Will UK Labour lose a seat they have held since 1950?

The Express reports:

A NEW poll has revealed that Ukip leader Paul Nuttall is on track to easily win the Stoke Central by-election and cause a political earthquake.

According to the poll commissioned by Labour Leave, Ukip has a strong lead in the Labour stronghold with 35 per cent 10 points ahead of Labour.

The by-election is set to take place on 23 February after leading moderate Tristram Hunt quit to become director of the V&A museum.

Despite being a very close third in the general election in 2017 the Tories are lagging behind on 10 per cent.

Stoke had one of the strongest Leave votes in the referendum with almost 70 per cent of voters backing Brexit.

Labour may regret selecting a candidate who was pro-remain in an area so heavily in favour of Brexit.
