Don Valley, a Labour-held seat since 1922, turned blue on Friday, December 13, as Conservative Nick Fletcher took the South Yorkshire seat from Caroline Flint to add to a dreadful night for the UK opposition Labour party.
Flint took to Twitter to place the blame on “Corbynistas” and “Labour uber remainers” for Labour’s poor showing.
She said: “We’re going to hear the Corbynistas blame it on Brexit and the Labour Uber Remainers blaming Corbyn. Both are to blame for what looks like a terrible night for Labour. Both have taken for granted Labour’s heartlands. Sorry we couldn’t offer you a Labour Party you could trust.” Credit: Doncaster Council via Storyful
