Lewisham’s votes for Labour Leader

The data for how we came to choose Ed Miliband as the leader of the Labour Party includes how party members first preferences were cast at a constituency level.

What we don’t get is how people’s second, third and so on preferences played out, so what follows is just a bit of fun.

So, beyond David and Ed Miliband’s popularity with party members in Lewisham (and beyond) what can we pick out of these numbers?

It seems to me that how our MPs voted did have some impact on our three electorates particularly where they weren’t supporting David – Andy Burnham doing reasonably well in East, Ed taking a few extra % points in Deptford.

The other thing that strikes me is how well Diane Abbot did, taking 9% in both Deptford and West.

    Lovely, but why the donut charts? A bar chart works much better!
