While the whole world seems to be focused on the hung parliament negotiations I’d like to turn your attention to the results in Bexley and Bromley.
The great news is that at both the parliamentary and council levels the results were excellent for us. In both Bexley and Bromley the success of the Conservative administrations was recognised by the voters and rewarded with an increase in the number of Conservatives on Bromley council and in Bexley the Conservatives maintained their position holding all but 11 seats.
At the parliamentary level Bob Neill and David Evennett were both returned with increased majorities, James Brokenshire, Jo Johnson and Bob Stewart comfortably won their new seats. Chis Phillips and Colin Bloom had tough fights in Lewisham West & Penge and Erith & Thamesmead respectively but both increased their vote and share of the vote making both seats very winnable at the next election.
