Queensbury being only one of three wards that elected the far-right in 2011 that I've came across so far. Still, more than can be said for the far-left, sadly.

You really need to see it in isolation to notice how odd the boundaries are.

The Queensbury BNP councillors (who are a married couple) have since left the party and have been signing Conservative nomination forms.

How a seat with an MP like Phil Davies has a Green councillor, i'll never guess.

That's because Shipley is not like the rest of the seat. It's really quite bohemian in its way (includes Saltaire and so on). Places like Bingley and Denholme are... er... not.

The very un-bohemian Denholme is, of course, not to be confused with the actor Denholm Elliott who most certainly was.

The word 'bohemian' was mentioned and, right on cue, Hebden Bridge!

Fixed.

I have a target of getting the 2010/2011 Mets finished on the 25th of April, which is a date of some significance to me.  I am not sure whether this will happen.

East:


I too have my own target for getting these finished: the 3rd May - if I fail to get them finished they'd undoubtedly take a back seat to collating the 2012 results and I wouldn't know when I'd get them complete.

Nice! There's a small detatched part of Milton ward just to the north east of Cambridge that hasn't been coloured in though, always catches me out Smiley

That seems to be Airfield ward (probably named after RAF Marham) in King's Lynn and West Norfolk. I can see a couple of other split Green/Tory wards, Elmswell and Norton in Mid Suffolk and Beccles North in Waveney.

I'd have never have noticed that in a million years - thanks. Fixed.

There's also a Green/Tory in St Albans (St Peters), but it's difficult to see given the size of the ward.

Looking at the damage in Scotland

Up first the Tories who must be on their knees that we have STV to thank for not being slaughter.

2007:



2012:



The darkest colour is 3 wards, the middle colour is 2 and the lightest is 1.

Worth noting a success and a failure. Two successes are Aberdeenshire where the Conservatives gained from the Lib Dem collapse. A second is Edinburgh, where they Tories held even. South Ayrshire too was not a disaster.

Two failures; locally the Conservatives suffered in South Lanarkshire. However what is noticable is the poor result in East Dumbartonshire; not one councillor was returned in Bearsden.

SNP. The Lib Dems held on. Speaking of which

Liberal Democrats



And now in 2012...



So bad news bears for the Lib Dems. Slaughtered in Aberdeen and Edinburgh. Their sparse representation in the West of Scotland is also reduced.

In the case of Aberdeen/Aberdeenshire actually winning no seats where they won two last time...

...anyways, St Andrews also stands out.

Right click for a proper sized image. Outline map nicked from someone believed to be residing somewhere in the western outskirts of Bolton. Errors possible, etc.

Anyways. A key would be an idea, wouldn't it?

Red = Labour, Grey = Independent, Green = Plaid, Blue = Tory, Yellow = LibDem.

So far, so simple.

Dark Grey = no election, that other Green = Llais (and a Plaid breakaway near Llanelli that I've trollishly given the same colour - they only won a single ward, shared with Labour), Purple = UKIP (only two of those; one in Merthyr - an incumbent originally elected as an Independent - and one in the Vale of Glamorgan), Pink = Continuity SDP (just a single councillor this time, again in Port Talbot). I think that's all.

Anyways, I can explain most things.
