General Election 2019

  • This could be the most important election for decades.

    In this series, we will be covering three Tory-Labour marginals in depth – Bristol North West, Filton and Bradley Stoke and Kingswood, as well as providing the need-to-know information in Bristol’s three other Labour-held constituencies.

    We’ll also be looking Beyond Brexit to the other issues in our society, such as how we deal with the climate crisis, the NHS and education, and scrutinising the campaign materials of local candidates.
