Gone are the heady days of a 70% turnout with a thousand or more Tory majority.
Our campaign in the Kempshott by-election told us that Kempshott residents are fed-up with being taken for granted. Many said they just would not be voting, and a good number said they would be switching thier votes.
The results reflect this turning opinion. Dyed-in-the-wool Tory’s just could not bring themselves to vote for more of the same.
The Labour vote and the Labour share of the votes continues to grow.
Kempshott is within our grasp.
