Election 2019: Statement from Rushcliffe’s new MP Ruth Edwards


Thank you to everyone who voted for me yesterday – I am very proud to be Rushcliffe’s new MP and I promise to be a listening MP, an effective MP in Westminster and one who puts this fantastic constituency first.

People have given me their trust and I am aware of the huge responsibility I now have. I will work hard for each and every one of you to the absolute best of my ability. I will not let you down.

The Prime Minister was completely right to say he was humbled by the faith voters have put in his government and I feel exactly the same. We must now form a People’s Government and deliver on Brexit, deliver on even better public services and make sure this country can heal its divisions, continue to prosper and regain its trust in politicians.

I would also like to thank my opponents Cheryl, Jason, Matthew and John and their teams, as well as my own fantastic supporters.

Democracy is precious and anyone who believes in their cause to the point they’re prepared to pound the streets in the cold and wet to take their message to voters deserves the utmost credit. I wish them the very best for the future.

In the next few days, I will start setting up an office and recruiting staff so I can get to work on helping my new constituents.

However, if you need to contact me while this is happening, then please email: ruth@ruthedwards.uk
