Re-elected Worcester MP Robin Walker has thanked voters in Worcester who turned out in the cold and rain to cast their vote electing Robin to represent them in the House of Commons at a fourth consecutive election. First elected in 2010, Robin has now been re-elected as Worcester’s MP at the 2015, 2017 and 2019 General Elections. This time Robin secured 25,856 votes, which gave him a majority of 6,758.

Robin was delighted to see the Prime Minister putting One Nation Conservatism at the heart of his approach and welcome more than 100 new colleagues to Parliament and was thrilled with the result both in Worcester and nationally. The support of over 25,000 people in Worcester allowed Robin to achieve his highest ever majority and saw the highest Conservative vote share in 30 years.

Robin believes that with a strong majority in the House of Commons, the Conservative Government will now be able to break the deadlock in Parliament, bring the Brexit deal back to the House and get on with the job the British people elected the Government to do; to deliver on the result of the 2016 referendum and get Brexit done.

He also stated that the sentiment on the doorstep in Worcester was that the people are ready to get on with the other priorities the Conservatives have laid out including raising the level of school funding, 20,000 extra police officers, 50,000 nurses, a points-based immigration system and much more.

Speaking after the election result, Robin said:

“I am grateful for voters across the Worcester constituency for once again placing their trust and confidence in me to represent them. It is a great privilege to be able to continue to be a strong voice for our city in Westminster. It is also a huge responsibility and I am very aware that the people of Worcester want to see their MP get to work straight away so I will be doing just that.”

“I believe that significantly more people decided to vote Conservative because the Conservative Party was campaigning on the centre ground of British politics, on One Nation issues, on issues that matter to people like schools and hospitals but also on delivering the aspirations of the people of Worcester when it comes to Brexit and making sure we do leave the European Union, as the people of Worcester decided, and that we deliver a deal so that we can protect our economy.”

“I have been incredibly lucky to have a dedicated team of supporters and campaigners who have worked incredibly hard over the last few weeks to help with the campaign and I am grateful to them for their amazing efforts to get me re-elected.”
