Women’s Equality Party leader Sophie Walker delivered the first salvo of the election by going head to head with Shipley MP Philip Davies.
But can she win? Sarah Freeman reports. There’s been a last minute change of venue. Instead of the Interlude Tea Rooms, Sophie Walker, leader of the Women’s Equality Party, has decamped to Fanny’s Ale House in Shipley with a few of her campaign team.
Green party stands aside in Shipley to clear the field for equality candidate
The Green party has announced it will not run a candidate in Shipley in the first signs of an electoral alliance between progressive parties in Yorkshire. The party is instead urging supporters to get behind the Women’s Equality Party (WEP) candidate Sophie Walker in an effort to oust incumbent Tory MP Philip Davies.
