  1. You should submit them during the consultation period.

  2. Looks like the Tories have won Tees Valley

  3. North East region prediction:

    Brex: 2
    Lab: 1

    Pretty uncontroversial, this one. I can’t see any other result really, the small seat allocation means the margin of error I have to play with is pretty huge.

  4. Turnout

    Darlington 31.7%
    Durham 32.9
    Gateshead 34.1
    Hartlepool 25.5
    Middlesbrough 25.6
    Newcastle 38.8
    North Tyneside 34.9
    Northumberland 34.0
    Redcar and Cleveland 29.7
    South Tyneside 31,9
    Stocketon 31.8
    Sunderland 31.7

  5. Forrmer Tory MSP Brian Monteith who writes for the Scotsman and is top of the brexit list here has an address in France.

  6. First offical result.
    Brexit Party two seats and Labour one.

  7. Labour bailed out by ChangeUK’s Frances Weetman, who put in a relatively strong performance which took the last seat away from the Lib Dems.

  8. And Frances is ex Labour who quit over antisemitism and brexit.

  9. Seb Payne of the Financial Times North east report.
    Tories confident of breaking the Red Wall – they think feelings have hardened against Jeremy Corbyn on the doorstep as the campaign has gone on.

    Darlington – The Tory thinks he has done ‘everything possible” to win the seat and was content.

    “People are lending us their vote — you wouldn’t call all these people voting for us Tories by any means. We will have to prove they were right to trust us

    Bishop Auckland – The NE seat the Tories most confident of taking. The Tory Candidate says the undecideds are breaking for her.
    “The campaign has got better and better. We have been waiting to see if the bubble would burst like in 2017, but it hasn’t.”
    Seb Payne reports the only pledge to cut through is ‘Get Brexit done’

    Stockton South – Tougher for the Tories as the sitting Labour MP has a good reputation – “People can see I’m genuine. I have worked hard for our local area. I have focused on things that are important to local people.”

    Sedgefield – Of interest for the Tories but resources not been thrown at it. If it goes Tory it only be because of the National Swing.

    MRP. First and Current
    Darlington – T 43/41 L – T 45/39 L
    Bishop Auckland T 47/40 L – T 47/42 L
    Stockton South T 39/42 L – T 45/45 L (L slightly ahead.)
    Sedgefield T 40/41 L – T 40/39 L
