Early Christmas present for students everywhere Lib Dem vote shredded to 45 votes



Westbourne ward by-election result in full from Brighton and Hove is worth a look, a Tory ward where little has changed but look at the Lib Dem wipe out, the European Citizens Party will soon be ahead of them.

Con 1027 39.2% +0.7%
Lab 826 31.5% +3.2%
Green 645 24.6% +0.6%
Lib-Dem 45 1.7% -5.5%
UKIP 36 1.4% +1.4%
TUSC 26 1% +1%
EC 13 0.5% -0.7%

Turnout 2618 35.1%
Swing 1.3% Con to Lab


Shame we didn't win but Lib Dems look unlikely to recover from the coalition.
