Thank you to the 22,223 voters in Worcester who put their faith in me and the Labour Party at yesterday's General Election. Not quite enough to win, but an overwhelming vote of confidence in the positive and uplifting message of hope I conveyed throughout the campaign. Jeremy Corbyn delivered a manifesto so many could believe in, reasserting Labour's determination to tackle inequality and poverty and create a better, fairer society. I was proud to stand on that manifesto and will stand by it in the future. As today has unfolded, it is clear that we are left with a lame duck Prime Minister who will be shackled by the reactionary policies of the DUP. In Worcester we fight on.
