Thank you to all our supporters!

On behalf of our MP, Robert Syms, and the PCA, I would like to thank all our supporters and activists around Poole who helped make the June election result possible.

Poole Conservatives had an outstanding success in this election. Robert increased his vote by about 5000 against strong Marxist-led opposition.

Nationally, we increased our percentage of the vote to over 42%, which is the highest since Margaret Thatcher's landslide in 1983. But with the failure of the Liberal Democrats, the Labour party gained ground. We are now in a traditional two-party battle.

Up to this election, the main opposition in Poole was provided by the Lib Dems. We must now reconsider our tactics – the Labour party gained nearly four times more votes than the previous opposition. Now Labour's Marxist dogma forces us to rethink our strategy to combat their rhetoric directly.

The next scheduled election will be in May 2019, which is a Local Council election. This may be for the existing Poole Borough Council or for a new larger conurbation. Whichever it is, the opposition will be different.

Peter Adams

Chairman, Poole Conservative Association
