Most improved student

Most improved is always a bit of a double edged sword, it is an award which usually hides more than it reveals.

Luke Akehurst has done some number crunching and has come out with a number of top 10 lists relating to the London elections last month. Here is the list of the top ten improvements in the Conservative vote from 2004:
1. East Wickham, Bexley: +31.96
2. Falconwood and Welling, Bexley: +31.49
3. Biggin Hill, Bromley: +30.79
4. Orpington, Bromley: +30.13
5. Blackfen and Lamorbey, Bexley: +30.03
6. Cray Valley West, Bromley: +29.89
7. Farnborough Common and Crofton, Bromley: +29.53
8. Blendon and Penhill, Bexley: +29.52
9. St. Michael’s, Bexley: +28.67
10. Mottingham and Chislehurst North, Bromley: +28.61
Notice anything?
Once again I feel that I (and Boris) need to give the Bexley and Bromley activists a huge thank you.

  1. And as the GOTV Co-ordinator for East Wickham can I just say it was down to Graham D’Amiral for a superbly organised campaign in Old Bexley.And of course our team of road stewards/volunteers locally and of course James for coming canvassing!!

  3. JamesWhat’s it feel like to have the second biggest personal mandate in the UK (after Boris)?These increases in vote – in former Labour and Lib Dem wards are a fantastic tribute to the work done by local activists in recent years. Many were taken from the opposition in 2006 and some in 2002 local elections.As Beckenham Chairman I have sent a cheque for the marked register for our constituency so we can do a turnout analysis as well as using it for the next election. This should provide us with the postal votes per ward, the missing info so far.
