Congratulations on such an impressive swing Tom and team.

One response to “Big swing to Lib Dems as Conservatives hold Middlesbrough seat”

  1. That Middlesboro result .The loss of Labour vote and the Tory drop equals the Lib dems and 2 Indies exactly. Therefore is it Tories solid and Labour in meltime? Also it shows that the opposition does split the vote to let Tories in. Arrangements with opposition parties,locally or nationally could be of use. If ALL opposition parties allied with STV an Alliance could be formed.
