Question D

Today the city has three Labour MPs. Looked at historically this is most unusual. Brighton and Hove were bastions for the Conservative Party throughout most of the twentieth century.

The big breakthrough for Labour came when they won control of the then Brighton Council back in 1986. Then in 1995 Hove went Labour as well.

Still, it was an amazing victory when Labour won all three city parliamentary seats in 1997.

The only other time Labour won a seat was in 1964 in the Kemp Town constituency. The man who won the seat held it for Labour until 1970.

What was his name?
