Local Parliamentary Constituency results for 2015 General Election


David Winnick retains his seat, despite facing stiff competition from Nick Cotton and Margot Leadbetter. No pleasure at all in seeing Pete Smith lose his deposit, either. Cough. Image from Walsall Council’s live election coverage.

It’s been a long night – it’s now 5:30am – late for even me – and I’m off for a kip. It’s been a tough night for lefties, but I was pleased to see David Winnick hold onto his seat in Walsall North, which saw a very harsh campaign.

Of course, Wendy Morton won in Aldridge-Brownhills with a huge majority of more than 11,700, which is no surprise. Valerie Vaz, likewise, was never really in danger in Walsall South.

UKIP seem to have failed to make an impression, which I can’t say I’m upsets about and the Liberal Democrats are facing a wipeout. We’ll be in for an interesting few years to come.

Council election results are due this afternoon.
