Commenting on the election, Island Labour’s candidate, Richard Quigley, said,
“Congratulations to Bob Seely on his re-election as the Island’s MP.
“Whilst we will always disagree on politics, he was always courteous when our paths crossed on the campaign and at hustings.
“I look forward to Bob delivering his Island deal, as there are no excuses not to in a government with an 80 seat majority. I hope the leader of our Council holds him to his promise.
“Thank you also to the County Press and Isle of Wight radio for organising the final hustings of the campaign. It was well attended and well received by those that attended and listened in.
“My final thanks is reserved for everyone that got involved in the Labour campaign her on the Isle of Wight, against a national backdrop of a fall in Labour support, we increased our vote and our vote share. Something everyone involved can be very proud of.”
