Further Euro election data crunching

Some further odds and ends from data mining the Grauniad's spreadsheet:

Strongest Tory share of the vote - Gibraltar 51.9% (I suspect our man in Gib might have been part of that number)
Weakest - The Rhondda - 5.25%

Labour

Strongest SoV - Newham - 40.3%
Weakest - Isles of Scilly - 3.12%

Lib Dems

Strongest - South Lakeland (Cumbria) - 36.8%
Weakest - The Rhondda - 4.57% / North (Somewhere in Scotland) 4.56%

UKIP

Strongest - Torbay - 34.4%
Weakest - Gibraltar - 1.4%

Fringe parties later, or maybe tomorrow.

Yes, I might have scared a few people by lurking with a rosette outside a Gibraltar polling station for a few hours. Being Counting Agent took me back a few years too.

The shock is that UKIP actually got a single vote from here. Their policies would have the Spanish close the border as they did in the '80's. Of my company of 30 staff, only 4 live in Gib. Politics aside - realism says that Better Off Out would close Gib down tomorrow.

Stout work sir. On the basis of our share of the vote in your neck of the woods, you ought to be in line for at least a gold star.

I suppose one should not be too surprised by quixotic electoral choices - look at all the idiots who voted for the Khmer Vert. Of which more later.

"Strongest SoV - Newham - 40.3%".

Not so long ago Labour's average vote would have been higher than 40.3%.

Ross - Agreed, 40.3 is pretty poor for a borough Labour owns.
