Another kick in the teeth for Mr.'Sunshine' Cameron. His insincerity is finally starting to grate with voters. Pity these results have not been more widely reported.

Wycombe-Marlow North and West

Con 928
LD 382
Lab 209

(Con and Lab up, LD down)

Herts CC Harpenden SW ..easy Con hold

FWIS, the Herts division is in Peter Lilley's constituency, the Wycombe ward is in Beaconsfield, the Butt Lane ward will be in the Stoke North constituency and Copnor is in Portsmouth North

No mention of the near win for the BNP in Upper Beeding.

Correct, no mention of it because I don't report parish council results - only districts and upper tier.

I was brought up in the Marlow ward concerned (and was a candidate there at the age of 21!)

It was always a Con-LD marginal and its a bad result for the LD's there.

You also not worried that Nick Clegg is willing to form a coalition with the conservatives?

Working majority for Labour looks very unlikely

Confirms what I thought about Clegg - a Tory in yellow clothing.

Good result in Newcastle-U-Lyme. Keele Labour students are a very effective campaigning force and some of the credit for inceasing the Lab majority over the LibDems must go to them.
