General Election: Reactions to Rosie Duffield retaining Labour seat

The Conservatives have won their biggest majority in over 30 years, in a disastrous night for Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party. 

Leader of the Labour party, Jeremy Corbyn, has already said he will not lead his party into another election.

It’s not all bad for the Labour though. Rosie Duffield retained her seat in Canterbury with a 1,800 majority.

Locals have mixed opinions on the results, with some people happy that Duffield kept her seat.

But some people are not so happy, and were hopeful that Anna Firth would paint Canterbury blue again.
