How about these – and there are others – names:

Midlothian (in Scotland so you know who won!) – yes it was the SNP

Halifax was a Labour hold but the majority (actually in most cases a plurality) was 428 votes.

Gloucester – The Tories held this one, too.

There is a Richmond (in York) and the Tories won here with UKIP a distant second.  In Richmond Park (I think within the City of London) the Conservatives held this seat, too.  With a majority of over 23,000 votes!

Dumfries and Galloway – In Scotland and the SNP won with the Tories a decent second.

Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale & Tweeddale – however was one of the three constituencies that did not go to the SNP.  The Tories won by less than a thousand votes.

Kilmarnock and Loudoun – you get TWO Old Dominion names in one district.  It was in Scotland and you know what happened: A nearly 14,000 vote margin for the SNP.

Chatham & Aylesford – Yes another Tory hold.

Portsmouth has a North and a South.  The North is another Tory hold but the LibDem candidate might be a distant relative – Darren Sanders.  Should have run for UKIP!  Portsmouth South is a Conservative pick up from the Liberal Democrats.

Sussex Mid was another Conservative hold.

Stafford?  There are several seats with “Stafford” in it but this one is a Tory hold

Finally – Windsor – The Conservatives won 63+ percent of the vote and crushed the others.

There are many more:  Suffolk has four districts, for example.  But I had to stop somewhere.  Enjoy!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
