The East Midlands political map now looks very different to the way it did when Labour were last in government in 2010.
It’s now a region where Labour seats are confined to the cities and everywhere else is Conservative.
Since 2010 Labour has lost every town they represented in Parliament with the exception of Chesterfield. Those seats in the former industrial areas, dubbed the red wall, have actually been collapsing since 2010.
Seats like North West Leicestershire, Sherwood and Amber Valley have now built substantial safe majorities for the Tories.
And Mansfield, which narrowly went blue for the first time in the 2017 election now has a majority of 16,000. Mansfield is a safe Conservative seat. Let that sink in. Bolsover, Bassetlaw and Ashfield are now Conservative seats.
