  1. Labour took 86.2% in Bedwellty in 1966.

  2. that’s pretty huge

  3. What a poor Labour performance in 2010 (by very high standards admittedly!)- 10% points below 1983.

  4. It’ll be interesting to see whether they come back in 2015 or whether other parties like Plaid and UKIP benefit instead.

  5. Prediction for 2015-
    Lab- 58%
    PC- 11%
    Con- 10%
    UKIP- 7%
    Lib Dem- 5%
    Independents- 5%
    Others- 4%

  6. Lab 52
    PC 19
    Con 13
    UKIP 6
    LD 4
    Oth 6

  7. Interesting that in 1987 Kinnock’s rise here was at the expense of the SDP candidate Jacqui Gasson, whose vote fell by 13.5%.

  8. It’s stretching it a bit to describe that as interesting. The actual Tory vote rose in both 1987 and 1992, something Kinnock himself strangely never referred to during his acceptance speeches.

  9. I was going to bring that up, but I guess the reason for the recovery in the Conservative vote here must have been because there were a few Tories in Islwyn who had voted SDP when they got the good result in second place to Kinnock in 1983.

  10. Also Bedwelty and Islwyn are both seats that have seen a good few of the Conservative candidates go on to become MPs- Paul Marland, Tim Yeo, Peter Brooke, Robert Walter and Peter Bone. Other later Conservative MPs to have stood years before in Welsh seats include James Paice and Rob Hayward.

  11. The old Bedwelty seat seemed to have a tradition of being good training ground for some future Conservative MPs- Paul Marland who stood in 1970 (Later MP for West Gloucestershire from 1979-1997), Tim Yeo (Now South Suffolk MP) in February 1974, Peter Brooke in October 1974, and Robert Walter (North Dorset) in 1979. Then here in 1992, the now well-known Peter Bone stood against Neil Kinnock, increasing the Conservative vote share.

  12. The actual Tory vote increased in both 1987 and 1992 which isn’t exactly what you’d have expected with Kinnock being leader in those years.

  13. Indeed. Something similar happened in a few safe Labour seats in Wales in those years, though it might have been a recovery after having been behind the SDP in their good year of 1983. Of course they fell right back here in 1997, and it has taken them 13 years to get back to the 14% core they seem to have here.

  14. when you look at the Welsh Assembly election of 1999, you will see that Brian Hancock of Plaid Cymru had a surprise win of Islwyn

  15. Labour hold. 17,000 majority

  16. The Labour majority has now decreased here again, although the Labour vote held up pretty well- Still, this seat has changed quite a bit I suspect, and will continue to be safe for the party, but nowhere near on the level it once was under Neil Kinnock I don’t think.

  17. Kinnock’s Snr’s announcement (not see another Labour Govt in his lifetime) is surprising at first, but thenm when you think about it – all he’s saying is that he doesn’t expect to live longer than the average male.

    ie he’s 74, hardly anyone expects Labour to win in 2020 so 2025 is the earliest possibility and that’s hard with a big Tory majority from 2020 to overturn.

  18. Maxim
    Once again your getting too excited, Its true Lab have weakened significantly here but your mistaking Labs (comparative) weakness to Tory strength, they’ve never got over 20% in this seat and managed a fairly miserable 15% and third place last time, and this is one of the better Tory prospects in the valleys!!!

    With mining gone many of these seats will become less monolithically Labour but the Tories are not necessarily the beneficiaries. Can’t remember who but somebody recently pointed out that in a lot of the really downtrodden former mining seats Lab strength will fall a lot due to the loss of industry and the Lab loyalty that went with it but then they’ll stabilise as they become the only game in town and the seats don’t gentrify since there is little to no desire for a mass colonisation by the middle classes thus preventing the Tories from making headway, Islwyn is probably one of those seats.

    Also Maxim I’ve been banging on about the Tory rep in Stoke a of of late but compared to the valley’s Stoke is in the same ballpark as Surrey!!! in the South Wales valleys the Tories are LOATHED for very obvious reasons. If people suddenly ditch Labour it will be for UKIP or Plaid or even the Lib Dems before its the Tories.

  19. When you said “Another seat where the Lab majority has tumbled since 1997. I wonder what the political map of Wales will look like in 20-30 years time, decidedly bluer I’d think” that sounded a lot like you were insinuating you thought seats like this might go Tory (which to be fair in 20/30 years time they might who knows)

    I agree on the list of the best Tory prospects.

  20. You do have to bear in mind though the 87 and 92 “Kinnock bounce” in Wales. Party leaders always do better in their nation of origin so Kinnocks 92 performance in Wales was above what was expected given the national picture.

  21. The Spitting Image puppets of Kinnock and his wife have sold at auction for £3,400.
