Boris Johnson warned Winchester at risk after Tiverton and Honiton by-election result


The Liberal Democrats have issued a warning to Tories in Winchester after securing a historic double by-election victory.

Reacting to the victory, Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Winchester and Chandler's Ford, Danny Chambers, said:

"The Liberal Democrats have made political history"

"We have upturned one of the safest Tory seats in the whole country. If voters are frustrated and angry enough with this government to over turn a 24,000 majority in Devon, the Lib Dems have every chance of winning in Winchester and other places in Hampshire.”

Mr Chambers added:

“This by-election result sends a loud and clear message: it’s time for Boris Johnson to go, and go now. This is also a message to the government that they have got to do more to tackle the cost of living crisis. People are really feeling the pinch right now and we need someone sensible leading us through this difficult time, not Boris Johnson.

“We need a government that focuses on reducing energy bills by helping people insulate their home and move to renewable forms of energy. We need a government that protects British businesses and farmers which are struggling to trade with our closest allies and neighbours in Europe. We also need a government that cuts backlogs in our NHS and sorts out ambulance waiting times."

"People want change, and they want a credible government.”
