Greens win Brighton Council by-election, Congratulations Cllr Lizzie Dean

Lizzie Deane holds council seat with increased vote share

"I would like to thank the voters for putting their faith in me to represent them as a councillor.
"I look forward to representing the people of St Peter and North Laine.
"This result is a testament to the hard work of 14 years of Green councillor representation.
"Thank you to everyone who voted for me.
"I am honoured to have been elected to succeed Keith Taylor."

Result
GRN 1816 (56.8%) + 2.5%
LAB 880 (27.5%) + 4.3%
CON 365 (11.4%) - 0.7%
LD 103 (3.2%) - 4.9%
IND 32 (1%) NC


Great to see Lizzie Dean elected in the seat, which was Keith Taylor's before he moved on to become a Euro MP, with a massive majority.

The very low showing by the LD is very interesting. Is that normal for the location, or does it reflect dissatisfaction with their involvement in the coalition with the Tories?

Looks like the LD vote is down 4%, the Lab vote up 4%. This could be doom for the LD. Or perhaps there are local factors.
