How Lewisham Voted – GLA

London Elects has results by ward for the elections at the beginning of the month. I’ve taken the chance to have a look at how we voted for our local GLA representative by ward. I’ve concentrated on the four candidates who gathered the most votes.

    Has anyone commented on the UKIP mayoral vote, in general rather than just Lewisham?

    In the 2004 first round they had about 112,000 votes but this time only about 22,000.

    The number of votes for the BNP candidate increased but his share fell below 3%.

    The increase of BNP mayoral votes seems to be in line with the increased turnout rather than a swing to the BNP?

    I think the main beneficiaries of the collapse in the UKIP vote were the Tories, not the BNP – their vote only increased marginally (less than a percent across London on the list), but unfortunately enough for them to win a seat.
