This is a gripping personal account of how Labour managed to lose Hartlepool for the first time in the history of the constituency. Paul was Labour's candidate and in this comprehensive analysis, he explains the factors in the defeat, what the public really said to him and Keir Starmer about Labour, how Keir Starmer dealt with the public in Hartlepool and what Labour needs to do if it not only wants to win back a former safe seat, but ever wants to form a government ever again.
