In Bury South, Labour Voters Are Plumping For Strong And Stable Over Principled And Weak

We're in Bury South, a seat held by Labour's Ivan Lewis for twenty years. Around the table are eight local women aged between thirty and fifty. After some introductions, our moderator James Morris asks two questions. "Who did you vote for in 2015?" Each woman takes it in turn to reply. Labour. Labour. Labour. Labour. Labour. Labour. Didn't vote. Labour. "And second question, who would you vote for if the election were held tomorrow?" Conservatives. Conservatives. Conservatives. Conservatives. Conservatives. Conservatives. Conservatives. Conservatives. I settle back in my chair. This feels like a big deal.
