The British National Party got over 5000 votes in Oldham. That was 11% of the vote. They came in 4th.
And in Oldham West and Royston, they came in 3rd with 16%, and beat the Lib Dems.
Bloody hell. Remind me not to move there in the summer, when my Asian heritage shows in my face.
So far the results are:
Conservative - 1 (ha!)
Lib Dem - 7
SNP - 1
The Lib Dems hold Kingston and Surbiton. That's the next constituency to us - most of Kingston is in there. I think the boundary is our road!
(We're in Richmond Park).
Lab: 168, Con: 2, Lib Dem: 12, SNP: 1
In Wyre Forest, the independent candidate, who was standing on a single policy of keeping Kidderminster Hospital open, won with 28,000 votes! The Labour candidate only got just over 10,000 votes.
Wow!! And yay for him, that's fantastic.
