Election results in south-east London

Thursdays elections results are now in and the main tow parties have taken a battering nationally, but how have they fared in south east London?

In Greenwich borough the results look like this:

  • Labour 25% (-16)
  • Lib Dem 24% (+20)
  • Brexit 20% (+20)
  • Green 13% (+4)
  • Change UK 6% (+6)
  • Conservatives 6% (-10)
  • UKIP 3% (-18)

It’s seemingly one of the few places Labour came in first across the UK. ChangeUK also appeared to have done better than many areas though only polled 6 per cent.

In Lewisham Labour lost top spot to the Lib Dems:

  • LDem 28.1% (+22.1)
  • Labour: 26.0% (-19.9)
  • Green: 20.1% (+5.7)
  • Brexit: 11.9% (+11.9)
  • Conservatives: 3.4% (-8.1)
  • UKIP: 1.4% (-10.9)

Has a ruling party nationally (just about) ever had a lower vote share than 3.4% in an election?

Over in Bexley the Brexit Party dominated. No percentages yet as its half 12 and I’m exhausted:

  • BRX: 26,369
  • LIB: 9,198
  • LAB: 8,489
  • CON: 7,076
  • GRN: 5,025
  • UKIP: 3,002
  • CHUK: 2,352
  • AWP: 1,003
  • WEP: 653
  • UK EU: 397





As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    Sombre reading but not unexpected. I’m sure nothing will be learned from this

      Somber? Only if you’re a Bexley resident, like me, as we now have confirmation that a huge swathe of our fellow borough residents are empty-headed morons willing to vote for a charlatan with no policies and no manifesto.

      Greenwich and Lewisham seem to have roundly rejected said frog-faced twat and his latest vanity project, which is vastly more gratifying to hear.
