The best Lib Dem ward results in London, part 1

Now that the full ward-by-ward election results are out for the 2016 London Mayor and Assembly elections, here are the top 20 wards for Lib Dem vote share on the London Assembly list ballot.

I’ve picked this one as it’s the one where Liberal Democrats get elected in Mayor and GLA elections, so it’s the most important. It’s also the one that best captures the party’s underlying strength and weakness as it has the same parties on it across London, unlike the variation in constituency candidate line-ups.

So here are the top 20:

Southwark Surrey Docks 23.9%
Kingston upon Thames Grove 23.1%
Kingston upon Thames Berrylands 23.0%
Sutton Wallington South 22.9%
Kingston upon Thames Surbiton Hill 22.2%
Sutton Carshalton Central 22.0%
Sutton Wallington North 21.3%
Kingston upon Thames St Marks 21.2%
Kingston upon Thames Alexandra 20.9%
Kingston upon Thames Tolworth and Hook Rise 20.8%
Sutton Carshalton South and Clockhouse 20.8%
Kingston upon Thames Chessington North and Hook 20.8%
Sutton Sutton South 20.3%
Southwark Riverside 20.2%
Richmond upon Thames Teddington 20.0%
Sutton Wandle Valley 19.6%
Southwark Cathedrals 19.4%
Sutton The Wrythe 18.8%
Sutton Sutton West 18.7%
Kingston upon Thames Norbiton 18.6%

Honourable mentions to Muswell Hill, Haringey (15.8%) and Southfield, Ealing (15.6%) for being the top two wards outside Southwark, Kingston, Richmond and Sutton in the tables.

Next up when I’ve crunched the numbers will be the twenty best vote share changes.
