Conservative Group Congratulates New Labour MPs in Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes Conservative Group extends its heartfelt congratulations to the newly elected Labour MPs for Milton Keynes: Chris Curtis for Milton Keynes North, Emily Darlington for Milton Keynes Central, and Callum Anderson for Buckingham and Bletchley.

We acknowledge their commitment and efforts in their campaigns and wish them the very best as they take on their new roles.

We also wish to commiserate with the incumbents, Ben Everitt for Milton Keynes North, Iain Stewart for Buckingham and Bletchley, and Johnny Luk for Milton Keynes Central, who stood for the Conservative Party.

The residents of Milton Keynes have voted for change, and it is a moment for the Conservative Party to reflect, take stock, and come back with a stronger proposition for the people of the United Kingdom.

In Milton Keynes, we remain dedicated to delivering for our residents locally.

Cllr Shazna Muzammil, Conservative Group Leader and member for Tattenhoe Ward, said:

"On behalf of the Conservative Group, I wish the three new MPs the very best. While it was devastating to witness losses across the country, seeing our incumbents and candidate in Milton Keynes lose out was particularly tough. We have lost two dedicated MPs and a hard- working candidate, and it is a bitter pill to swallow.

We worked tirelessly to earn the trust of our residents, hoping they would vote based on our record of delivery for Milton Keynes. However, it would be false not to recognise that we may have fallen short on a national level in certain areas.

There can be no moving forward, no recovery until we understand just how damaged our party is with voters and why such damage has occurred. It is time for us Conservative politicians to pause and reflect on what went wrong and what we need to do better. The gap between Conservative and Labour in vote share is much narrower than the difference in seats, and I am confident the support we lost can be regained.

As we move forward, our commitment to the residents of Milton Keynes remains unwavering and we will continue to hold the Labour council to account. We will work hard to serve our community, ensuring that our councillors are always accessible and represent your interests effectively in the council”
