    I think labour should put a labour MP in place to replace Cameron in Witney. The people of his former constituency would probably choose a labour MP after 6 years of having David Cameron.
    The reasons are that people in Witney probably suffered the worst under Cameron's austerity, benefit cuts and bedroom tax were probably far worse here as a result of having the PM as local MP. I also think that since Cameron caused the EU referendum that Brexit will happen much quicker in Witney unless a labour MP can save Witney.
    So I would not be surprised if Cameron is replaced by a labour MP.

    If Witney has a high proportion of unemployed people who don't work then surely the Tory party are the last people they'd support, with all their cuts to welfare? If people don't work they can claim unemployment benefits and the unemployed are currently being threatened to look for work or be sanctioned and loose their benefits.
    Please for the love of god, just stop.

    Yes but labour is right behind them with a higher percentage gain of 4.2% vs 1.4% anything could happen with Brexit ruining the economy. People Witney may be scared and vote labour to stop or slow down Brexit.

    I mean Teeside is therefore similar the Witney. A lot of people there don't work either and get welfare. But they support labour.
    Do you genuinely not understand the difference between "don't have to work" and "don't work?" I doubt the good people of Witney are particularly bothered about welfare cuts or bedroom taxes.
