She said: "I am delighted to have been selected as the candidate for Chorley and I would be honoured to represent it, working hard in Westminster to be a strong local voice on the issues that matter to our area".

Labour face an uphill battle in the constituency having polled just 14 per cent of the vote in 2015.

"This time, students have registered to vote in large numbers but they are less likely than the electorate as a whole to back the Conservatives".

"I resigned my frontbench position, yes, but that was over the handling of Brexit, and that's done now".

A far more intriguing result is expected in the West Midlands, where two million people across Birmingham, Coventry, Sandwell, Dudley, Solihull, Walsall, and Wolverhampton will be eligible to cast a vote for the region's first directly-elected metropolitan mayor.

Campaigning for the national vote on June 8 will slow drastically on Thursday because of the elections at 88 councils in England, Scotland and Wales, plus mayoral contests - which include six new devolved super-regions.

Despite his own views on the party's leader, Mr Reed wants voters to stick with the party based on his record helping local people, and the need to oppose the Conservatives.

"It's virtually unknown for an opposition party to win a general election when it hasn't been getting quite high percentage votes in the local elections immediately before", Prof Travers said. The Green Party don't have a monopoly on progressive ideas but by taking the lead on a strategy of trying to oust the Tories, we certainly can have a significant effect on the outcome of this election.
