Congratulations to Plymouth’s newest Councillor, Paul McNamara who stormed to victory in yesterday’s Efford and Lipson by-election.
Paul has some big shoes to fill following on from former Councillor Brian Vincent who sadly died recently, but I know he will work hard for the communities of Efford, Laira, Lipson, Crabtree and Deer Park.
The by-election saw Labour increase our vote share and the Tory vote share fall considerably.
This weekend I’m campaigning in the Uxbridge by-election triggered by Boris Johnson resigning before the publication of the Privileges Committee report that found he repeatedly lied to Parliament. Let’s make that a Labour Gain.
Congratulations Paul. Here’s the results
LAB: 58.76% (+6.66)
CON: 20.64% (-15.56)
GRN: 9.57% (+2.27)
LDEM: 3.9% (-0.8)
IND: 3.37% (New)
Heritage: 2.64% (New)
TUSC: 1.12% (-0.28)
