Esther McVey vows to 'continue to be very visible across the constituency'


Esther McVey has expressed her delight after being re-elected as the MP for Tatton.

Ms McVey said "Clearly it was a difficult election for the Conservative Party and the election in Tatton was keenly contested by the other Parties, and I commend the other candidates on their energetic campaigns.

"I am therefore delighted that my hard work locally since I was first elected in 2017 has been recognised by local residents, and I am very grateful to the people of the Tatton constituency for once again putting their trust in me to represent them in Parliament.

"I will continue to be very visible across the constituency and play an active role in the local community.

"If anyone wishes to meet with me or would like my assistance with anything I encourage them to contact me".

Esther McVey can be contacted via email [email protected]

She was certainly invisible during the run up to the election. I saw no placards in the area (many for Ryan Jude) and received no leaflets from her party nor saw any sign of canvassing! I am stunned that such complacency succeeded!

She isn’t very good at reading the room is she?

Unfortunately in Tatton we would elect a dead donkey, as long as it’s dressed in blue.

It’s a safe seat.

She voted to stop children’s free school meals.

Actually voted to stop them.

On that point I’ll never forgive her.

My children never had them. But many children do have them.

Dreadful self-serving woman

I think this election has demonstrated that Tatton can no longer be relied on as a safe seat for the Conservatives. Tatton is now the 16th most marginal seat in the UK on 1.09%. That figure may change of course. With a strong opponent, a good campaign and the right conditions, the Conservatives can be beaten in Tatton.

I would like to be able to say this might give Esther McVey something to think about and she will change and won’t take the Tatton electorate for granted, but I can’t. It took just 5 days before she restarted her culture wars. This is what you voted for more of Tatton, take a bow...

When George Osbourne was our MP he was always around town and approachable. I've never seen this woman since she took over. I voted Labour in the election for only the second time in my life in the hope we'd get rid of her. Now we're stuck with her for another few years. Hopeless.

So much for being visible!! I have lived in Tatton for 26 years, I have never seen Ms McVey, nor her predecessor George Osbourne once. Have I just been unlucky?
I have seen Ryan Judd three or four times in the past month.

@Brian Hall, you missed the huge sign on Altrincham Road :)
@Helen Hayes, only required around 1,500 votes more since Labour was strong this time or were the tories weak?

Helen. Some people would vote for a dead donkey with a red rosette! Or a jihadi. Oh they did!! Osborne was a clown. I met him once and he managed to lower my opinion of him. Impossible I thought before! He appointed the Canadian berk responsible for many of our problems.

Esther McVey is not interested in serving this constituency- she is more interested in her TV career on GB News and her own publicity. We were hoping people would see the light and vote her out. We nearly did it, maybe next time!

@William McQueen,

George Osborne was (imho) a self-serving Tory Boy that was parachuted into our “Safe Seat” to further the ambitions of The Bullingdon Club led regime that exploited a moment in time (and us) to fulfil their own interests.

At the same time that Osborne was foisting “Austerity” upon us, he was manipulating the rules surrounding constituency home ownership to trouser huge amounts (£100’s of £1000’s) of tax-payer money to line his own pockets.

When he arrived in Tatton he told us that he wasn’t going to be some sort of Jonny-cum-lately, he was invested in the community, he wanted to be a part of OUR community, his children would be educated locally etc etc.

I’m not sure about anyone else but I haven’t seen him recently at any PTA meetings or Village Fete’s or down the Pub
and so I have to conclude that he was less than honest with his pledges to local people.

Bee in bonnet Helen. Free nosh all round at the taxpayers expense, Rashford style. Perhaps encouraging people not to breed if they cannot take care of their offspring is an idea to consider.
The massive job losses about to begin may focus minds on just what they have voted/wished for!

If you look at the register of members' interests for members of the Parlament

You can see that our MP Esther McVey worked a total of 182 hours and earned £54,283.33 for GB News and Daily Express between April and December last year.

That's 23 days - when we were paying her £85,000 to be our member of parliament

She also went to the Goodwood Festival 2023 as a guest of the Qatar Ministry of Sports and Culture and to Lingfield races as a guest of Arena Racing Company—another two days of not doing her job.

She is not the worst member of parliament, but it's good to remember what we are paying her to do, or not do.

It is interesting to note that GB News gets around the OFCOM guidelines on serving politicians appearing on news programmes (“No politician may be used as a newsreader, interviewer or reporter in any news programmes unless, exceptionally, it is editorially justified. In that case, the political allegiance of that person must be made clear to the audience”) by claiming to be an entertainment channel, not a news channel.

I suppose that claim is justified, since their far-right nuttiness certainly makes me laugh.
