Bristol West: Thangam Debbonaire (LAB)
Glasgow North: Patrick Grady (SNP)
We're a tiny red island in a blue sea of selfish cunts.
(my parents constituency)
A swathe of rural Tories brought into the fold.
Didn't help that the last labour MP Dr Ian Gibson was exposed as an expenses fiddler either. Had his daughter living in his "second home". Chloe Smith reaped the rewards of his dishonesty.
Actually I may be wrong re the boundary changes. Looks like it lost some rural voters actually.
Makes it even worse. Stupid urban Tory cunts.
Margaret Ferrier - SNP
We don't live far.
Although weirdly the Tories increased their vote share slightly because the spineless Lib Dems completely and utterly collapsed like the bunch of wankers they are.
Taking over from Joan Ruddock after 28 years with a whacking 60.2% of the vote...
Conservative hold. Moderate swing to Labour. Only a really good night for Labour would've changed that
Somehow survived the SNP surge that ravaged the rest of England.
Mostly due to the students (rightly) deserting the Lib Dems.
I was wondering if they might have got in as the exit polls suggested two Green MPs.
with a greater majority, which surprised me. But I'm dead chuffed, she's feckin' great.
with a 71% turnout, complete landslide.
Jo Stevens, Labour, took Cardiff Central from the Lib Dems by a majority of 5k.
with a massive 55% of the vote. Greens in second too which is nice
she seems a good egg
a swing from Lib Dem to UKIP and Con. :(
we're nearly 23k majority Tory voting cunts!!! (what is the largest majority announced thus far? this has got to be one of the highest)
In favour of the Tories. Dead seat.
Lab gain from LD with a 8.7% majority, 64% turnout
unseats Simon Hughes which I'm quite pleased with, even if I voted Green (who came 5th behind Tories and UKIP)
UKIP beat the Green Party by 4 votes
50.6% of the vote (CON next biggest with 24.2%), 66% turnout.
I voted Green, who came third (8.5%).
Right so Im still registered in Harrow East where my parents live. This was a marginal that looked to be swinging in the direction of Labour. Almost a 70% turnout, Tories - 24k, Lab - 19k. :(
Not sure why this area continues to support the tories. Its got a big rich asian and jewish population i guess...
Harrow west went 24K Lab, 20K - Tory, so I guess that the margins swing both ways
OH, but Tulip Siddiq (Labour) beat the tories where I actually live - so thats something I guess..
Lib Dems got absolutely decimated, down 25.8%
I was one of only 2,109 people to vote Green :/
get out of there Mark Reckless (UKIP - after the recent by election when he jumped ship to UKIP)
thank FUCK we're no longer a ukip constituency (just a bummer it's tory!)
15,000 majority, 50% of vote. Another island of red in an ocean of blue
work: Labour, with Frank Dobson replaced by Keir Starmer, who, as i mentioned yesterday, is the ex public prosecutor who thinks that joking about blowing up an airport is worse than police manslaughter
No, anyone, ever
But otherwise she seems nice. Only one of the big 3 campaigners I didn't see out and about though.
3 times in and around Castle Park, outside Clifton Down shopping centre on bank holiday Monday (on a rickshaw for some reason) and outside the Victoria Rooms with The Natalie Bennett on Tuesday. Only saw Stephen Williams once, when he handed me a flier with his own picture on it.
actually take a small amount of pleasure from this
Hackney: Diane, innit
Probably. Dunno, not looked.
winchester will never not be tory
they had a huge majority and I quite liked our MP, he was constantly vocally against the coalition but now there's a tory in.
and he's called fucking Will Quince. Definitely a total cunt
Didn't get my vote, but he seems a nice enough chap
he only wants to scrap the Human Rights Act for foreign nationals, which is quite moderate given that Tory party policy is to get rid of it for all of us.
Conservative took it off the Lib Dens, predictable but sad as Lib Dem MP was v good
He's a good bloke.
She nicked a fair few votes from Labour and Lib Dem too though. Sigh.
Bye Vince :(
We lost a good MP in Anne Begg, but I'm happy with the party win
Seems to have a good strong voice on the NHS, although seemed very sleepy when I last bumped into her.
Only about 200 metres away from being able to vote for Jeremy Corbyn, which I was pretty annoyed about.
Hometown seat, Shrewsbury and Atcham, was Daniel Kawczynski (Cons) for the third straight time. I’ve reluctantly come to terms with the fact that we’re unlikely to go back to Labour in the near future, but I wish there was some way that we could get rid of him, even if it meant replacing him with another less annoying and shit Tory. There was a great quote from a Spectator article a few years ago that pretty much got him down to a tee:
“Mr Kawczynski’s first problem is that he is, by general cross-party agreement, the stupidest MP in the present House of Commons, arguably the stupidest ever. His second problem is that, unlike many stupid people, he doesn’t appreciate how stupid he is.”
