Labour has selected Phil Brickell as its Parliamentary Candidate for the next General Election.
Following a hustings and vote of local Labour Party members on Saturday 1st July, Phil Brickell won a majority of votes cast.
Phil Brickell said: “It is an honour to have been selected as the Parliamentary candidate for Bolton West.
“I am extremely proud to have been backed by so many Labour members, Councillors and trade unionists in the constituency. It shows we have the movement to win here in Bolton West.”
“Bolton West deserves better than this government. After 13 years of the Tories, nothing in this country seems to work anymore. The Tories have broken Britain – and they are too distracted by THE chaos of their own making to fix it.”
“We are five Tory Prime Ministers on and what has our country got to show for it? Food prices, energy costs and mortgages spiralling out of control, longer hospital waiting lists and crime through the roof.”
“Labour will restore Britain’s hope and optimism, and deliver on the change our country has demanded after 13 years of Tory failure.”
“Labour has a plan to help people through the cost of living crisis, tackle NHS waiting lists and ensure people feel safe on our streets.”
A Labour Party spokesperson added: Phil Brickell is an outstanding choice for Bolton West. He knows the issues local residents face. Phil is best placed to make the case for the investment Bolton West needs in vital public services – like transport, the NHS and education – after 13 years of Tory mismanagement.”
