The real story of Sleaford and North Hykeham that you won’t see in the media in one picture

Something for you to promote about the place a bit.


Sleaford and North Hykeham change in vote share

On half the turnout, Liberal Democrats still increased their actual number of votes and were the only party to do so.

  • Probably says more about where we were in 2015 than where we are now. Well done though to all involved. A good result.

    Except the graphic is from Sky news which was the last time I looked part of the media.

    Perhaps you mean BBC rather than media?

  • Yougov- the Lib Dems gained two points to hit 11 per cent. Still low but moving in the right direction.

  • Sadly 11% in one yougov poll could be normal variation, (although I hope its part of a trend) I wonder how much of a bounce will be left come February ? We need to be targeting for substantial gains, 100+ in the local elections in May.

  • even the telegraph has the chart, but in a typically biased fashion, it incudes all the parties that stood.

  • The chart seems to indicate that the Lib Dems are gaining most from Labour’s woes, which is what most people would expect. Surely the Labour party will see sense and get rid of Corbyn and his cronies shortly. If that happens they could win that support back rather quickly.

  • 3 interesting local by elections next week in Somerset and Devon. We could have a chance in each.

  • Many are suggesting, reasonably, that these results suggest a return to our 2010 form, but that doesn’t mean it’s not significant. Many of our voters had turned away from us, supposedly never to return, so it seems people are at least being pragmatic.

    No party wants to be remembered only for the unpopular/sad/bad/daft things they did while in power, but then every party that has been in power has these, so if you want to vote for a party that has a chance of victory, you might have accept the party you select is imperfect.

  • 105 votes up on 2015 ?

  • @ john Don’t under egg the pudding. It was up by 106.

  • The overall turnout was paltry. I think a greater effort could have been made trying to persuade Remainers to turn out in force, as the Leave vote was going to be split. UKIP standing was a bonus. LibDems could have been second place easy.

  • John> 105 votes up on 2015 ?
    Yes. As against:
    Tories down 17,235
    Labour down 7,327
    Ukip down 5,290
