The picture in Sussex: Analysis from our political reporter

Ben Weisz

Political reporter, BBC Sussex

You might think Sussex is the Tories’ to lose. They currently hold all but two of the seats here.

Will confusion over the Tories’ adult social care plans cost them in elderly Eastbourne, a top Lib Dem target? And while they’re at it, might the Lib Dems take Lewes?

Meanwhile, Labour is hoping for an upset in Brighton Kemptown where government minister Simon Kirby is sitting on a small majority.

All three Brighton & Hove seats were visited by the Prime Minister early in the campaign.

The Tories are taking those threats seriously.

Kristy Adams

Don’t think they’re not on the offensive, though. Kristy Adams’ campaign has seen several government ministers descend on Hove.

A Tory landslide could cause an upset in Brighton Pavilion too. Though that’s much less likely.

It’d be a good night for Labour if they held on to Hove and took Kemptown.

If Crawley or Hastings turned from blue to red it would be something of a political earthquake.

Possible, but unlikely.

So far Labour, the Lib Dems and Tories have announced they will stand in Crawley on the 8th June.

As the Crawley Observer reported last week, UKIP has decided not to contest Crawley at next month's General Election. UKIP's Allan Griffiths told the paper that supporting Tory Henry Smith, who campaigned to leave the EU, was the "sensible and mature course of action". 

Well, today, Henry Smith told BBC Sussex he welcomed the "support of patriots" in ensuring Brexit is a success. 

A clear majority - 58% of Crawley electors - voted to leave the EU in last June's referendum. However, we need to secure the result, which some still don't respect, for a strong and stable future.

In that on-going effort which I'm proud to be a part of, I welcome the support of all patriots in this election and beyond."

Labour, however, pointed out that Mr Smith had previously said that UKIP 'hated' Crawley
