BILL Rammell was MP for Harlow between 1997 and 2010. Back in 1997, over 25,000 Harlow residents voted for him and he had a 10,000 majority over the Conservatives.
On Thursday night, Labour lost by over 14,000 votes and just 13,000 voted for the Labour candidate, Laura McAlpine.
We spoke to Bill and asked for his reflections on the result and where do Labour from here.
Mr Rammell praises Ms McAlpine’s campaign but he does not hold back with his criticism of Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn calling him “the most disastrous leader that Labour has ever had.”
