Liberal Youth @ Feltham & Heston by-election

Liberal Youth had a brilliant showing at the recent Feltham & Heston parliamentary by-election.

Young campaigners came from all over the country, including branch members from as far as Manchester and Durham, plus of course the national Liberal Youth exec.

Candidate Roger Crouch tweeted:

 “Pleased that so many @liberalyouth activists are helping with #felthamandheston campaign: they will be great ldrs of the party in the future”

Although Labour held this safe-seat as expected, the Liberal Democrats held a respectable 3rd position, and collected considerable amounts of data for developing the seat in future.

Results in detail

  • Labour – 12,639 (54.42%, +10.79%)
  • Conservatives – 6,436 (27.71%, -6.32%)
  • Lib Dems – 1,364 (5.87%, -7.87%)
  • UKIP – 1,276 (5.49%, +3.45%)
