In the Red Corner

Emma Hardy

Congratulations to former Wyke student Emma Hardy on her election to Parliament. Emma is now the Labour MP representing Hull West and Hessle. She successfully contested the seat against a challenge mounted by a confident Conservative candidate to the seat formally held by long serving former Labour Minister Alan Johnson.

Emma will face another former student, Andrew Percy MP, who is the Conservative Minister for the Northern Powerhouse, representing Brigg and Goole. Andrew has now defended his seat at three successive elections and is seen by many as a rising star in the world of politics.

You won’t be surprised to discover that both studied A Level Government & Politics whilst at Wyke.
