Some Election Results

Election results are now in for the various figures I’ve taken an interest in over the past few weeks.

In Lincoln, the BNP’s “Rev” Robert West came fourth place with 1,367 votes (3% of the total), while in Croydon Central  his former cheerleader Pastor James Gitau, who switched at short notice to the Christian Party, managed 264 votes (0.5%), taking eighth place. Meanwhile, Christian Party leader George Hargreaves came sixth in Barking, with 482 votes (1.1%). In the Western Isles (Na H-Eileanan An Iar), the affiliated Scottish Christian Party candidate Tom Selfridge stepped down for an independent named Murdo Murray, who came a distant third with 1,412 votes (9.6%). The Christian Party of Wales’ David Griffiths came sixth in Clwyd West with 239 votes (0.6%) – a result that means Wales will keep its dragon flag, despite his warning that it is “a symbol of defeat and Satan”.

Among mainstream candidates, Philippa Stroud came second place in Sutton and Cheam, receiving 1608 votes fewer than the Liberal Democrat winner. Nadine Dorries won comfortably in Mid Bedfordshire, with 28,815 votes (52.5%, and more than twice the number of votes than her nearest rival).
