quick summary of election stats in Southport


  • 35% voted Lib Dem
  • 21% voted Con
  • 20% voted Lab
  • 15% voted UKIP (**)
  • 6% voted Southport Party (**)
  • ** = would have been higher if they had stood in all wards
  • over 8000 votes for Lib Dems
  • under 5000 votes for Cons
  • 6.7% swing from Con to Lib Dem since 2011 (which is a very large swing)
  • best swing to us was 10.6% in Cambridge (further analysis required to see if Tory candidate polled less well that other Tories in previous years and wards)

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
