Labour's Battlegrounds - Headland launches interactive map of Labour candidates and what's needed to win

Although Labour has been leaps and bounds ahead in the polls, we shouldn’t underestimate the scale of the challenge Keir Starmer is taking on. His party needs a national swing of over 12% to win with even a small majority. That’s a record not even accomplished by Tony Blair. Nonetheless, Labour is well-prepared, with candidates already selected in almost all the seats it plans to contest.

To help businesses understand Labour’s battleplans, and as part of our ongoing analysis of the General Election, today Headland has partnered with LabourList, one of the leading authorities on the Labour Party. Together we are delighted to be launching the first UK constituency map of Labour’s General Election candidates.

The interactive map shows Labour’s range of candidates across the country, the swing required to win in each constituency, recent local polling, and the current MP in each seat. The map also reveals the final seats where Labour is yet to select a candidate for the election – although we expect to know these final names in the coming days.

We hope the map is a valuable tool for anyone looking to understand and engage with the Labour Party and the new cohort of Labour MPs which look set to enter the Commons in July.

You can access the map below, or on the LabourList website.
