Christian Holliday has been selected to contest Swansea East at the next general election. He is a planning consultant who was born and bred in Swansea and attended Swansea University - during which time he was treasurer of Swansea Conservative Future and then deputy chairman of Swansea East Conservative Association itself. More recently, Christian served as a member of Lord Heseltine’s Cities Taskforce.
The seat, unaffected by boundary changes, is held for Labour by first-term MP Sian James, who currently enjoys a majority of 11,249 over the Liberal Democrats. The Conservatives are in third place with a little over ten per cent of the vote and Christian would require a swing of over 23 per cent to win the constituency - which as far as I can tell has never had a Conservative MP.
