Responding to the Prime Minister’s announcement that she intends to hold a snap General Election on 8th June, Newcastle North MP Catherine McKinnell said:

‘I am pleased to confirm that I’ll be seeking the nomination to stand again as the Labour candidate for Newcastle North in the forthcoming General Election.

‘It has been a huge honour to represent the area in which I was born, grew up and am now raising my own family – and I look forward to campaigning on my record as Newcastle North’s local MP.

‘People across the constituency know just how damaging the current Government’s policies have been for our area, and our public services, and I am determined to keep working hard to represent everyone here in Newcastle North.’

  1. I’m sure you’ll personally do well. Sadly I doubt the electability of Jeremy Corbyn. The result of which, I fear, could be a very damaging one to the Labour Party. The party that I was a member of & still a supporter of, for many years. Sadly the current leadership, or lack of it, is of great personal concern.
    Good wishes Catherine.
