Leader of the Opposition and Leader of the Labour Party Richard Leonard visits an Alexander Dennis bus depot as the General Election campaign begins. Leonard seeks an end to 17 years of Conservative Party rule, the longest period of Tory rule for almost 200 years. Prime Minister Geoffrey Cox, who has led the country since the 2016 retirement of William Hague, has called an election for May this year, and polls predict it will result in the first hung parliament for 47 years.

The fight to succeed former Health Secretary Frank Dobson was a very tough one. On the left, the Green Party candidate, and party leader Natalie Bennett. On the right, the Labour Party candidate, former Director of Public Prosecutions Keir Starmer. At the 2015 election, Natalie Bennett would become the new Green Party MP, overturning what once was an extremely large Labour majority, in one of the most catastrophic nights for the Labour Party in history. Keir Starmer was one of the many, many Labour figures introduced to the House of Lords in outgoing Prime Minister Tony Blair's resignation honours that year.
