Not sure how much of the student population at Keele would turn out to vote anyway. I know that when I was studying there I had my GE vote registered in Aberconwy constituency, but I can't say how many other students did the same.
Whilst the Labour vote did pick up in 2015, so did the Conservative vote. Judging by previous results this seat has been trending Conservative for while now, so I wouldn't put it past it to turn blue this time around.

The story, which is NOT TRUE, goes that a group of Labour supporters set fire to the Liberal battlebus after finding it just after the election, and the Liberals didn't complain because they knew they deserved it.
Socialism makes war upon a system, not upon a class
Results from the county council elections in Newcastle, with changes from 2013. Only whole divisions are included. This means that the result exclude around half of Chesterton ward and a part of Halmerend ward.
No sign of campaigning here yet other than a few leaflets. If one uses the County Council election as a guide it would lend credence to this being a somewhat easy Conservative gain. Their leads in usually marginal wards such as Porthill, Clayton, Wolstanton and Thistleberry appear to have been huge.
