Local left hopeful Lucy Burke has won the contest to be Labour’s candidate for Bury South in the next parliamentary election – winning around 130 votes out of 180.
This in a CLP (constituency Labour party) represented since 1997 by hard-core right-winger Ivan Lewis.
Congratulations to Ms Burke and her campaign team.
