Adam Trimingham (The Argus, May 6) is wrong to assume that Labour’s current political woes will automatically translate into Tory victories here in Brighton. While I agree fully that Labour is likely to lose out across the board in the various forthcoming elections, the looming battle over the key Brighton Pavilion seat in the next general election has always been a two-horse race between the Tories and the Green Party.

Labour was never seriously going to get a look-in. Its team lacks experience, gusto and, crucially, support from the electorate.

Independent poll-watchers Forecast UK continue to predict a Green Party general election victory in the heart of Brighton. This is backed up by what the people of Brighton tell us every time we take to the streets to canvass opinions.

Labour may be dead in the water but the Tories are no longer the only viable alternative.
