Con to Lab swings in Essex
May 15, 2013 5 Comments
I am grateful to Cllr Ian Gilbert for sharing the following data with me. This table shows the swing from the Conservatives to Labour in the recent Essex County Council elections. The divisions shown are those where Labour polled more than 20%.
|Swing % Con to Lab|
|Laindon Park and Fryerns||12.8|
|Wivenhoe St Andrew||11.9|
|Harlow South East||10.7|
I am pleased to note that the division that I helped out in had the biggest swing, and this is testament to Jerry Gibson and his hard-working team.
It does show the size of the mountain that Labour has to climb that of the 73 divisions in Essex we have only got above a fifth of the vote in fifteen of them.
