Monday 25 November 2013


Unlike all the major pollsters this review of actual voting shows not such a wild swing to Labour nearly 30,000 votes cast and spread across 19 various wards. It only shows a 3.1% swing to Labour. With the Liberal Democrats actually taking Kirklees (golcar) from Labour and if the candidate in Scarboro hadn't withdrawn these percentages could have been even less fluctuating. Labours upward percentage may have been wiped out with liberal Democrats not losing as much.

UKIP yet again become the biggest gainers with double digit rises. Doing well by coming 2nd to Labour and doing strong again with Conservative wards.
