    From tricky skills Twitter it seems herne hill count is where the excitement is at , so maybe that’s why so many leaflets they knew it might be close.

    That's definitely why so many leaflets! It's the carnegie effect mainly.

    Voter count at St Judes was a massive 340 total at 6pm last night.

    I took one for the team and sat in the pub to count the number of potential voters going to St Judes for the next hour or so.

    Impressive result. They certainly put the work in for it.

    In Herne Hill ward. Going from 0/3 to 2/3.

    So Rachel Heywood lost her seat. Why? I thought she was supposed to be very popular. Or is that only when viewed from the U75 bubble?

    She’s coldharbour. Are those results in?

    Yes she lost, she got 660 votes. Three Labour Party machine winners in the high 1000s/low 2000s I think.

    Shit.
    Nobody even close to the lab votes. I don’t understand why bother to vote at all for more of same.
    I’m really disappointed, I know people haven’t got time to read about the individuals standing but thought enough people would recognise her from local activism stuff.

    Anyone clever enough to figure out what turnout % was if the top 3 all got about 2000 votes probably from same voters?

    Big contrast to the Herne Hill results where the other two greens were not far off the Lab votes at all.

    As pointed out elsewhere, split the votes for the independent guy between them and we could have had 3 greens.

    I thought the greens made a mistake in not suggesting who you vote for in 1,2,3 order, if you don't want to give all three to greens. That way they might have quite easily got 2 in.

    Good result.

    Cressingham sadly doesn't seem to have had much impact on the vote in Tulse Hill with 3 Labour councillors well out in front of all the others.

    I make it (v roughly) about 15% turnout in coldharbour ward if the winning 3 were mostly voted for by the same voters. A decidedly underwhelming democratic experience all round.

    Dunno how you’ve calculated that but I suspect it’s a bit low. Overall turnout for Lambeth was 34% and I’d expect that to be fairly uniform across all wards, give or take.

    The fact that you who live very far away now are studying lambeths results makes me feel better about my late onset local politics nerdism. My number probably wrong yes.

    Once a Brixtonite, always a Brixtonite? Plus psephology has always been a strong weak point of mine.

    The bubble you are in.

    Typical nasty swipe from you.

    Unlike you who enjoys internet swiping from the safety of your keyboard I went out with others to distribute leaflets for her in the real world.

    Unlike you who lives in internet bubble. My life extends outside it.

    It was always going to be uphill struggle.

    You really come across as nasty unpleasant poster.

    Thing is on the large estates in Coldharbour none were under threat. There was nothing that controversial going on in Coldharbour.

    Labour didn't bother doing campaigning in Coldharbour ward. Only people I saw where Greens and Rachel supporters.

    Its still despite gentrification of Brixton still a working class ward. People vote Labour full stop. Our New Labour party take that for granted.

    Rachel didn't do to badly. But standing as Independent was always going to be a handicap.

    For me it means I will have to deal with these people over Rec and adventure playground.

    How about responding to the content of my posts instead of these personal attacks? I've never had a go at you personally have I? You're not coming across as a very pleasant poster yourself at the moment.

    Rachel Heywood got fewer votes than either of the green candidates. Barely a quarter of the top two labour candidates. My impression is that she's had a relatively high profile. She's been there on most of the big issues in that ward over the past few years. The road closures. The arches. (At least the ones we talk about here. And I often get lectures on here from certain posters on how the stuff that gets talked about on u75 is not niche but what is important to all the 'ordinary people' out there). She was there talking at the Windrush thing the other week. She's also not an unknown but someone who people will already know as a councillor. So, seriously, I'm surprised that she got so few votes. Even accounting for u75 bubble distortions. Doesn't look like I'm the only one a bit surprised either.

    Sorry did I miss something? Your post was yet another of your swipes at Urban. The "content" of your post was attack on those in the Urban "bubble". Like Spam you know exactly what you are doing. So don't come all this is not personal attack nonsense on me. I know who that post was aimed at.

    You mean me?

    You really come across as tiresome, small minded and resentful.

    I do do notice you don't go down so well on politics boards.

    My bringing up on boards ( and politics boards recently) of what local people say to me is to get away from the internet "bubble" you so often here complain about.
