I wouldn't be surprised! We were close last time. We will see on Friday evening. Just from what I have seen so far, we will be over 5% in C&S. I also think we will do better than 2012. Things look promising (I hope to explain more on this once things get declared). However, as a Green in the constituency, I hope I don't have Green tinted specs.
Well I suppose we'll have to wait and see.
"Friday evening", so we won't be getting these results on Thursday night with the rest? That's a shame.
Votes will be counted at Kensington Olympia on Friday, as is the norm with the London Assembly election.
My prediction for the Croydon & Sutton constituency: Conservative - 36% Labour - 35% Liberal Democrats - 12% UKIP - 9% Green - 7% APP - 0.5% NF - 0.5%
This may be the closest constituency of the election. Labour will carry Croydon, but Sutton may see the Tories cling on.
My prediction wasn't too bad in the end. Underestimated the Tory vote and overestimated Labour. Failed to take into account any incumbency factor Steve O'Connell may have.
Liberal Democrats nearly dropped under 10% and only just held on to third place. Greens result was pretty darn good, probably helps the Sutton branch are far more organised then they were in 2012. Can't wait for the ward breakdowns to be released.
