Labour Gets 9% Swing In Southfields

Sadly we didn’t win in Southfields today, but we increased Labour’s vote by 18 points.

Our campaigning alongside our excellent candidate, Josh Kaile proves that Labour are a real threat to the complacent Tories in Wandsworth, and that the Liberal Democrats are no longer seen as a viable alternative.

    How much of a predictor of full local election swing is a council by-election?

    • Helen Godwin Teige says :

      An interesting psephological question. Obviously by-elections are different from multi-seat elections and they may reflect national trends too – but what is clear is that Labour in Wandsworth will be mounting a strong challenge in 2014. We have strong organisation and active candidates. And if the Tories carry on as they are, their support won’t hold.

      Cllr. Andy Gibbons
