11. sounds familiar.

i can certainly attest to Labours lacklustre campaign in both Worcester and Wyre Forest...

candidates who had no 'footprint' in the constituancies, leaflets that didn't name the candidates or mention the name of the constituancies, leaflets that were national party leaflets and just rammed full of negative stuff with nothing whatsoever about issues within the constituancies. no door knocking, no phone canvassing...

for example - there are enormous issues within the A&E system in Worcestershire, the 'new' hospital in Worcester is too small, all the A&E consultants in the Redditch hospital resigned and went to Birmingham, and all thats just for starters - but the Labour leaflets didn't mention any of that.

both of those seats were kind of marginal, certainly both have been swing seats in the last decade, but looked very much like Labour had no interest in them - so they lost.
