Old Bexley and Sidcup byelection: Tories retain true-blue seat

The Guardian says The Conservatives have held the safe seat of Old Bexley and Sidcup in the first in a series of closely watched parliamentary byelections.

Louie French was elected as the new MP, replacing the well-liked former cabinet minister James Brokenshire, who died in October after suffering lung cancer.

After a relatively short campaign, French won 11,189 votes – ahead of the closest challenger, Labour’s Daniel Francis, who got 6,711.

The result saw the Tories’ majority in the 2019 general election of nearly 19,000 slashed to just 4,478 – but given turnout was deemed to be low, at 34%, the vote share will be pored over more closely.
