North East Cambridgeshire result

The North East Cambridgeshire election results came through later than originally predicted, at around three in the morning at the Hudson Leisure Centre in Wisbech. They are as follows:
  • Steve Barclay (Conservative) 26,862

  • Lorna Spenceley (Liberal Democrats) 10,437

  • Peter Roberts (Labour) 9,274

  • Robin Talbot (UKIP) 2,791

  • BNP 1,747

  • Debra Jordan (Independent) 566

  • English Democrat 387
The Liberal Democrats have moved from third place to second, and from 17% of the vote to 20%. The Labour vote has collapsed from 30% in 2005 to 17% this time.

I've congratulated Steve Barclay on his election as MP for our constituency, and hope that he'll represent this beautiful area and its people as we deserve to be represented.

I've also pointed out that nationally, the unfolding results show how badly our electoral system is broken.
