The activist tweeted: "This is just diabolical.

"Labour won 52.5% of the vote in Hartlepool in 2017.

"They won nearly 5 points more than the result below in 2019.

"Labour isn't just failing to win back 2017 Labour voters who voted for the Brexit Party in 2019 - it's bleeding support to left-wing parties."

But Brexiteer Martin Daubney hit back at Mr Jones, pointing out that Labour picked an arch-Remainer for its candidate despite Hartlepool backing Brexit by 69.6 percent in the 2016 referendum.

"So all the Brexit Party vote has swung Tory.

"Totally predictable & won't change until you lot stop treating the white working classes as thick racists."
