Analysis: Friday 13th is day Labour will never forget

The ballot boxes and tables have been put away at the Leeds Arena ready for tonight’s gig, a nostalgic night called We Love the Nineties.

Yorkshire Labour supporters might be forgiven for desperately hoping they could go back to victories like 1997.

Saying Labour did badly here doesn’t really cut it. People in parts of Rotherham and Doncaster now have a Conservative MP for the first time in their constituency’s history.

The West Yorkshire seats we talk about being an indication of the national election picture were always going to be tough. Four of them went.

But further south, three more communities kicked Labour out.

Rother Valley is made of former mining villages. It’s been Labour since 1918.

Don Valley surrounds the town where railway workers created the Labour movement.

Half of Penistone and Stocksbridge only exists because it was formed around the steelworks.

These are Labour areas. But not anymore.

This Brexit election turned things around. The view here on the Labour leadership also made the party feel less connected to its roots.

The 12 December election returned results on a Friday the 13th the party will never forget.

Doncaster Central: Labour's Rosie Winterton holds seat

Dame Rosie Winterton has been re-elected as the MP for Doncaster Central, with a significantly decreased majority.

Dame Winterton, an MP for the constituency since 1997, was one of the contenders to replace John Bercow as Speaker of the House.

The Labour MP lost out to Sir Lindsay Hoyle in that contest, but came out on top in Thursday's general election.

Dame Winterton beat Conservative Roberto Weeden-Sanz by 2,278 votes, less than half the majority at the 2017 election.

Surjit Duhre of the Brexit Party came third and Liberal Democrat Paul Horton came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 1.7 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 42,000 people, 58.2% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Three of the six candidates, Mr Horton, Leon French (The Yorkshire Party) and Frank Sheridan (Green) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Rosie Winterton elected as deputy speaker

Doncaster Reporter, BBC Radio Sheffield

The Doncaster Central MP Rosie Winterton has been elected as one of three Deputy Speakers in the House of Commons.

The job involves chairing debates in Parliament when the main Speaker John Bercow is on other business.

The position became vacant because one of the former deputy speakers, Natascha Engle from North East Derbyshire, lost her seat at the general election.

As part of their role, deputy speakers can't take part in votes and have to remain impartial.
