most recently, as Shadow Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. MM’s Anna Staufenberg caught up with him just ahead of the most important General Election in years…
Denton and Reddish was established as a constituency in 1983 and has always been a Labour stronghold. Andrew Gwynne took over as its Labour MP in 2005, winning a 63.5% majority once again the the 2017 General Election.
The MP for Denton and Reddish has publicly poked fun at Theresa May for her recent deal with the DUP.
Running Labour’s general election campaign is both ‘exhilarating and shattering’ according to campaign chair Andrew Gwynne.
