Why vote Labour in Hastings and Rye?

Hastings and Rye has remained a closely-contested seat between Labour and the Conservatives, with a narrow Tory majority in the 2019 election. Local politics in Hastings has seen upheavals and the Green Party can win ward-based elections in the town. However, when voters are thinking in the context of national elections they line up behind Labour or the Tories, with the Greens polling at a deposit-losing fifth place in the latest polling for Hastings and Rye. Labour is well ahead of the Tories in voting intention, but polls have tightened during campaigns before and been in error in some previous elections.
