L&F has a notional Labour majority of 4000, but Ben Wallace MP won Lancaster & Wyre over at the last election which covers much of L&F, and there were some strong local election results in Fleetwood recently. The Chairman, Robin Jackson, said:
"Grim up North? Our new consituency includes the beautiful Lune valley (excellent salmon), moors owned by the Duke of Westminster and by the Queen, Duke of Lancaster (excellent pheasant), the fields of rural Wyre (excellent, er, cows) and the bracing sea air of Fleetwood(excellent sailing). The historic county city of Lancaster has two, excellent grammar schools, and the University (excellent) is home to our secret campaign weapon: Lancaster Conservative Future! We have one of the biggest Green Party votes in the country, so Zac, if you are reading this, are you up for a challenge? We have also just opened a new office as a regional hub to provide training and support to neighbouring Constituencies."
