  1. The only notional Labour marginals (Con 2nd) are Kenton and Finchley & Southgate. I don’t see the Conservatives gaining these but I could see Labour gaining Enfield, Hendon, Merton & Wimbledon Central and Croydon Central despite heavy loses outside London. I think the Conservatives will poll more strongly than 2015 in Leave constituencies but more poorly in Remain constituencies.

  2. @Dalek

    I actually agree that Labour could gain the proposed Enfield constituency, and indeed other London seats, irrespective of the national picture next time.

    In 1983 Labour gained the following (notionally Tory) seats in the cities:

    Birmingham, Erdington
    Liverpool, Broadgreen
    Glasgow, Cathcart

    There were also swings to Labour on 1979 in the following:

    Glasgow, Hillhead
    Manchester, Withington

    And others I’m sure.

    So even if it’s a landslide of 1983 proportions I do think Labour gains in London are possible.

  3. Merton & WimbledonCentral…Kenton…hardly the most important part of Harrow….when I see the ghastly new names and proposals, I wonder if the boundary changes will actually happen. But I suppose the discrepancy between electorate sizes can’t be left indefinitely.

  4. Isn’t Kenton in Brent?

  5. Part in Brent part in Harrow.

  6. There’s a poll in today’s Standard:

    Lab: 37%
    Con: 34%
    LD: 14%
    UKIP: 9%
    Green: 5%

    If true the Lib Dems have doubled their vote in London in the last two years (Brexit obviously beeing a big factor).

  7. No surprises here – compared to 2015/16 Labour down quite a bit, Tories static, LDs recovering (but not to pre-2010 levels), UKIP down. There are quite a lot of Lab seats with small majorities in London, so even this sort of swing, smaller than national polls, could be very damaging.

  8. Changes from 2015 general election:

    LAB -7
    CON – 1
    LDEM +6
    UKIP nc
    GRN nc

    Much smaller swing than national polls.

  9. I think if that was reflected in a GE the following seats would be in play:

    CON vs LAB
    Brentford & Isleworth
    Ealing Central & Acton
    Hampstead & Kilburn
    Ilford North
    Harrow West
    Eltham
    Enfield North
    Tooting
    Westminster North

    LAB vs LDEM
    Bermondsey & Old Southwark

    CON vs LDEM
    Kingston & Surbiton
    Sutton & Cheam
    Twickenham

    Odds and ends (unlikely to change hands)
    Carshalton & Wallington
    Dagenham & Rainham

  10. I’ve listed the CON-LAB fights in the order of likelihood of changing hands

  11. And then, of course, there’s Richmond and whether the Lib Dems can consolidate their byelection gain in a seat they held fairly recently

  12. It’s about the same the national swing is 4% this is 3%

  13. On Richmond Park.

    The Tories will be pouring their efforts into holding Twickers and regaining Richmond, so I think Brake could well hold on in Carshalton.

  14. New YouGov poll finds support for a burqa ban in all regions outside of London, including support for a ban in Scotland.
